I immediately start singing the Tool song Intolerance in my head when I hear the words, “Lie, cheat, and steal” together, because Tool is permanently lodged in my subconscious after listening to them a lot in high school. In general, I’m not a liar, cheater (except at board games) or thief, but I do enjoy hearing stories about other people who are. If you’re also a vicarious cheater and thief, or if you want to learn how to be a better liar, go to Happy Ending tonight. It’s another installment of their “How I Learned” reading series, and people will be sharing their adventures of how they learned to lie, cheat, and steal. And Happy Ending usually has good DJs, so you can spend your entire night in their poorly lit basement.
