2 Truths, 1 Lie

I’ve been nominated by Paul to reveal 2 truths and 1 lie, five times. So if my math is correct, that’s 23 truths and 14 lies. I just copied and pasted those two sentences from Paul so no accusations of plagiarism please.  OH NO!!  Paul’s math is definitely not correct and he was being funny and I was being lazy!  That’s 10 truths and 5 lies.  Phew!

Soooooo, the way this works is that I’m going to tell you some “facts” about myself and you have to guess which one is the lie.  Please write your guesses in the comments below and don’t cheat by looking at other people’s answers because they might be wrong.  Just sayin’. Here goes….


a. I had an imaginary friend named Deenie.

b. My confirmation name is Elizabeth.

c. I’m scared of thunder and lightening.


a. English is not my first language.

b. I’m learning kichwa.

c. I say f#@% way too much.


a.  I sing tenor but am really a baritone.

b. My favorite food is broccoli.

c. I’m 5’3″ tall.


a. I have 4 children.

b. I read A Game of Thrones in less than 3 days.

c. I’ve never eaten guinea pig.


a. I took the Air Force qualifying test to become an officer in the US Air Force upon graduating from college.

b. I’ve been a contestant on Wheel of Fortune.

c. I play the piano, guitar and viola.

Okie, dokie.  Please write your answers in the comments section with the number and letter of each LIE.  I will wait a couple of days to post the answers and  you can see how well you know me.  Or what a good guesser you are.  And I get to see if the readers who know me in real life and are friends of mine will know all the answers.

Now, the last part is that I have to nominate people.  I don’t usually participate in these type of games, so if you are named below, please don’t feel obligated.  It’s fun though, and I’ll blame Paul if you disagree.

    This reminds me of a corporate meeting icebreaker. You are supposed to find out interesting things about the other people to feel more comfortable. I always think they really want to know who is a good liar. Ha ha

      Hahaha that’s PERFECT! So can you figure out my lies? Although with one question, it would be easier if you saw me standing, lol. If you haven’t already participated, I hope you will. Thank you for your hysterical comment.

      It’s hard because I picked a lot of things that most people wouldn’t know. My daughter missed a couple! But I’m not letting the cat out of the bag until Tuesday. Thank you SO MUCH for playing. As to the answers? My lips are sealed….

    Here are my choices and reasoning!
    1. a) Imaginary friend named Deenie, which is short for Houdini–who is always disappearing, not a good quality in an imaginary friend, therefore I believe it is false.
    2. c) You are a teacher and teachers never say f*&% and are good at controlling their swears.
    3. a) If you are a baritone why would you sing tenor (I’ll admit I know nothing about singing, except for I’m bad at it lol) something is fishy there!
    4. c) Toss up between Game of Thrones and Guinea pig–because both seem pretty crazy. I think you could read Game of Thrones that fast because you are a teacher and you have posted about books, therefore I believe you have eaten a guinea pig. Someone had to be the Guinea Pig to try the Guinea Pig which must’ve been interesting.
    5. a) You seem like a gentle person and I cannot picture you in an air-fight–therefore this was my choice.

    Hope I win lol!
