There's a game call “Truth or Dare,” I've never played, but seen it in lots of movies. I imagine if I did play, it would be very boring. Honesty is the best policy is my hallmark, so I'm pretty sure I'd always choose truth. I call myself a Goody-Two-Shoes in a self-depreciating way. I'm not a big risk taker, I stay between the lines, and follow the rules. I was raised to tell the truth, which makes life easier than when you have to keep track of lies. It also makes you trustworthy and I like that. I can't remember ever being dared to do anything; if I have been, it probably didn't change my mind about doing it or not. That's just not me. If you say that makes me a wimp, that's okay— I'll stay in my corner with my burger and let Popeye handle the daring-do.
