    Most kids, if not all, lie to their parents somewhere along the way, including myself.
    What's the most inventive lie you've told your parents?

    Even if they didn't believe it for a second, or they still believe it to be true now, what's your most inventive?

    Blaming the brothers is always an excellent option, needless to say after a good 14/15 year run it doesn't work anymore.

    Or
    (Not really inventive but always funny to tell people haha)
    I walk in stumbling about (many drinks later) and the parents ask how much have I've had to drink. First I say none and they see right through this so I change my answer to a few. After a goodwhile of arguing that a few could mean anything from 2-5, I sat down and threw up on my dad losing my arguement in the process.

    Aha, gotta say, that is brilliant!

    I used to blame stuff on my brothers all the time Or if I was in trouble, I'd drop them in it too

    When my mother saw my husband (then boyfriend) sneaking out of my bedroom (I slept in the conservatory) after he had snuck in at night....I told her it was actually my friend Sarah that she saw.

    She didn't believe me at all. She kept saying "It was Phil, I saw Phil's long brown hair."

    At which point I panicked and said "No it was Sarah, and you're wrong, she had on her blue hat!" (Where the hell that came from I don't know).

    Anyway she marched off down to Sarah's house and asked her if she had come round that morning and if so, what had she been wearing. I had had the foresight to text Sarah though and ask her to cover for me, so VERY VERY begrudgingly she told my mam that she had been round yes and that she had been wearing her blue hat.

    My mam TOTALLY didn't believe it, but she had to let it go after that.

    Lied about a boyfriend. The number of times I've said I'm going on a conference/field trip and whatnot when instead I've been over at his for the night...

    I think they must have realised by now as I always use the excuse of 'just watching a dvd if I have a girl around'.
