Did You Guess?

Ok, wonderful readers. Some of you participated in my challenge to discover which of 6 statements about me is a lie. If you missed those posts, you can still play along here, but you will have fewer answers to choose from.  🙂

I’m going to start sharing some of the answers for the 5 truths and a lie. You know you’re excited. There weren’t a lot of people who played, but those who did were fairly convinced of their answers, so let me give you the count first.

#6:   I climbed the Great Wall.

Four people think this is a lie.

#5:   I volunteered to assist with a six week quilting class.

While no one actually selected this as a first choice, one person thought this might be it if her first choice is incorrect.

#4:  I attended a Klingon convention in costume.

Two people think this is the lie. And another person was torn between this one and #3.

#3:  I had lunch with Sergei Khrushchev.

1 person guessed this one, and one person was torn between this one and #4.

2. I got married in a Chinese restaurant.

This had the most votes for being the lie. Six people voted for this one. That means six people think this is a lie! BUT THEY ARE WRONG!  David and I were married at a Chinese restaurant in Saginaw, Michigan. It was one of our favorite restaurants, which sadly, has closed since our wedding.

1. I broke my toe in Taipei.

No one voted for this one. And with good reason. It is true. I also twisted my ankle and banged up my knee, which led ultimately to the knee replacement surgery I had a couple of years ago.

For the other nine of you, stay tuned. I will reveal more tomorrow.  🙂

BONUS

A few wedding pictures if you’re interested.  🙂

What Really Happened in My 40’s

BACKGROUND

I read a blog post yesterday, “One of These Things Will Not Set You Free,” In it, Aussa Lorens told about six interesting (and sometimes, downright scary) things that happened in her life. Except one of them is not true. And that’s when the fun starts. Well, actually just reading her post is fun. But in the comments, everyone tries to guess which of the six statements is not true. Some people actually go through the items one by one to discuss the probability and their logic about the likelihood of such events.

She also invited her readers to do a similar post and then include it in her comments. While I haven’t had quite the number of off-the-wall experiences she’s had, I have done some unusual things. The hardest part of my list making was writing the lie. I found it a little hard to find something what wasn’t either too far out there or too mundane. But I think I’ve got it now.

THE GAME

My 40’s were a great decade, so I focused on things that happened (or didn’t happen) during that time. If you want to get the full experience, see if you can figure out which of the six things I did not really do, and post your guess in the comments.

I will post the correct answer next week (Monday or Tuesday).

Do a post of your own, and post it in my comment section, so I (and my readers) can play.
