PROMPTuesday #60: Lie to Me

We got a meme this week, folks. And I’m going with it because the topic intrigues me and I love to lie for sport. So by way of Green Girl, this meme/PROMPT is as follows:

 

“Sometimes you can learn more about a person by what they don’t tell you, or from the things they make up…”

So lie to me. Answer one question for each deadly sin with a made-up answer.

(Or a true answer…because I’ve never been one to hide my true self well, despite the lying for sport thing.)

 

Meanwhile, here is your assignment…

 

Pride

What is your biggest contribution to the world?

 

Envy

What do your coworkers have that you wish was yours?

 

Gluttony

What did you eat last night?

 

Lust

What really lights your fire?

 

Anger

What is the last thing that really pissed you off?

 

Greed

Name something you hoard and keep from others.

 

Sloth

What’s the laziest thing you ever did?

    Pride

    What is your biggest contribution to the world?

    A mocumentary called “Get It Write,” which chronicles a weekend writer’s conference. Written and filmed in the style of “Best in Show,” and “A Mighty Wind,” the film follows a hapless writer named Sandy Eggomama who halfheartedly listens in on seminars about story arcs and point of view while thinking that the best writers don’t give a shit about any of that. True enough, the star of the conference turns out to be a homeless hobo who wanders off the street into the conference and pens some senseless crap on a napkin that gets noticed by a hungry agent and published in a whoreish book called “It’s Not About the Bark. We Are Telepathic.”

     

    Envy

    What do your coworkers have that you wish was yours?

    A sense of direction and the Weight Watcher’s Smart Ones Baked Potato with Broccoli & Cheddar Frozen Food entree.

     

    Gluttony

    What did you eat last night?

    Chardonnay grapes and Pirate Booty. Chased with a chewable multi vitamin and carpet hair.

     

    Lust

    What really lights your fire?

    A scruffy man in a dive bar who had it all, but lost it in a bad Vegas bet. He spends his days drinking ’til dawn and talking physics. He wears Levis that cup his butt just so, but sag a bit in the middle. Also, piercing blue eyes that tend toward the weary yet hint at the man he used to be. He likes old country and whiskey shots. He makes no apologies. His nails are clean and he smells like Irish Spring. He doesn’t look back when he leaves in the morning.

     

    Anger

    What is the last thing that really pissed you off?

    I waved to you when I drove by, and you didn’t wave back.

     

    Greed

    Name something you hoard and keep from others.

    My swine flu vaccine.

     

    Sloth

    What’s the laziest thing you ever did?

    This.

     

  2. […] the week to figure out what was true, what was false, and who had us most convinced. Or something. “So lie to me”, Deb says. But I hear Jonny Lang singing it faintly in the background…as if he’s serenading her […]

  3. Brilliant–I like your anger one–and the vaccine. Snort!

    spend two hours practicing using the TV remote with my toes because I couldn’t be bothered to sit up so that I could reach it with my hands
