Moms are the best. Lying to them is the worst, but we all do it daily. Here are a few prime examples.

1. “How was your day?”

What you tell your mom: “good!”

What you’re really thinking: “I have $8 in my bank account and twenty-seven things to do but it would sound whiny to complain to you at this point — please offer me money. Please just offer.”

2. “How’s work?”

What you tell your mom: “Can’t complain!”

What you’re really thinking: “Do you have 20 minutes for me to complain?”

3. “Are you eating right, sweetheart?”

What you tell your mom: “Oh, you know. Taking my vitamins. Uh —”

What you’re really thinking: “PLEASE MOVE IN WITH ME FOR A COOL DAY AND MAKE ENOUGH FOOD FOR THE MONTH. I HAVEN’T EATEN ANYTHING BUT CARBS FOR SEVEN WEEKS.”

4. “Are you seeing anyone?”

What you tell your mom: “No one serious, ha, Mom come on. Anyway —”

What you’re really thinking: “I’ve downloaded, deleted, and re-downloaded Tinder 12 times. You can’t handle the truth.”

5. “How’s *insert named of estranged friend here*?”

What you tell your mom: “Oh, I don’t know actually! Haven’t heard from them in a while.”

What you’re really thinking: “Fuck if I know. Dead? Lol jk I’d never wish death on someone. Just like, fuck that bit— Mom? I’m sorry for the language, okay? Hello? Mom, — hello?”
