You've got to tell us what the little lie was, so we can all assess how white it was using the SRM scale .

Shut the spigot on my fermenter while holding the hose up. Spigot has drain hole. Hose drained on jeans.

Went to dump a 5 gallon bucket of sanitizer down the drain after brewing, sanitizer hit an empty bowl that was used for grain then about 2 gallons shot out of the sink all over my floor. My floor is now sanitized...

Ok, I think it was three white lies over the weekend. 1st, a backgrounder. She hurt/has a bad back (spine L3/L4) and I had to do pretty much all of the house cleaning.

Sat morning house cleaning
swmbo: Did you use windex on all of the glass/marble tables in the living room?
Desert: Yes dear (busted).

Sat night party (I was supposed to be DD but she wasn't really drinking)
swmbo: How many jello shots and beers did you have?
Desert: 2 & 3. Wrong she was watching & counting. It was 3 & 4. I just lost count .

Sun morning NFL at the bar and the rest of the day.
I didn't really do anything wrong but somehow guilt was set upon me as I left for the bar and then brought a buddy home and we polished off the IPA. Guess she wanted me to be more productive on Sun.

Good to be back to work!!
