Last Sunday evening, we were having dinner at McDonald’s while waiting for our turn to watch the Avengers End Game movie. While we were chatting amongst ourselves over casual topics, the little girl suddenly asked, “Tita, are white lies okay? Ate Chloe said there are white lies but mommy said a white lie is still a lie.”

“Yes baby, that’s why it has ‘lie’ on its name. All lies are wrong, white lie or not,” Tita answered.

“No, not all lies are wrong,” the little girl objected.

“Well, it’s not wrong if it’s lie — ‘lie’,” grinned the little girl as she motioned laying her head to sleep on her hand.
