Can You Tell Which is the Lie? ~ TAKE TWO.

Oh shit...this is so embarrassing. It wasn't until I got the e-mailed comment from my brother Eric about my truths and lies that it dawned on me what I had done: I had listed 5 truths about myself! How blonde can I be?

Sadly, this is not unusual for me. I hope that Eric will get on here and vouch for me on this...I have moments like this on a daily basis.

The only thing I could do was change the 22 hours to 20 and hope I'd get away with my serious Dumb and Dumber moment...but no. You are too smart. I was not trying to cheat, I swear. In my own defense, I think it was the post I was working on when my boss showed up suddenly, so I published it fast without thinking.

So, in an effort to redeem myself and not look like a complete idiot, I've given myself a do-over here. One is seriously a lie.

1. During childbirth the first time, I went from being dilated to 6 to actually having my baby in only 15 minutes.

2. My first romantic (wet) dream starred me and . . . . wait for it . . . . Christopher Reeves. I was maybe 11 at the time. And it was HOT. Of course all we did was kiss, but it was lying-down-in-bed kinda kissing.

3. I once endured a 12 hour layover in Brussels, Belgium. We wandered the city and then slept next to a really cool fountain most of the day.

4. On an all-day hike at Girls Camp, I found a huge mushroom (6” across) that had another mushroom growing out the top of it which had another mushroom growing out the top of it. I picked it and hauled it back to camp because I knew nobody would believe me otherwise.

5. The first concert I ever attended was Kool and the Gang. It would’ve been a hot date except my host brother insisted in coming along, damn him.

Please let #1 be a lie or I am seriously going to hate you for such a short labor!! BTW I got "spooked" too!! GAG!!

I'm going with #4. (Number 5 is running a close second, though.) As for #4, there's no way a three tiered mushroom would survive a hike in the hands of a teenager. Sorry. Not buying it!

Number 3 is my guess...

Drats blogger ate my reply.

I'm guessing number 1 is close to the truth, but tweaked, like maybe it was kid number two, not one.

and was that after having watched Somewhere In Time? He was so heartbreaking in that movie.

Sorry Rebecca,

This actually means that I WIN !!
I predicted number 6 because I knew that 1-5 were all true.

Dear God!

Christopher Reeves?


Was he really the "man of steel" in your dream? :)

I'm going to guess #2. I know he was Superman & everything, but... hmm.

Bishop Rick,

How is it you know me so well?? Do we have a psychic connection somehow?? I am curious to see if you are able to discern which of my current five things here is the lie, since one really is.
