Do you know the difference between a fib and a lie?
I like to fib a lot to bring some spice to my day. You know, if Andrew asks me how my day is going, I might just reply that it was fine until I lost my sense of smell just moments ago... when in fact my smeller works fine. Then in the middle of our conversation, I might interrupt to say, "Oh, my sense of smell is back!"
Why do I do this? I guess because I am simple and easily amused.
