Quick Write: Is honesty always the best policy? Are there times when being honest is not a good idea?

We will begin reading “The Necklace” in class.

Quick Write: Think back to an important event, realization, life changing moment in your life.  Can you trace it back to something small?  For example: I met my fiancee through my friend who was dating her friend.  I met my friend because we both play music.  Therefore, if I never started playing guitar in 9th grade, I may not have ever met my future wife!
