Are your pants on fire?

Posted May 15th, 2014

My favourite story I heard around Loaf HQ today, hands down, was our Head of Words telling me that - as a child - her parents insisted that when the ice cream van played its jolly music, it meant it was out of ice cream. So cruel! This tale of deceit sparked a whole host of confessions from the rest of the team:

(The Classic)
"I frequently remind my son that carrots will give him night-vision like Batman. He eats every last one while wearing his Bat cape and Bat mask."

(The Festive Threat)
"If my brothers and I were naughty, my dad would threaten to write to Father Christmas and tell him not to bother coming this year. I'd start crying whenever he so much as picked up a pen and paper."

(The Whopper)
"I told my niece that we couldn't go to Hamleys because there was a fire and it burned down."

What little white lies were you told as a child? Or what corkers have you told your kids recently? Let's hear them. There's a set of our Lil Softie bed linen (pictured above) in it for you...

Email us the story at [email protected], scribble it on our Facebook page or tweet us using #littlewhitelies. We'll choose our favourite on Monday 19th May and announce a winner on our blog the next day.

Right. I'm off to tell my kids that every time they squabble, it makes the Easter Bunny cry…
