Hey! Look over there--is that a bandwagon?

Jump! Thud.

Okay, having landed on the bandwagon, I will commence to offering you Two Truths and a Lie (following in the footsteps of -R-, LSass, etc.), with a prize to be awarded to the winner, chosen randomly from everyone who guesses correctly which of the following three statements is NOT true. Got it? Good.

  1. While watching a national parachuting contest as a child, I was landed on by an errant parachuter, and knocked to the ground.
  2. I once mimed an entire performance of a musical after losing my voice.
  3. In the fourth grade, I won the school talent show performing a tap-dancing number.

Okay--guess away!

(Prize to be awarded on Monday.)

#1. I would be more apt to believe that you, as a parachuter, hit a bystander. :)

I am totally thinking up truths and lies to steal this idea myself, too. I'll see you on the bandwagon by the end of the day. :-) Guess this means I have to come up with a prize, though. I'd look like an ass if I were the only one doing this and not rewarding people!

Anyway, I am going to say #3 is the lie, even though I cannot believe you weren't as multi-talented in fourth grade as you are now. #1 is too absurd not to be true.

-R- said...

I also think #3 is the lie. But I was also seriously considering #1. It's a close call!

Um...I think Stefanie just accidentally inadvertently called me a name. I'm giving a non-tangible prize...It's the thought that counts, right?

stefanie said...

Gah! No, 3Cs; I swear I didn't see your post before I posted there. I am sure you're not an ass. Really. :-)

Stefanie - Oh, I know...It was very ironic timing and I couldn't resist saying something. Oh, and hi Liz...here I am using someone else's comments to carry on a conversation again! :)

I desperately hope that #1 is true and that you have video.

I'm going to go with #2, simply because it has not yet been picked!

Paisley said...

The lie is #2! It's too obvious to be true. Right? Right?

ekaterin said...

I know the answer!!! But I can't tell.....

Noelle said...

I'm going with #3, because I closed my eyes and opened them and it was the first one I saw.

chickadee said...

#2 is the one I instantly believed, so I'm going to say that's the lie. :D

Mousse said...

I'm going with Number 2, too...tee.

ekaterin said...

I did guess wrong at first...
Did you realize, Liz, that we missed an opportunity to boggle at the karmic weirdness that is the Universe the other night? **btw, loved the whole 'reached for ice cream and the universe handed you crap' story...lol
Think about where my oldest daughter was that night.... :)

I have to go with #2. Only because I can't picture doing it myself. :)
