Walking in the fog…

Today on my walk there wasn’t any sun but it was still wonderful.
Today was a day of cool misty fog.
I love walking in the fog.

As is my habit while walking I was letting my mind wander.
Once again it lit upon the In Other Words prompt,

An exaggeration is a truth that has lost its temper.
Kahlil Gibran

It’s a lovely quote but I don’t agree.
I think an exaggeration is a truth that has lost its way
and stumbled into the world of lies.
Maybe exaggeration isn’t an all out lie
but it isn’t an all out truth either.

I do my share of exaggerating and fudging the truth to be sure
so I know of what I write.
I try hard to stick to just the facts as boring as they may be.
Yet, there are those times that boring is…well boring
and I perhaps embellish the telling a bit.
Bet you do too.
If you say you never do then I am pretty sure you are …
exaggerating.
