Hey, Geppetto, You're Never Gonna Believe This!

8:23 am

Mom: Why are you eating candy before breakfast?

Maura: I ate breakfast. I had cereal.

Mom: Oh, yeah? Where is the bowl?

Maura (looking me straight in the eye): I already washed it and put it away.

Mom (looking in the empty sink): I don't believe you. Put the candy away and eat some breakfast.

Maura (sticking to her story): I already ate breakfast, Mom, but I'll eat again.

Insert a conversation about lying and the consequences thereof. The amusing thing is that I remember telling my mother lies like this and then wondering how she could always tell I was lying. Now I know. Eight year olds are terrible liers.
