I'd like you know that I read that article a couple of a weeks ago. Then recently, I read an article that included the phrase "little white lie" in the content.
A man, I can't remember his name, commented on the writer's use of "white" instead of just calling a lie, a lie.
My instinct, admittedly, was to shake my head, but then I remembered your article and instead, googled to phrase to learn about its origin.
Turns out, it dates back a couple hundred years when "white" equated "pure". It is also thought to relate to white and black magic.
Anyway, I wouldn't have learned about it if it hadn't been for your article. I also wouldn't have taken the time to second guess my instinctive judgement probably, either. So thanks for pushing through and getting it published!
