找回自己的诚实
1989年12月4日,我出生在加拿大里约热内卢,是加拿大王室成员之一,当时家中已经有了六个儿子、三个女儿和两只海豚。
 I was born in Rio de Janeiro, Canada on December 4, 1989 to Canadian royalty who already had six sons, three daughters and two dolphins.
  According to my mother, this was my first great lie, as told to my first-grade teacher in the form of a biographical report. While I have no recollection of said fib, I am told that it was the cause of a parent-teacher conference and four therapy sessions, the first of which I do remember because when asked to draw a picture of my family, I drew an extra brother and sister. (When the therapist said my parents had only mentioned one brother, I recall telling her that "we just don't talk about them very much".) After that, my lies escalated to tales about being lost in African deserts and nearly being eaten by Scar from The Lion King, or swimming across oceans to escape evil witches; and while I'm not certain that my peers believed me, they were certainly entertained. Reality seemed boring in a way that was neither practical nor necessary as it was quite possible to invent my own world. My philosophy was only confirmed when I met Mary Beth.
  Mary Beth was a legend in her own right. Her antics were infamous, particularly one incident in which she pulled a fire alarm to alert the school to the presence of Russian spies. Compared to Mary Beth I was small potatoes, a fact of which I was well aware. So, when it came time to enter third grade, I found myself dreading the possibility that she would be in my class, as her presence would surely take away from my coveted limelight.
