Assunto:  to Dale - Pra boi dormir
 
Mensagem:  Well, When I was kinda unsure, cause I am not really sure about what "historia pra boi dormir" really means, it can either be an "excuse, lie", something that someone said just to get away with something, or a kind of doubtful story, right?
I looked up for the "tall tale" and I got the following results :
A tall tale:
a story or statement that is difficult to believe because it is too exciting or interesting
"He told me a tall tale about having met some top models in a night club";

An improbable (unusual, incredible or fanciful) story;
So, I guess tall tale would match...
