A Vice I Can't Let Go Of
Now, first thing's first: I am NOT a liar. As a matter of fact, I sometimes impress (and shock) myself with how honest I can be.
But, I have a flair for the dramatic. I'd like to think I am a natural story teller, and that this vice I have really just amplifies my abilities. I feel that "exaggeration is the spice of life."
I am an exaggerator. In my world, this spider
becomes this spider:
becomes this mess:
And my battered and bruised (but generally okay) heart (ego):
becomes something ripped from my chest, thrown on the floor and stomped on until it's a bloody pulp:
This is probably not the WORST little tidbit about myself I could offer. Rarely does my exaggeration hurt anyone, and like I said, it's not lying...not exactly.
And really, though my exaggerated descriptions of heated arguments, and people who I despise can leave me seething even though they're not worth the trouble, my vice has it's good points too.
becomes THIS humor:
This much love:
becomes this much love:
And that, my friends, is that.
