Pants on Fire – prompt by the Daily Post

Pants on Fire

What was the last lie you told? Why did you tell it?


I am not normally a liar. I have told a few white lies in my time, but as for whoppers, usually not me. I can’t help myself. If I tell a lie I immediately confess so those don’t count. When I was a young adult a long time ago I did tell a few whoppers, but I can’t confess those because someone would get hurt or two someones actually.

I would say the last lie I told was to my daughter because I didn’t want to go to the grandson’s soccer game so I told her I was sick. Nothing major. The truth was I was in bed and not getting out.


About Tessa

My name is Tessa Dean and I am an author and blogger. My writing styles vary and I love writing using prompts. I am also writing my first book, a Memoir entitled "Government Property - A Memoir of a Military Wife".  This is being published on the blog rather than the traditional way. I am putting up chapters as I go along. I keep my blog filled with useful content, stories, and poems. Plenty to keep you busy. I have also been interviewed by blogs and had other posts published on many different blogs. I also wrote a series of articles on Bipolar Disorder for IBPF (International Bipolar Foundation). I am in my 60’s and disabled which allows me plenty of time to write to my heart’s content. I live in southern New Jersey and have 3 children and 5 grandchildren. My oldest grandchild is a Sargent in the United States Marine Corps.
