First of all, how in the world can a person keep up so many lies for so many years? It must have been exhausting. To continue to deny things for SO LONG that he knew were true just boggles my mind.
Did he get to a point where he actually believed he wasn’t lying?
Does he have no conscience? Most of us were raised to know right from wrong. We have that inherent sense. Is he just missing something? Does he not have that nagging little voice (mine sounds like my grandmother) berating him every single time he lied? Or did he just ignore it until it went away – in a sense, was he able to dismiss his conscience? Isn’t that a bit sociopathic? Where did he learn such a win at no cost attitude? What does his poor mom think?
What are his motives? At this point, why do we care? Who does he think will trust him in the future? And what in the world will he tell his children? How will he teach his own kids not to lie? Surely, not by example. How can he control their thoughts of him or keep them from ever seeing the interview clips?
And those are just the tip of my questions. I could go on and on . . . .
But I won’t. In other sports news, boy it’s been a big week, (Manti Te’o’s confusing fake girlfriend debacle), I think that anyone who has a three year internet dating relationship, that hasn’t turned into a personal relationship in those years, is pretty questionable. How can that be? Just more questions!
On to Friday Finds:
I usually like to make my own protein smoothies but sometimes it’s not always feasible. One day this week was such a time. Therefore, I got a pre-made Bolthouse Farms Mango Protein Plus Protein shake. I did not have high expectations. I’m the first to admit when I am wrong and this was such a time. This was really good and filling! It has 190 calories with 16 grams of protein. The sugar was a little high for my liking at 27 grams but it just made me more mindful the rest of the day to watch the sugar. In a pinch, this is a good option.
Enjoy your Friday!!
Any new thoughts on Lance? I teased the Husband today to “not be a Lance” when he didn’t want to admit to something to do with household chores . . .thought I was being clever. Can I tell you how happy I am to finally see some blue sky today? And you?
