Truth or Lie?

Last week we played Two Truths and a Lie – actually more like Six Truths and Three Lies – and this week it’s time to take a look at which is which.

  1. I’m over a foot shorter than my husband.

– True. Josh is 6’6” and I’m a whopping 5’4”. Stop sniggering. 5’4” is average and it’s not my fault I married a giant…well actually it is, I guess.

  1. The first car I ever hit was a Jaguar.

– True. I hit a Jaguar with a neurotic Ford Taurus. Not a bad accident but dents and yelling ensued.

  1. The first stitches I ever had were in my tongue.

– True. Never had stitches in my life until a dentist cut my tongue open with her drill when I was twenty-four. Very unpleasant. Very traumatic. Needless to say I do not like dentists.

  1. I’m a Texan by birth.

– False. I consider myself from Texas, since I spent the most time there growing up, but I was born in New Jersey.

  1. I have a hot foot and a cold foot.

– True. During a scoliosis surgery they have to cut a certain nerve that runs along the spine that regulates the temperature of your feet. I now have one hot foot and one cold foot. Since they both used to be cold all the time, I consider this an improvement.

  1. I have eaten kangaroo, alligator, crocodile, veal, octopus, squid, swordfish, and bison.

– True. My favorite part about being to so many countries is the food.

  1. I have sky-dived, bungee-jumped, and white-water rafted while here in Colorado.

– False. All I can say is: hell, no.

  1. I was a crew member on a 135 year old tall ship.

– True. My dad and I spent several years volunteering on the Elissa in Galveston.

  1. My husband proposed to me under the Century Tree at Texas A&M (our alma mater).

– False. Though the century tree is a popular spot for that sort of thing, Josh proposed in Rocky Mountain National Park at the top of Trail Ridge Road. Much better than some ancient tree, I think.

I hope you guys have enjoyed this little break from the norm. I certainly had fun with it.

Tall Tales

A couple weeks ago my friend Becca nominated me for the inspiring blogger award. The idea that I’m inspiring to anyone is still new and unsettling, but it’s very encouraging to know that there are people out there who actually pay attention to – and care about – what I write. So thanks to everyone who listens to the small things I have to say.

As part of this I’m supposed to tell you seven things about myself, but I think lists are boring so I figured I’d change it up a little and turn it into a game. We’re going to play Two Truths and a Lie. I’m going to tell you nine things about myself. Six of them will be true but three of them will be lies. If you think you can spot the tall tales, give it your best shot in the comments. All clear? Then let’s play.

  1. I’m over a foot shorter than my husband.
  2. The first car I ever hit was a Jaguar.
  3. The first stitches I ever had were in my tongue.
  4. I’m a Texan by birth.
  5. I have a hot foot and a cold foot.
  6. I have eaten kangaroo, alligator, crocodile, veal, octopus, squid, swordfish, and bison.
  7. I have sky-dived, bungee-jumped, and white-water rafted while here in Colorado.
  8. I was a crew member on a 135 year old tall ship.
  9. My husband proposed to me under the Century Tree at Texas A&M (our alma mater).

Any guesses? Stay tuned next week for the answers.
