That's the trick of succesfull black lying too: Lace the lie with facts wich suits the listener!
I learned many years ago when doing pub quizzes... give the answer they are expecting not the answer that is actually correct
Not that I'm a compulsive liar, but since I noticed the trick I can't hold myself from testing it from time to time - One could be in need of a good lie someday, in wich case it will be good to be routined ;-)
Beside it's good to know as routine makes it easier to spot when other do the trick, wich happens almost daily in politics :-o
