the changing of my mind

I had this post. It was all written out, and even scheduled.
But I deleted it.
It was about cheating. But I need to think on it more, I think. I couldn't manage to phrase it succinctly enough tonight. I hate it when that happens.
So I will cheat (ha ha)
and ask you.
What defines it?
how many different kinds of cheating are there? (I can think of 3, immediately).
Is it ever okay?

I know none of you are speculating this, but I will say it anyhow, because it bears saying.
This has nothing to do with my present life. Things are fabulous with MM and I. I watched a movie today that involved cheating, is all. It got me thinking...

There's cheating on a test, cheating on your partner, and cheating yourself.
None of those situations is ideal, but life definitely isn't black and white, either.
I'll wait 'til your post is up before I say anything more!

What Sybil said.

AND .. worse then cheating is lying to yourself which sort of ties into cheating ... cause many people pretend they arent when they are ... hence the lying

Its sort of like Bill Clinton insisting it was all about the definition ... yeah right

I don't know if it is ever 'ok' (however you define *that*), but cheating on your diet or on a crossword puzzle is in a totally different league than cheating on your partner for instance.. Interesting question.

Thanks for the visit to my blog. Yes! Wicked Tinkers are the best!

Hmmm, I agree with all the above. I don't think it's ever ok to deliberately cheat on a partner, but sometimes stuff happens. I suppose it's the intention beh9nd the cheating or the circumstances. I want to read your post now. And you are tagged, sos, but I want you to get all daft and creative. :D
