One time, my crush went on a booksale date with me. She sees her favorite book on the shelf. I was suddenly quiet so she asks me "Hindi mo pa siya nababasa?" Wanting to impress, I reply "Ay, ayan ba? Oo, siyempre, ganda niyan eh!" She then asks me what was the thing I liked most about the book. I told her that I had to go to the CR. I had Internet access on my phone, so I Sparksnoted the shit out of the book.
In a few minutes, I came back with enough info and told her everything, but she just stared at me. "Iba yata yung nabasa mong libro," she told me. We found out that there was another book that had the same title. I confessed, and she thought it was cute that I went through the trouble just to impress her.
That was probably the only time my lying ever worked out for me.
