Definition of HONESTLY
Hopefully, you read through the definition from Merriam-Webster’s. Why do people feel the need to start off a sentence by saying “Honestly,……”? Every time I hear this, I wonder if the person speaking has not been honest up to that point in the conversation. My daughter, the psych major at IU, tells me that what usually follows when someone starts with “Honestly……” is probably going to follow with some sort of lie. Now it may be a bold-faced lie, or it could be a white lie. Either way, I never get past the “Honestly” portion.
