The other night, my eye happened to catch a particular hashtag on Twitter that was trending. For those new to the twitterverse, that means the phrase following the number sign (#) caught on as a theme that got people talking. In this case, it was “Lies I Told My Parents” and teens everywhere were fessing up.
I couldn’t help but laugh because some lies on there sounded mighty familiar – and not just around our house. I’m pretty sure a few of those classic lines came flying off my own tongue way back when. (Well, Mom?)
So, tell me this: Do any of these babies ring a bell? Come on, now, be honest.
#LiesIToldMyParents I wasn’t the only one who failed the test, everyone in the class did. #LiesIToldMyParents Yeah the parents are gonna be there…
#LiesIToldMyParents: Report cards haven’t come out yet.
#LiesIToldMyParents: If you buy me this I wont ask you for anything ever again!
#LiesIToldMyParents My phone was dead..
#LiesIToldMyParents We just watched a movie..
#LiesIToldMyParents I need the computer for homework! No I’m not on the Internet!
#LiesIToldMyParents I have no idea what that is and whatever that is, it isn’t mine.
#LiesIToldMyParents I don’t feel good, can i stay home?
#LiesIToldMyParents I’m not lying!
