Last week we played Two Truths and a Lie – actually more like Six Truths and Three Lies – and this week it’s time to take a look at which is which.
- I’m over a foot shorter than my husband.
- True. Josh is 6’6” and I’m a whopping 5’4”. Stop sniggering. 5’4” is average and it’s not my fault I married a giant…well actually it is, I guess.
- The first car I ever hit was a Jaguar.
- True. I hit a Jaguar with a neurotic Ford Taurus. Not a bad accident but dents and yelling ensued.
- The first stitches I ever had were in my tongue.
- True. Never had stitches in my life until a dentist cut my tongue open with her drill when I was twenty-four. Very unpleasant. Very traumatic. Needless to say I do not like dentists.
- I’m a Texan by birth.
- False. I consider myself from Texas, since I spent the most time there growing up, but I was born in New Jersey.
- I have a hot foot and a cold foot.
- True. During a scoliosis surgery they have to cut a certain nerve that runs along the spine that regulates the temperature of your feet. I now have one hot foot and one cold foot. Since they both used to be cold all the time, I consider this an improvement.
- I have eaten kangaroo, alligator, crocodile, veal, octopus, squid, swordfish, and bison.
- True. My favorite part about being to so many countries is the food.
- I have sky-dived, bungee-jumped, and white-water rafted while here in Colorado.
- False. All I can say is: hell, no.
- I was a crew member on a 135 year old tall ship.
- True. My dad and I spent several years volunteering on the Elissa in Galveston.
- My husband proposed to me under the Century Tree at Texas A&M (our alma mater).
- False. Though the century tree is a popular spot for that sort of thing, Josh proposed in Rocky Mountain National Park at the top of Trail Ridge Road. Much better than some ancient tree, I think.
I hope you guys have enjoyed this little break from the norm. I certainly had fun with it.
