Truth is Better than Lies

Daily Prompt: Truth Serum
You’ve come into possession of one vial of truth serum. Who would you give it to (with the person’s consent, of course) — and what questions would you ask?

The first choice will be a politician, if he is getting my vote. This option is in the future; the next person I could think of is a lady among my acquaintances.

I am irked by her obsession with people’s ages, specially women. She is forever telling (whoever is unfortunately there, where she is), that she is in bad health, and that’s why she looks elder than her real age.

If she is sitting next to you, she will come out with a age related question. Then she will emphasize she is way younger than you.

Who is she trying to fool? What’s she trying to prove? Only she knows.

Sometimes she strikes down ten years of her supposed age, and sometimes five. At times she forgets, and comes out with a new one. Why she is at it? I don’t know, and I don’t care.

If I give her the “Truth Serum”, I don’t think she will take it.

I want to say to her, but I don’t think I will ever say:

Deep down in your heart you know
What is true, and what are lies
Please tell me what is true
Spare me from your lies
