Liar! Liar! Get back, witch! I'm not a witch, I'm your wife!


Good gravy. Bald-faced liar? Me? Oh, all right (thanks a heap, Christa). Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to determine which of the four statements below are true and which are flat-out fibs.

I have, in all honesty

1. Achieved the summit of Mt. Vesuvius and the main temple at Chichen Itza. In the rain, both places.

2. Eaten something that looked like eyeballs in a Japanese ryokan. Woke up face-to-face with a deer, which might have been a god.

3. Introduced my U.S. Congressional representative at a fancy dinner event, only to discover that he was shorter than (or short as) me and so ended up inadvertently proving that hobbits have infiltrated my government.

4. Survived a car wreck with a Winnebago driven by a drunk guy who fled the scene which just happened to be right in front of a fire station.

5. Changed clothes in front of an audience of thousands.

6. Worn underwear that was purchased from a vending machine.

7. Broken my nose on a ceiling fan.

The lack of comma in number 4 was intentional, 'cause it sounds better. Suck it, Strunk & White.

Also, I'm supposed to tag other blogs and/or author sites for ongoing hijinks. But, honestly, since I'm pretty much the only person who reads this blog, I'll spare myself the silliness.

Oh my goodness those are all so out there that I swear I can't even narrow them down to a possible 4. I'm going with changing clothes in front of an audience of thousands and eaten something that looked like eyeballs.

How wrong am I?

PS, lol my word verification is TURIN. How cool is that?

You're half right, Christa. It was only hundreds. (Stage directions called for me to change out of a bridemaid's dress into a nightgown and somehow keep the show PG. Hooray for contortionism!)

But those things really did look like eyeballs. I have pics somewhere.
