This is so funny. I love this piece. I have to admit that, even as a fairly-educated person, I have never even heard “bald-faced” lie. Honestly, I am not sure it makes any more sense than “bold-faced” lie. Bold-faced may even make more sense though (even though it is not the original useage) as someone would have to be very bold to lie in someone’s face. At least, that is how I took it….. But, who knows? Until I was about twenty, I also used to think that people were saying “wind shield factor” instead of “wind chill factor.” It never, ever made sense to me, although I tried to puzzle it out — was it when the snow began to freeze on the wind shield? One day someone said it, and I “heard” it and went “ooooooooooh.”
