I haven't made any progress on the 50k/50 day challenge; between the stress of Granddaddy's passing and doing the big haul of moving the rest of the way out of our old apartment over the weekend, I can barely remember my own name, let alone write, but I'm hoping to catch up once I get home later this week.
And now for the answers to my lies... But before that, let me just say that I loved your answers, but only ONE person got it right...
I was born in Germany and did not move to the United States until I was 6. FALSE. I was born in Berlin, but my family moved back to the US when I was one.
I once stopped traffic to rescue a wild turkey out of the road. TRUE! Congrats, DL--you got me pegged! I saved the turkey and stashed it in my trunk wrapped up in a jacket until animal services arrived.
I have given mouth-to-mouth (nose) resuscitation to a bulldog and saved its life this way. FALSE. But my supervisor at work actually did, and I thought it was a great story! I'd totally do it, just FYI...
I used to compete in ballroom dancing competitions during college. FALSE. Totally. I don't know how to ballroom dance really well, but I did take a course with my brother. I like to tango!
I taught myself ventriloquism when I was 12. FALSE. I tried, but failed miserably.
I love clowns! SO, SO FALSE! I frickin' HATE clowns. Gah...
I'm a huge movie buff--you name it, I've seen it. FALSE. Quite the opposite, in fact. You name it, I probably HAVEN'T seen it. Books, though...different story.
So there we have it! I got a kick out of your answers, though. :-)
Tomorrow's post will be only my Blogfest, but when I return, I'm planning another big helpful list from The Writer magazine.
Evan, me, Granddaddy, and Grandma at our wedding, May 2008.
He was quite the little leprechaun. :-)
