You may recall that Kristine of Rescued Insanity gave me a Memetastic Award for which I shared some information about myself. To be more precise, I shared four half truths and one utter lie. Then I asked you to vote for the lie.
Here are the results:
25% of you thought that my running away with the circus and working as a clown was the lie.
Bnnnnnh. That’s a half truth. I never joined the circus but I did work briefly as a clown. Photographic evidence (although I’m not acting very clown-ey in this picture) follows.
No one thought it was a lie that a man vomited and passed out on the night he proposed to me. That is also a half-truth. My (now) husband did vomit after bringing me home from the dinner he proposed to me at but he did not pass out.
I guess the thought of marrying me was pretty scary. Somehow he found his inner courage and we’ll be celebrating 22 years of marriage this May.
37.5% of you thought it was a lie that I had swam across one of the Great Lakes.
Bnnnnh. Another half truth. I never swam across a Great Lake but I did swim across a Pretty Darn Good Lake, Cayuga, of the Finger Lakes region. The distance was over a mile of open-water swimming.
Nobody thought it was a lie that I choreographed and performed in a dancing wheelbarrow act. Ahhh, you know me so well. I now realize that wasn’t even a half truth. We were televised. You can find the footage here, and you’ll find the wheelbarrows at 16:58.
And finally, 37.5% of you were correct when you guessed I have never jumped out of an airplane strapped to an Elvis impersonator. I am terribly afraid of heights and yet I don’t know what I would avoid more, an open airplane door or an Elvis Presley impersonator. For those who love the idea, check out the Flying Elvi, a team of parachuting Presleys.
So thank you, Ladies and Gentlemen, for playing our game. Join us next time for more hijinks and puppy games.
