The saying goes the truth is often stranger than fiction (have you seen the movie, by the way?) and that becomes immediately apparent when we start to think of the more unusual events that have transpired in our lives.
I came across this excellent post idea today on John Howell’s blog, Fiction Favourites, and he in turn
stole borrowed it from Aussa Lorens on Hacker. Ninja. Hooker. Spy. (Brilliant blog name, don’t you think?)
Here’s how it works: I’m going to tell you six things about me, but one of them is not true. See if you can guess which one. I’ll reveal the truth next week.
And if you decide to also
steal use the idea, be sure to leave me a link in the comments so I can read your as well.
I’ve been on television.
I had my first girlfriend ever (and along with that my first kiss) only in the year I turned twenty. I did get engaged in the fourth grade, though.
Once, on a hike, I almost died when I was trapped against a cliff by an approaching wildfire.
I once ate a billy goat which was a gift from a king.
My last job was as a high school principal, in spite of having no teaching qualification and only two years prior teaching experience.
I’ve made my own peanut butter.
All right. Leave your guess in the comments. Have fun!

I couldn’t possibly guess! (I haven’t read your other post yet either…)
Do they all sound like truth or do they all sound like lies? 😉
All of them were plausible. But I suspect the question in the conundrum is, “Which door would the OTHER guard tell me to go through?” 🙂
Since I hate peanut butter, and I’m a boring person, I’m going to choose 6.
How can you not…I’m sorry. Your words don’t even make sense to me 😉 Putting you down for #6.
So what’s the answer?
Patience, patience. Poor internet this weekend has upset my blogging schedule a bit, but I’ll try to do the follow-up to this one by the coming weekend. Watch this space.
I’m thinking 4 or 6. My final guess is 4 because I seriously doubt that you ate the whole billy goat as the entry implies. It’s too big to eat without help.
That’s the part you’re sceptical about? I’ll put you down for #4.
I’m torn between 3 & 4. I’m going to opt for 3 mainly because I really hope its not true, it sounds terrifying. Great list – I really don’t know which one is the lie!
I’ll put you down for #3 then. Watch this space.
