This was nominated for the Hugo for Best Short Story. I am reluctantly giving it 3 stars. The fantasy premise was very thin (all of a sudden, people start getting soaked with water when they tell a lie), and it seemed like a mostly unnecessary embellishment on the story.

Still, it was a well-written story about a man trying to come out to his family. It just felt like a story with a giant metaphor hanging over it.
