ZELLA COMPTON: He could almost have made me a believer

Have your say

A report has shown the average person tells 657 lies per year.

I was shocked at this outrageous behaviour, I hope the majority of those lies are little white ones.

Actually Christmas is a time for increased lies. For example, many men when asked ‘does my bum look big in this?’ will of course reply ‘no’ as their partner prepares  for a party.

You also have to fib to your kids at this time of year in order to prevent them hunting down presents.

My son’s eagle eyes spotted an Argos voucher I got after getting a few large presents and he asked: ‘Have you got me an iPod for Christmas?.

I had to think fast and told a big fat porky. I said Argos were giving the vouchers away to shoppers as they walked past.
