So, last Wednesday, we played this game...
I told you six lies and one truth, and everyone got to guess what the true answer was. I also threw in a bonus lie, which pretty much everyone guessed. I am NOT an accomplished liar. At least not in person. On paper though, I'm a little better.
As promised, here are the answers!
1.) I broke my foot in high school when I was run down in a crosswalk.
FALSE: This is a tricky one, and caught most of my family. I broke my foot the same year I got run over, but the two did not happen at the same time. I actually broke my foot missing a step on the stairs. Lamest. Injury. Ever.
2.) Once while I was donating plasma, I fainted dead away. They had to send me home.
FALSE: I did a regular plasma-donating stint about five years ago, and while I did develop some vitamin deficiencies, I never fainted.
3.) For a short time, I roomed with a girl who was a stripper.
FALSE: She was a table dancer. (and a lovely, sweet girl) In fact she told me her favorite part of the job was that she didn't have to strip, which I agreed was a definite perk.
4.) My favorite food is tacos.
FALSE: Tacos are one of my husband's favorites. My favorite food is pasta, specifically macaroni and cheese. I also adore soup.
5.) My husband and I became friends while I was volunteering as a roadie for his local band.
TRUE: Two of my good friends were the lead guitarists/singers of the group. (My husband was the bass player). I loved music, so it seemed like a good idea to hang out with them a lot. I wasn't a particularly good roadie, but I did help pack equipment and roll cables.
6.) I beat my husband at Scrabble on a regular basis, which makes him quite amusingly frustrated.
FALSE: I have NEVER, not ONCE beaten my husband at Scrabble. Never. And he's not even a writer, he's a math geek. Who beats me and everyone else on a regular basis. Stupid game. *growls*
7.) I used to have a boa constrictor as a pet. His name was Sandy.
FALSE: I wanted a boa constrictor after my garter snake, named Sandy, died. My mom said I couldn't have any snake that wouldn't fit under her foot.
How did you do?
Now, normally I would pick a certain number of people to pass this on to, but since I had SO much fun with this, I'm doing something different.
If you are a follower of this blog, you automatically get this award. And if you leave a link in the comments to your various lies, I will go and guess which is the truth. That way, everyone can play.
Go forth and deceive!
