Blood Is Thicker Than Honesty

(My mom and I walk into a store together, talking to each other. We look very much alike. A woman is by the entrance and this is our encounter with her.)

Woman: “My! Are you two related?!”

(My mom and I look at each other and laugh.)

Mom: “No! We just met right outside the store!”

Me: “You don’t really think we look related, do you?”

Woman: “That’s so funny! You look so much alike! Now that I’ve had more time, I can see that you’re not related though.”

Mom: “How can you tell?”

Woman: “Well, she’s taller than you, your hair is darker, and your features are different. Anyway, I better get back to shopping!”

(We are browsing racks when I find a top I like.)

Me: “Mom! Look at this!”

Mom: “I like it!”

Woman: *from other side of store* “I knew it! You lying liars of lies for lying!”
