The Truth, the Whole Truth, and Nothing but the Truth

So, time to lay my cards on the table and confess what was truth and what was not in this post.

  1.  B is the lie.  I can speak a little German, but not fluently.  I do have a degree in Economics, and I have edited papers published in academic journals.
  2. B is the lie.  I wish it weren’t.  I figured most people would know that a horror writer probably would hang out in cemeteries; so this was probably the easiest one to guess. I did catch a pass from an NFL quarterback.  I was 14 years old and he was visiting a football camp I was in.
  3. C is the lie.  I hate gardening, and can’t paint at all.  Amazingly, for as much as I write about them, I have never seen a Savoy Opera performed live.  Really a shame.  My nickname was “Tank”, because I was big but slow.
  4. C is the lie.  I dress as all kinds of weird stuff–never the same thing twice!  Yes, for as much as I criticize them, and despite the fact I’ve never voted for one at the Federal level, I’m actually registered as a Republican.  It was just what you did in my small town.  I never bothered to change it.  It does mean I get some hilarious mailings in election years. I also never learned to type or write cursive.  Pathetic for a writer, isn’t it?
  5. A is the lie.  I’m a lifelong vegetarian and teetotaler. Boring, huh?  And yes, my personality did change after I fell out of a building.  It wasn’t a head injury, though–it was just that I realized I needed to appreciate life more.

This game was a lot of fun.  Thanks to Barb Knowles of Saneteachers for nominating me for it.  I just wish I could have done better on guessing her lies!

  1. This was fun, wasn’t it. I hope others do posts like this, too. Hey I didn’t do too badly. I think I got 2 right. Falling out of a building sounds like a short story idea. But I can understand your not wanting to talk about it. Do you type with one finger? I hope not!
