The Truth

Two Truths and A Lie

The rules were to tell you 3 things about myself, but I had to make one of them a lie.  I had to make it difficult for you to figure out which one was the little white lie.  I must say, I think I did a pretty good job because I even fooled my Aunt!  She didn't respond on my blog because she didn't think it was fair since she knows me in real life.  Haha!  Fooled even her :)  lol

Here were the 3 things I shared:
  1. One of my favorite things to do is to take my nieces and nephews to play in the park.
  2. In high school, my friends and I stole toilet paper out of port-a-potties to tp people's houses with.
  3. While in college, a group of friends and I snuck onto a golf course in the middle of the night to go swimming for golf balls in one of the ponds.
The Truth:
  1. False.  It is true that I love spending time with my nieces and nephews for sure.  However, I do not enjoy taking them to the park.  The park scares me!  Especially when they are just learning to climb, because they climb on everything but have no control.  Most play structures are METAL.  It would be way to easy for them to fall and crack their little heads on something.  Even though I don't like taking them to the park, I know they love it so we go anyway, but it stresses me out tremendously the entire time we are there.
  2. True.  One of my nicknames in high school was the TP Queen.  My friends and I did a lot of TPing other friend's houses.  I was pretty much a goody two shoes in high school, but this is one thing we did do.  We mostly bought our the toilet paper, but hey, we were poor high school students, so yes we did sometimes try to find more toilet paper in port-a-potties.
  3. True.  We were all studying late one night, but then on a whim (for some wild reason) we decided it would be cool to go swim for golf balls.  We parked down the road, snuck onto the golf course, and jumped in a pond to try to find golf balls.  I think we found a few, but mostly, we were just having a grand ole time freezing our butts off and doing something crazy.  I shudder to think what that pond water actually looks like during daylight hours.
So there you have it.  While I might have been a goody two shoes (and still am), I am not opposed to doing crazy things and having a good time.  I've never needed alcohol or drugs to be adventurous, crazy, and have a good time.

    1. Have you ever taken a two year old to the park? I always have to stand RIGHT behind them when they are climbing because it means NOTHING to them to let go. Then take two or three little ones at once and omgoodness, it is an accident waiting to happen!

  2. That's very understandable, actually, but still the last "false" I had expected.
    Let's just not get too close to those ponds during daylight ;)

  4. Okay, you got me good!!!!! Even though you used trickery in this game!!!! Because you do still take the kids to the park. Understand the stress though as it is a BIG concern to me about sending the grandkids home in the same shape that we got them in!!!!! Living on the farm, things happen!!! Knock on wood, nothing bad so far!!!!! Taking both to see FROZEN this week by myself. Makes me worry about, what if one has to go to the bathroom, what do I do with both of them so I don't loose one and what if one has to go during the movie, do I leave one? A lot of stress and may not happen again! DVD night only or one at a time!!! We'll see how it goes!! And stealing tp, who would have thought that!!!! But knew I remembered hearing the golf pond story!!! Yeah me on that anyway!!! Love you lots!!! This was fun!! Auntie

    1. Funny :) No trickery, just a lie! haha! Exactly, there can be no trips to the ER on my shift watching the kids! As for taking the kids to the movie... They both have to make the trip to the bathroom. There is no way I would leave one or the other at any point in time unless someone else was with me. Inevitably, one of them WILL have to go to the bathroom during the movie. At least that has been MY experience! We are taking Eli and Steven to see FROZEN this weekend too.

  5. You tricked us by only changing one part of the story so we were focused on loving spending time with you niece and nephew and not the park part. Tricky! I thought #3 was the lie. ;)

  6. Oh, I would never leave one at this point!! I couldn't handle the stress of it! But it's just stressful trying to figure out what to do, what not to do, and one is 5, is he old enough????????????? Oh, the dilemma of it all!!!!!! Hope that we all enjoy the movie!!! Suppose to be good!!!
