When I was a kid I was a chronic liar. I don’t know why but I would lie about even the dumbest things.
Anyway, I told my entire kindergarten class that my dad had died by being struck by lightning. The next week was “Bring your parent to class to talk about their job” and my dad drew the short straw and had to come in. He got a lot of questions about why he wasn’t dead and if it hurt to get struck by lightning.
