: 1. Do you ever tell lies? Don't lie!
Yes, and I blush and fidget whenever I do. I'm such a lousy liar.
: 2. Are "little white lies" okay if no harm is done?
It depends on the lie, the situation, the person, and my mood at the time.
: 3. Would you lie to your parents? Would you lie to your significant other?
Absolutely have lied to my parents, probably 80% of the time I've ever talked to/with them. It was/is a matter of survival. Mom's bipolar, Dad was a mentally ill convicted murderer. (An infamous Canadian incident long, long ago. He's thankfully long dead now.) I was an angry-terrified self-medicating child of their war. *winks and chuckles* Of course, since I've been an adult (since some time around 1977), I've let them have it with every blunt truthful confession I could remember.
Significant other? Course! He doesn't need to know exactly how much I spend at the plants nursery. And he only lets me know six months after the fact whenever he's bought yet another toy at the local music store.
: 4. Have you ever been caught lying?
Yep. Darn tricky mess.
: 5. What is the biggest lie you've ever told (that you can talk about here)?
I'm really 92 years old. And I look great for my age.
That was fun!
