front revisited

What MckMama said:
after visiting Kenya, seeing and experiencing what I did, suddenly putting up a clean, orderly house front isn't so important to me anymore

Here they are titled:

And here's some of the pics in numerical order:

Wait...what? How'd that get in there? A coincidence? Maybe. A bugger of one if it is. However, if what MckMama said about the lego picture is accurate, the pictures she uses to show how much she doesn't care about a clean and tidy house are actually from.....before Colorado and Kenya. Does it matter? Not really, but why imply this is the condition of the house from Friday morning? Why not, I dunno, actually take pictures of the house from Friday morning?

Some may argue it's splitting hairs but for others, it's just another example of not quite lying, but not being truthful, aka "spinning" on a blog where the writer boasts honesty, openness and "boldness".

Also, found this and wanted to share. Spin, according to Wiki:
While traditional public relations may also rely on creative presentation of the facts, "spin" often, though not always, implies disingenuous, deceptive and/or highly manipulative tactics.

Total credit goes to Jennifer (not McKinney). Great catch.
