Truth Is

On Facebook, one of the games that people play is Truth Is: That is "like my status and then I will say something about you on your Facebook wall". Typically the truth is something about how nice you look or how pretty your profile picture is or that you and the person should hang out together soon.

I wonder how Truth Is would work in the real world. For instance, my mom always taught me that if I did not have anything nice to say, then don't say anything at all. I adhere to that rule to a fault, but there are times when I would like to say:

Truth is? I do not like all your political posts on your wall.

Truth is? Could you please use a mint.

Truth is? Pig tails are for the under 10 crowd, not for the over 40 crowd, UNLESS you are going to a rodeo.

Truth is? You totally just hurt my feelings and now I want to kick you.

Truth is? Why are you staying with him/her?

Truth is? You really need to say thank-you once in a while.

Truth is? Your picture is pretty because it seems like you air brushed 20 years off your age.

Truth is? You are not really nice, and I cannot understand why people don't see through you.

I don't think this is a game that I will play on Facebook anytime soon.
However, if you want to rate my status, feel free. Anyone who is reading this is a 10 in my book :)

The kicking comment made me snort, so true! There are a few people like that in my life too.

Yes, well, all those reasons plus some: why I stay off of Facebook, so annoying!
Call me an old fuddy-duddy, I don't care.

Feel free to hand over a mint. I'd really prefer not to offend.

Pigtails can be worn in Zumba class too, just FYI.
