5 Truths and 1 Lie: The Big Reveal

You all played a great game, and now it’s time to put my cards on the table.

I apologize for the sleepless nights I’m sure you struggled with awaiting this big reveal. I guess it’s the years I spent doing corporate competitive research that made me such a good liar. Maybe it’s because under every lie, there is a thread of truth or hoped for truth.

As promised yesterday, I wasn’t lying when I said I would post the links to the blogs of some other fabulous liars bloggers. If you didn’t visit the links I posted yesterday, well, I’m going to assume it’s because you were stranded on an island without internet access busy. I’ll give you through today to visit those and these (listed below) before I come knocking  on your door. OK, that’s another lie but, really, these posts are some of the most fun I’ve had on the internet in a long time!

For example, did you know that poor Angela may or may not have fallen into a septic system and had a bizarre craving for blood? (UM, ewwwww!)

I’ll bet you never would have guessed Jacqueline, over at Ambling & Rambling sports a tattoo and buys her underwear and socks with her milk and eggs. Or does she?

Who knew the always eloquent Elaine Ambrose was a barrel racing world traveler? I did, because I wasn’t falling for the debutante story she wasn’t selling, except I did. Maybe.

Did Linda rebel by changing the spelling of her name? Find out how the woman became the Carpool Goddess spent her 16th birthday here.

Jamie insists that her post would be more interesting if she had come up with 5 lies and 1 truth, but that’s a lie.

Now, seriously, before you go forward and find out my big reveal, CLICK ON THE LINKS! I’ll wait here…


OK, so I’m trusting you clicked on them and now I will expose myself  my lie:

#4. I haven’t been to Costa Rica, yet. It’s on my list and so is zip lining. Truth be told, though, a mosquito did land on my sister’s arm in Costa Rica and I assume she was sweaty, though I don’t think she went zip lining, and there may or may not have been (you know there was!) drinking involved. And, that mosquito did, in fact, drop dead after dining. Fell right off her arm, it did. I call it poetic justice.

As of this writing, there was only 1 who guessed correctly, the fabulous Lisha of LishaWrites.com. Lisha has spent her November working on her novel (as part of NaNoWriMo), otherwise I’m sure she would have stumped me with her lie. Nonetheless, be sure to stop by her blog to congratulate her. Lisha, sadly, you needed to be here in person to claim your prize, but I will keep it safe until the day your smile appears on my doorstep. Until then, you have my hearty congratulations and renewed validation we are sisters from another mother.

Oh, because so many doubted my survival skills atop Mt. Roberts, I offer this into evidence:

Almost as handy as a Swiss Army knife, that hat has traveled the world with me.

Thanks, to everyone, for playing along and sticking with me as I continue my march to the end of NaBloPoMo  November. Happy Friday, everyone!

  1. Well I was thinking maybe you had taken the TRAM up Mt. Roberts, therefore would not have required water. I love that it is true! And I adore this photo of you too. So I’m thinking a trip to Costa Rica with all of our friends is in order!
