After my last, rather wallowing, post, I though I'd lighten things up a bit on this blog with a follow-on from my grandsons' recent visit.
We were discussing the evils of lying, but the necessity of lying occasionally to save somebody's feelings
Me: for example, when you receive a present, and you don't really like it, but you want to say something polite. What would you say?
Eleven-year old grandson (after much deliberate thought): Have you kept the receipt?
Well, at least it's along the right lines...
