Liar-liar pants on fire!

Tag! I'm it. Sioux got me. I am supposed to tell you five things about myself, one that is not true. Can you guess which one is not true? Will you play along and leave your answers in the comments section?

1. Swam with the dolphins/awesome up close experience.
2. Alaska to St. Louis in a red Mustang/ two and a half days with a week old baby.
3. Shot at/point blank range and survived.
4. Bomb threats at school for two weeks/had to evacuate daily, couldn't tell parents.
5. Won money in an adults only hula hoop contest/hula hooping on one knee.

Now I pass it on to Susan at Writing Straight from the Heart.

I would like to think that you weren't shot at close range.

Val Thevictorian said...

I'm going to pick #4, the bomb threats for two weeks. Because I think you HAVE to tell the parents. Unless you're talking about not telling your own parents so as not to upset them.

I believe I read here that you lived in Alaska, and that your mental happy place is the beach. I can see that you've survived, but don't know about the point-blank shooting. And you certainly look like you could win an adults-only hula hoop contest. Though I think an under-eighteen whippersnapper could take you.

I saw you kind of "dancing" while waiting to get your photo taken at the Writer's Guild "Procrastination" workshop (it was very subtle), so I think the hula hoop contest one is true. The others ring true, too, except for being shot at and surviving...

Although I think Val is right. Wouldn't you be required to tell the parents? Unless---again, I defer to Val---you meant YOUR parents...

I'll try #5 as the false one Linda although I am not very good at figuring these things out. Have a good nights rest and a wonderful week to come.

I am guessing the two weeks of bomb threats too.

Joanne said...

I'm a new reader here, so I'm not really sure ... I'd guess the last, because I just can't imagine hula hooping on one knee!

Lisa Ricard Claro said...

I'll guess #3. You're too sweet to get shot. The gunman would never be able to go through with it.

Umm...hula hoop contest?

Lynn said...

I'm thinking #3, don't recall any stories about that, but then again, I could have missed it.

Karen Lange said...

I'm hoping it was number 3, but thinking maybe number 4 could be in the running too...Looking forward to seeing what the right one is!

Ellie said...

I'm going for number 4. No way you could that quiet for two weeks!

Tammy said...

Am hoping BOTH 3 and 4 are lies! :-o Guess I'm guessing 3, though. Maybe the administrators at your school would want to handle informing the parents?

Judie said...

I am new to your blog, so I don't really know you, but bomb threats and NOT telling parents? That seems a little dangerous and irresponsible on the part of the administrator.

Judie said...

Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment, AND joining the gang! I am one of your gang members now, too!!

Hi Linda...I would say #3 is false. Thanks for your visit and comment today.By the way, now I see your email address. I can't click it and have the form pop up but at least I know it's there now. Thanks. Susan
