Well dinner #2 sort of went well. Except my mum's constant imputations on my honesty. To whit I am a stinking liar. Apparently. I like to think of myself as honest. Sure the odd 50 or so white lies a day (I think that's average), but not fundamentally dishonest save for say feelings about how I feel about some people or things where I don't want to say anything for hurting someone's feelings and so forth.
But basically I am honest.
For example tired of the shit I got for drinking Diet Coke one day in front of mum I rang the Coke hotline listed on the can. Had a conversation with a nice lady and found out that a can of DC has about as much caffeine in it as 1/3 of a cup of coffee (Mum's gripe).
Apparently she thinks I made the coke lady's answers up. As in there was no one on the other end of the phone.
Really, I am not that devious. Sure occasionally I may cheat at UNO (fun for ages 4+) when you stick more than one card down. Tee hee. But that doesn't make me a compulsive liar of the 'I waz kidnapped by aeliuns and theys done gone and poked at me cookie hole' trailer park Jerry Springer' variety.
Still apart from that it went well. Though I was a bit tiddly and shouted down a couple of times. Oh the caramel slice thing from last night got a mention (by me) whereupon I kept saying how I wasn't allowed any on account of having some within a 24 hour period.
