Keeping the Stories Straight

Rachel Rosenberg was visiting her mother in Florida when they bumped into Ethel Epstein whom they knew from back home.

"Is this your daughter?" Mrs. Epstein asked. "I remember her when she was this high. How old is she now?"

Without pausing, Rachel’s mother said, "Twenty-nine." Rachel, 45, nearly fainted on the spot.

After everyone had said their good-byes, Rachel asked her mother why she’d told such a fib.

"Well," she replied, "I’ve been lying about my age for so long, it suddenly dawned on me that I need to start lying about yours too."
