10 Lies Every New Yorker Has Told Themselves At Least Once

“If lying was a crime, we’d all be in jail” (Pretty Little Liars, 2011). Preach it, sister. If you say you’ve never lied, you’re a liar. Which means you’d be lying about not lying, which is a lie so that makes you a liar. Have we lost you yet? The point is, we all lie. A lot. But it’s not that bad, as we mostly just lie to ourselves. Often to make us feel better about the price we’re paying for a drink, or the bad and irresponsible things that we’re about to do (like drinking lots of expensive alcohol). We New Yorkers are pretty good at kidding ourselves…
