Kids lie to their parents. Workers lie to their managers.
Partners lie to on another.
Everyone lies. It’s plain and simple.
This was quite obvious earlier this year as I was cycling along the peninsula with Action Man while we searched for the Legend so we could ride down to Sorrento together as a pack.
We stopped off on a corner, which just so happened to be the location of a cafe. And as per normal, there were a couple of cyclists sitting down and enjoying a well earned cafe latte.
As we started chatting, one of them lit up a cigarette and casually smoked as we continued our conversation. I finally asked the smoker how often he smoked. His response stumped me.
I only smoke when I go out cycling on the weekends. We do an easy 40 kms, find a cafe, have a couple of coffees as I have a few ciggies and then head home. My wife asks me every now and again if I smoke at work, which I don’t. So I tell her I don’t smoke.
So not sure how to respond, I left him and his Jive Talkin. I said my farewells and headed back onto the road for another 70 kms with Action Man.
All in all the ride was great, and I did stop off for a coffee near the end of the journey. But no cigarette.
