The Moment of Truth



Here are the answers that you have all been waiting for……how well have you guessed my truths and my lies?!  Here is a hint.   ZERO people got them all right!  And that includes 2 of my close relatives.

#1.  b) The lie was that my confirmation name was Elizabeth.  It is Augusta.   I DID have an imaginary friend named Deenie.  It was hard to come up with a spelling of her name as I didn’t know how to spell when she was my friend.  I am scared of thunder and lightening.  Yes.  Yes I am.

#2  English IS my first language.  So a) is the lie.  I am learning the kichwa language and I do drop the f bomb too frequently.  I’m working on that, though.  For real.

#3 c) is the lie.  I am 5’1 1/2″ but I round up to 5’2″.  I sing tenor……I can’t hit the alto high notes at all.  I have trouble hitting the tenor high notes, too, hence I probably am a baritone.  I stand with the men in the choir. Oh and I love broccoli.

#4 c) is the lie.  I do have 4 children, I did read GoT in less than 3 days so was very sleep-deprived.  Guinea pig, called cuy in kichwa and Spanish, is a delicacy in Ecuador. Also referred to as the Andean rabbit.  I have eaten it on a few occasions.  I do NOT like to see the head.  Nor do I like to see the head of fish when I eat fish, for that matter.  Cuy is good and tastes a little like chicken (no it doesn’t but people always say that about wild animals, right?)

#5 b) Unfortunately I have never been a contestant on Wheel of Fortune, which doesn’t stop me from screaming the answers at the TV.  I was going to join the Air Force after college and regret not having done so, but then I wouldn’t have my kids so good decision not to go.  And I play those 3 instruments, but none very well.


So how did you do?  A bunch of you just missed one or two.  For others, “Hi, my name is Barb and I’m an alcoholic.”  Oh oops.  Wrong post.  But some of you got most a lot wrong.

I hope you had fun!  I had a blast writing it, reading your answers, and completing them on other people’s blogs, as well.  Just make a 2 truths/1 lie post like this if you want to.  I couldn’t nominate everyone that I would have liked to, so just write one and have fun.

Thanks, guys!

  1. Eeks! I missed all that and only to find out you have revealed the answers. Looks like a fun game though, Barb. It’s enlightening to know that you have an imaginary friend called Deenie! 😀

    By my count I think I got 2 out of 5 right. I’ll take it. I kinda cheated on the Wheel of Fortune one because I saw your daughter didn’t pick it as a lie and thought it HAD to be true. Nope…

  3. This was a lot of fun–even though I did so badly! I’ll have my “answer key” up shortly.

    It was fun to find out the real answers! I have to admit, the guinea pig answer surprised me, but that’s because I didn’t think about what you may have eaten when traveling to a foreign country. They’re not found too often on the menu in the USA!

      Oh but I ate them here. I teach English as a New Language, and most of my students are Latino, and most of those are Ecuadorian. So families bring cuy to school dinners and serve them at parties. I didn’t expect most people to know that. It was my tricky one 😉

        Oh, sorry, I missed that! Still, you’re in a position to try new foods. I’m not sure if I would have been brave enough to eat guinea pig, but then, in terms of food, I’m pretty wimpy.

        I’m fairly brave about food, but I grew up with an Irish grandmother who would give us sardine and peanut butter sandwiches. Which still seem normal to me. You eat what you grow up eating. So I don’t mind trying things from other cultures. EXCEPT I had squid once and YUCK.
