If people actually told the truth whenever someone asked them what they were thinking about, the rest of their conversation could be pretty awkward. "Whatcha thinking about?" "Oh, just how much I'd love to ram you from behind right now...smiles mildly" "...Get away from me." The phrase "a penny for your thoughts?" would definitely become a lot more deadly, amirite?

It could make the conversation both awkward and boring.

"My lunch... It was pretty good."
"Oh, yeah...same... I, um, had a nice turkey sandwich."
"...With mayo?"
"Of course."

Awkward silence
