archetype in oneself
My girlfriend's reassurance on the street.
The art of continually repeating a lie you fabricated and subsequently keep making an ass out of yourself.
Girl: How Much Money Do You Make?
Dude: I make 52 an hr.
Dude: Yeah Im pretty bored making 52 dollars an hr.
Dude: <reassurance> Yeah making 52 an hr is like 2 grand a week. It's pretty sweet.
