Oh Gosh, now you are meddling Doug!
That is my worst virtue, being truthful. I get chastised for that quite often.
Looks like I might be first again today??

Always be truthful, that way when you lie, you will be believed.

Ariel the Thief said...

Doug, I hope at least you can follow your own definitions...

Flip said...

As opposed to intentional deception?

Karen said...

I wasn't sure if humanity's oldest vanity was an apple core or a garden snake. Thanks for clearing that up.

TLP said...

It's the best policy in the end.

Does Truth lose its flavor on the bedpost overnight?

quilly said...

Truthful -- the painful but necessary responsibility of pointing out everybody else's mistakes.

TLP said...

Oh, Quilly, I think you've got it!

Truth: I know it when I hear it, and it is always exactly what I want to hear.

actonbell said...

I'm with Nessa on this one. Pulling this off can be risky, though.

Jim, looks like you're up to two virtues. Honesty and early rising.

Nessa, my father's version of that is to avoid profanity so people will blush when you cuss.

In truth, Ariel, I'm kind of counting on you to keep track.

Right, Flip. Unintentional dishonesty is a form of honesty, as we've learned.

Karen, my next blog might be theology r us.

Which end, TLP?

Evaporates completely, Icy, but it revives in the morning.

Quilly, I think this is why the most truthful teach school.

TLP, I think you're right.

You're a good citizen, Cooper.

Actonbell, if the opposite of truthful is silent, I'd go with silent.

Thin line, Bear.
