Tales of irony... My brother was telling me that the first time that he remembers lying was in [Catholic] confession. It was his second time, and being about age seven, he didn't feel that he had done anything wrong since the last visit. But the nun, his teacher, insisted that he must have done something wrong. So he was instructed to go into the confessional and tell the priest what he has done. Since the little guy couldn't think of anything to say, he lied. What's more, he believes that this was the first time that he ever told a lie.
