It's something a friend of mine used to do when she wanted a truthful answer to a particular question, sometimes serious, sometimes funny. Things like this tend to rub off, and before long, everyone you know does it. "1 2 3 honesty."
It goes like this...
Once you preface ANY question with "1 2 3 honesty" the recipient of the question has to not only answer honestly, but quickly. No thinking, just respond. Can't you see how much fun this is!!
1 2 3 honesty. Did you know that today is Abraham Lincoln's birthday?!
I did....and I might have gotten a little carried away. President cupcakes anyone?
