Liar! Liar! Boots On Fire!




Saturday 9: Liar, Liar

1. What is the last "white" lie that you told?

I was chatting with an ex-boyfriend online - the second guy I semi-seriously dated after my divorce. We had a lot of heart-pounding breathless chemistry but in the long run, that's all we had. After we broke up, he quickly married someone else and divorced AGAIN. (That's me: She-Who-Sends-Men-Screaming-Into-Matrimony-Or-Insane-Asylums, but I digress). So, we're reminiscing about the good ole' days when we didn't know any better and our single lives hadn't gotten complicated yet, he hadn't married the wrong person yet AGAIN and we were just starting out in the land of mid-life dating. Anyway, he suddenly went tres nostalgic and I told him that our first date was the best first date I ever had. (something about boots and zippers and sleeping children upstairs made it all so tantalizing...but I digress). It was not true. But he wanted to trip down memory lane with my brown suede zip ups, his love life was in the latrine AGAIN and I didn't see the need to rearrange history. It WAS a great first date but not the best. Brace yourself for a rambling confession damn Baptist upbringing: When it was happening it WAS the best first date I ever had at the time (doesn't that count?) but then along came other dates with other people that were way and above the boot date night because I ended up falling in love with the REAL best-first-date-person and alas, it wasn't him, so I tenderly white-lied him.......sort of......didn't I?

Justification is my forte.
Next question!



2. Can you forgive a liar?

Depends on how fast (or slowly) he unzips my boots.


3. Do you tend to exaggerate or underestimate?

Hmmm..........intriguing question, Sam.
But really.
I never underestimate the power of 3-inch heels and a pencil skirt memory.
Exaggerations are not needed.



4. Do you hold a grudge?

Time out for a serious answer:
No. When I forgive, I forgive.



5. What's the biggest lie you've ever told?

Truth be told, it was last night.
Again.
The guy in the other window said, "You have my undivided attention little cutie"....I felt so guilty that I was talking to boot-date-guy at the same time that I lost all track of common decency and told him he had mine as well. Well?? What else was I supposed to do?
Introduce them?!

I should never try to multi-task men.


6. Are there times that you feel that it is okay to lie?

Apparently so!


7. Did you ever end a relationship because of lies?
No. I've terminated "dating someone" because of lies (ie: oh! you accidentally sent your other girlfriend's email to ME by mistake. Shame on you!) - but never a relationship.

Email queenoffools @ yahoo.com for further details.
Only serious busybodies need apply.

8. Do you think you can tell when someone is lying to you?

Look me in the eyes again and ask that question, Dear Meme. I'm recovering from a wicked migraine and my royal focus is a tad off center. Things were so much easier before I became a transparently naive BlogQueen.

9. Have you been caught lying?

Not unless I got those two chat windows mixed up last night....

I am so going to hell.

You wear boots? ;)

Southern (in)Sanity said...

Multiple chat windows can be a very dangerous thing.

Charles Gramlich said...

These boots are made for walking.

Mimi Lenox said...

Bud- Brown. Zippered. Suede. Black. Melani. Leather. Boots.

Mimi Lenox said...

Southern- You can say THAT again.

Mimi Lenox said...

Charles - So said Nancy Sinatra. Great song and now it is stuck in my head. Thank you!!

Tarheel Rambler said...

It's a good thing married men can still fantasize. And I'll leave it at that. :0)

Mimi Lenox said...

Lee - Wink.

Travis said...

You must warn a guy when you're going to pull out the boots for a post.

Dang. I'm all light-headed now.

Misty Dawn said...

Well, it's Saturday... I worked at the equipment repair shop and within two hours started developing a wicked migraine and getting nauseated... I think it's the fumes.

Mimi Lenox said...

Travis - Sorry. I forgot you're a "boots and heels" guy...

Mimi Lenox said...

Misty - Most likely. I can get a short wift (wift?) of someone's perfume and it comes on heavily with lots of pain. Is there no ventilation there?
UGH. So sorry.

Mimi Lenox said...

Paula - That cracked me up.

Julie said...

Whiff! It's whiff Mimi.

There--my job is done. May I take a nap now?

The Social Frog said...

I LOVE boots & heels :)

Vodka Mom said...

Do I hold a grudge? No, I don't. Frankly, it's my horrible memory- but I like to call it my ability to be a Christian. (And I'll NEVER admit I said that. NEVER!!!)


Really, when it comes down to it- we are ALL HUMAN. If you can't forgive, what's the point?

Now, where's my damn drink...

Vodka Mom said...

by the way, if you're going to hell- will you save me a seat by the window? I don't do well in the heat.

Braja said...

Oh come ON, Vodka...that's the most interesting place. And does that mean you're on the short bus?

Mimi Lenox said...

Julie - I should have known that. Sigh.

Mimi Lenox said...

Social Frog - I always (still) get compliments on the brown suede boots. I love them!
I'm just glad they can't talk...

Mimi Lenox said...

Vodka Mom - Amen.
And pass the Godiva.

Mimi Lenox said...

VM - Stick your head in a freezer. Works for me!

Mimi Lenox said...

Braja - She'll do fine....I predict she won't end up in hell anyway....

Vodka Mom said...

I'm not so sure about that.

That' okay, I'll bring on of those little mini-fans....

Patti said...

Those bloots (that's blog + boots) seem to have gotten you into some blouble (that's blog + trouble)

Not very royal behavior, I daresay, Your Highness.

Mimi Lenox said...

Princess Patti - Well, there are boots and then are "boots"...
I guess I should just plead guilty to non-royal behavior and call it a day, eh?

Ricardo said...

There is lying and there is playing the field. Sounds like you are doing the latter. Your single and vivacious so have fun with it. Things would be different if you were deeply involved. I would not swear the lying thing on this one.

Mimi Lenox said...

Ricardo-The-Connecticut-Dweller - ME? Plaaayyinngg???

You cut me to the core.
Ouch.

Mimi Lenox said...

P.S. For all you know the Bennington Girl could have been in the other other other window. I was just looking out for ya! Playing. Ha!

shopannies said...

LOL great answers

Linda said...

I wish I could wear boots but alas I suffer from a rather debilitating affliction called "fat calves"! I do wear EMS boots to work but alas, on the sexy scale they rate a -4!

And now I have Nancy Sinatra singing in my head thank you very much!

Mimi Lenox said...

shopannies - Glad to give you a laugh.

Mimi Lenox said...

Linda - I don't care what you say. Boots are sexy no matter what.
Just are.
So there.

Are you arguing with the Queen?
Huh??!

I didn't think so...

Sarge Charlie said...

boots are hot..........

I hope you like my story, my oldest daughter started askin questions, maybe because i am old so i dicided to do it form start to finish. BTW, my daughter lives in San Dieago and is as far left as you can go, at 12, she was in protest marches while i was in vietnam. Some of the genes did not stick :>

Sarge Charlie said...

btw, my mother lied to me, i did not go blind.

Mimi Lenox said...

Sarge - Another vote for the boots. Yes!

But seriously, your story is wonderful. I think you should print it out and put it in book form when you're finished. There are services that let you print your blog out and binds it up. You've lived quite a life, sir. Your children are going to cherish this forever.

Your daughter is seriously far left? Who knew??!!!
