Thornton P. Knowles on Having "Polyphobia."

As a compulsive liar--I lie even when I don't have to--I'm deathly afraid of the polygraph. If I merely walk past one, the instrument will turn itself on and starts registering deception. Once, when actually hooked up to a lie detector, the examiner ended up soaked in polygraph ink. Confronted with all that untruth, the poor instrument simply exploded. The nonplused examiner looked at me and said, "You must be a writer."

    1. Sorry... that was a rather lame attempt at a joke. My head is so clogged-up I guess I'm a wee bit hard of thinking. Tell old Thornton P that I still adore his rapier wit!
