Loyal reader and all-around cool person Barb Knowles of saneteachers challenged me to a game in which I reveal 2 truths and 1 lie, five times.
It works like this: I will list 2 truths and one lie about myself–then you guess in the comments which one is the lie in each set. I love unreliable narrators, so this should be fun.
Barb also said she expects my answers to be very dark, which is the greatest compliment a horror writer can get.
a. I have a degree in Economics
b. I speak German fluently
c. I have edited papers published in academic journals.
a. I once sat in an old cemetery at midnight on Halloween looking for ghosts.
b. I am a trained helicopter pilot
c. I once caught a football from an NFL quarterback
a. My nickname when I played youth sports was “Tank”
b. I have never seen a live performance of any Gilbert and Sullivan opera
c. Apart from writing, my other hobbies are painting and gardening.
a. I am a registered Republican
b. I can neither touch-type nor write in cursive
c. Every year, I dress as the Devil for Halloween parties
a. My favorite pizza topping is pepperoni
b. I am a life-long teetotaler
c. My personality changed drastically one day after I was injured falling out of a building.
Enjoy! Put the number and letter of each statement that you think is the lie in the comments. I’ll post answers… sometime. Once I get enough comments that it’s fun.
Now, the last part of the challenge other people. The difficulty is that the two bloggers I know best, Thingy and P.M. Prescott, are on hiatus and semi-retired from blogging, respectively. So, they probably can’t do it. But on the chance that they do, I would love to see how they handle this challenge.
