The “little white lie.” That one little sentence you mutter that sometimes morphs into something bigger than life. We’ve all told them and we’ve all heard them.
There are many reasons for telling a little white lie. To spare someone’s feelings, “Love your outfit!” To get yourself out of doing something, “I’m sorry, I can’t make it to your party because my dog is sick.” To appear nice, “I’m so happy to see you again.” To make excuses, “I didn’t get the job done because the electricity went out in my house.”
We all tell ourselves that it’s not a big deal if it doesn’t appear that anyone will get hurt in the process or if no one finds out about it, but what happens when one little white lie leads to more because to admit to it would have consequences?
This is the dilemma faced by Lisette Lavigne in Miss Lavigne’s Little White Lie by Samantha Grace. Lisette is desperate to get her and her brother out of New Orleans, but in order to sail on Captain Daniel Hillary’s ship, she must tell a little white lie. Obviously, there will be trouble if she’s found out. This book is captivating and charming (and that's no lie).
I’ll admit I’ve told my share of little white lies that started in grade school, “My dog ate my homework.” There still are times I use them especially to make someone feel good, “Your lasagna was delicious!”
How about you? Any “little white lies” you’d like to share?
