words we need: the perfect lie

As far as I know, there’s no word for the powerful combination of exhilaration and relief you feel when you’ve told the perfect lie.

You’ve felt this way before. You alone had all the information surrounding the lie, your delivery was flawless, and you know no one will ever be able to prove what you said wasn’t the truth. It’s like a cross between finding your wallet when you thought you’d lost it and that scene in The Matrix when all the bullets slow down.

If there is indeed a word for this (in English or any other language) and you know what it is, let us know on Twitter or Facebook.
