Your prompt this time is:
So, whether it's one of your favourite characters telling a slightly altered version of the truth to explain something slightly embarrassing they've done (or had given to them/lost/found/something else); perhaps someone doesn't quite believe the story someone else is telling; or even a story featuring an actual shaggy dog, give us a bunch of words that will fit into a comment (usually around 700-800 words, but for our purposes here, anything from a drabble to 1000 words would be great!).
No time limits; any fandom (or none); any genre; any character/s. Post or link your ficlet here when you're done! And if you're more graphically inclined, how about 2-3 icons with shaggy dogs on them? ;-)
