Life, universe and everything

Liar, liar, your pants are on FIRE!

Girls can usually tell when guys are lying. We just do, men. Think of it as part of our female intuition, or a part of our brains equipped with a lie-radar if it makes you feel any better.

I can always tell when D is trying to trick me. Like when I ask “did you get the new season of The Office?” and he’d say “No… I haven’t” although he has and gives it all away with a small smile which he tries to hold back but cannot. That and the look in his eyes activate my lie-radar: beep-beep-beep-beep. And he knows it. But D is a perseverant guy, he doesn’t give up that easily and every once in a while he’ll give it another shot.

One morning after I woke up he came to me and said something which seemed kind of bizarre so I asked “Are you trying to trick me?”. To which he replied “Can you tell if I’m lying?”. I carefully went over the tell-tale signs in my mind but couldn’t find any: no smile, no funny look, nothing. “No, I can’t tell if you’re lying” I said. And a feeling of panic took over me: have I lost my edge? Have my muses deserted me? or worse: is D actually getting good at this? [gasp] 😉

“Excellent! We’re getting there!” said D while he was rubbing his hands together and letting out a Muttley-esque laugh “Hih hih hih!”.

The title of this post was inspired from Frank Caliendo’s impersonation of Al Pacino. Caliendo is a very talented stand-up comedian. He does impressions of Bush, Clinton, Al Pacino, Robert DeNiro, characters from Seinfeld and Scooby Doo, Jay Leno and other guys I don’t know.

My favorite is the DeNiro as Frankenstein impression. Which one do you like best?

  • I’m not surprised. It’s rather well known that women are better communicators than men (in a vague, social-scientific sense).

    After all, my day consists of grunts and the occasionally nod of the head. How can I be expected to compete with a women?

  • @Phil : Don’t fold just yet…I’m sure that D is as successful in detecting Alex’ lies as she is in detecting his 😛

    On a different note, women are actually better when it comes to detecting body odor : http://www.physorg.com/news158303679.html
    Maybe what happens is D swets a lot when he’s lying and A can smell that :)) How funny would that be? :))))

    I’m sure that’s not the case here though 😛
