It belongs to Wonder Woman and has several names...but only one purpose. It compels those it captures to obey and tell the truth. Magic Lasso, Lasso of Truth, Golden Lasso...as a mom and a teacher I want that mythical golden rope. Let's face it, the world would be a better place with a lot more obeying and truth telling!
Ah the truth...Pinocchio struggled with it and The Boy Who Cried Wolf lost his life for not respecting it. Some believe truth can be avoided by simply saying, "I don't know" or by giving the "look of heartfelt confusion" (that's my favorite).
Me-"Who drank the rest of the milk and put the EMPTY jug back in the refrigerator?"
Boy children- Open fridge and give the "look of heartfelt confusion"...glancing first to the empty plastic jug, then to me.
Me-"Who shot at the back door with their BB Gun?"
Boy children-Walk slowly to the back door and give the "look of heartfelt confusion"... glancing first to the cracked glass door-then to me.
Lets face it...we all mess up, make mistakes, and say things we later regret. But hey, here's an idea...Tell the truth about it! It's powerful! What if more people could simply say, "I did it. I'm sorry. I'll fix it."?
So until the Superpower Store opens...I will attempt to make the world a better place by sharing my delightfully daring, frequently humorous, and always truthful words.
