Practical Reality

Practical Reality

 Neither confirm

nor deny

if “I don’t remember”

will fly,

but never, give a yes

or a no.

*

 For as hard

as you try

you won’t outrun

the lie.

It’s far better to say

I don’t know.”

  1. One of my past principals standard answer on this topic was “I’ll get back with you on it “. He usually never did.

  2. I think those three little words are so hard for most people. They think it makes them stupid. In fact it makes them smart and even smarter if they add…But I’ll find out… And do! :D

  3. I have always preferred this than Impractical reality.
