Around the Kitchen Table – Let’s Play Two Truths and a Lie

Many of you might be familiar with the popular icebreaker game – Two Truths and a Lie. It’s a pretty simple game. Each party gets a turn to tell the audience two truths and one lie about themself. The two truths and one lie can be randomly recited in any order, e.g., truth, lie, truth or any combination. When each party has taken a turn, everyone joins in on trying to guess the lie.

Obviously, this will work a little different in The Lounge as we are in a virtual environment, but we thought it was worth trying it at IW. So please join in and share a couple of truths and one lie about yourself and check back daily to guess the lies of your fellow IW posters!

    This is so funny! We did this last night in my church’s small group :) Only we did two lies and one truth.

    Here goes…..
    As a child I had a phobia of dogs.
    I’m distantly related to Tony Danza.
    My secret desire is to be an Irish Step Dancer.

  2. Lizabeth says

    Love this idea!! (No cheating from those of you who I speak to on a regular basis :)!)

    1- I have a boyfriend
    2- I use Christmas scented Febreeze in my bathroom
    3- I have 3 more weeks of class before being done for 3 months

    Sammy, I think the lie is your childhood phobia!

  3. Samantha@IW says

    Hmmm…..
    Lizabeth:
    I think the lie is the Christmas Febreeze- I’m addicted to the stuff, surely if there were a Christmas scent I would know LOL.

  4. Lizabeth says

    Sam, you are wrong– its actually called Apple Spice and Delight and it smells like Christmas. Which is weird when its sunny outside, but it makes my Men’s room smell wonderful (I have 2 bathrooms in my house and I put a “Men” sign on my spare bathroom :). Makes it great for when I have company since people always think its funny.)

  5. Anya@IW says

    Two lies are actually easier to come up with for some reason!

    I am working on my two truths. I have LOADS of ideas for lies!

    I’ll wait to weigh in on Samantha and Lizabeth’s until we get a few more. I think I have good guesses though! :-)

  6. Pam@IW says

    Hi everyone.

    I have a Fellowship from Rutgers University.

    -I am a member of Toastmasters and am frequently complimented on my public speaking ability.

    -I got my first full-time job right out of high school and have been with the same employer ever since – more than twenty years.

    -I am a procrastinator and always put everything off to the last minute.

  9. Pam says

    Hi Kimmie,

    Thanks for playing. I am not going to reveal yet. LOL Although we could probably post several times. I have lots of lies. :)

    I am going to wait awhile before I guess everyone’s lies.

  10. Darlene says

    I love this idea!!
    1)I have an angel wings tattoo
    2)I come from a very large family
    3)I have an Accounting Degree
    I won’t guess on Liz’s for I think I know the answer. For Samatha I guess #3. Pam I’m going to guess #3 for you and Kimmie I’ll #3 for you too!! So for all of you I guessed it’s #3.

  11. kimmie says

    why? don’t i seem like the *little red convertible* type? i’m a blond…oh that was a lie…i AM but only cause i pay for it! ;)

  12. Lily@IW says

    I once sang with Barry Manilow

    I studied ballet for years but ended up being too short

    I used to carry a coffee cup to meetings that read “piss me off pay the consequences”

  13. Theresa says

    I played percusssion school

    I sang country tunes with John Corbett at Disney.

    I assisted my sister as she went into labor during rush hour traffic.

  14. Lily@IW says

    These posts have my curiosity up. I’m waiting a little while and guess several at once or else I’ll get confused since theses statements are so random. It’ll be interesting to see what’s what. :)

  15. Ann@IW says

    OK, I JUST played this at a department meeting last month AND I wrote “I’ve written for http://www.imperfectwomen.com” as one of my surprising truths! Darn! I just gave one away. I’ll have to think of another…

    At 18, I entered a convent, but backed out within a year.
    I can windsurf.
    Paul Newman apologized to me.

  16. Cella@IW says

    1.) I have been known to want to keep things “new” that I’ve purchased or was gifted for so long that they’ve gone out of style before I could wear/use them. (I still have several Hello Kitty items from a 1970’s Christmas stocking that are still in their original wrappers.)

    2.) I’ve lived in 5 states throughout my life, one of them twice, one of them three times now…totalling 8 major moves in my adult life.

    3.) I am the proud recipient of a major award in the entertainment field.

  17. I'd rather poke my eye out... says

    1) I have a master’s degree in HR
    2) I am a military spouse
    3) I have 2 children under the age of 2

    GO FISH!

  18. Jasmin says

    My turn!

    1. I’ve stolen a Bible.

    2. I’ve qualified for MENSA.

    3. I’ve met Barack Obama.

    My guesses:

    Samantha’s lie: desire to be a step dancer
    Lizabeth’s: the boyfriend (I promise I didn’t cheat on facebook, this is a completely honest guess!)
    Pam’s: partying until the sun came up
    Kimmy’s: 1 child
    Anya: Toastmasters
    Darlene: accounting degree
    Lily: ballet
    Theresa: percussion
    Ann: windsurfing
    Cella: 5 states
    Jen: redhead
    I’d rather…: 2 kids

    I wonder how many I’ll get right?

  19. Nancy@IW says

    I’m a cradle Catholic.

    I danced and sang on stage in my lingerie in front of an audience.

    I have three tattoos.

  20. I'd rather poke my eye out... says

    Jasmin- I do have 2 kids under 2- eek! haha. My lie is that my master’s is in Education/Counseling not HR. Big lie right?! I’m boring!!! :)

  21. CincyMom says

    This is kind of fun! Thanks for getting me out of Gosselin world!

    1. I love watching 90210 (the original) re-runs.
    2. When I was little, I used to dance in front of a fancy building by my house with friends and put on fake performances of “Annie”.
    3. I went through lapband surgery last year.

  22. Sue says

    1. I got married in Las Vegas by an Elvis impersonator.

    2. Joan Rivers personally gave me a bee pin from her QVC jewelry line, telling me it was a symbol of good luck.

    3. I love all types of cheese, cheddar being my favorite.

    I’m guessing:

    Samantha – My secret desire is to be an Irish Step Dancer.

    Lizbeth – I have a boyfriend (I picked it only because it’s the most normal!)

    Pam – I have a Fellowship from Rutgers University

    Kimmie – i have one child

    Anya – I am a member of Toastmasters and am frequently complimented on my public speaking ability

    Darlene – I come from a very large family

    Lily – SANG sang or pulled up from the audience? either way I’m guessing I once sang with Barry Manilow

    Theresa – I assisted my sister as she went into labor during rush hour traffic

    Ann – I can windsurf.

    Cella – I have been known to want to keep things “new” that I’ve purchased or was gifted for so long that they’ve gone out of style before I could wear/use them. (I still have several Hello Kitty items from a 1970’s Christmas stocking that are still in their original wrappers.)

    Jen – I am a redhead

    Poke – I have 2 children under the age of 2 (Ahhhh! – poke I guessed this before I read your answer. My kids are 18 months apart – I swear it’s just like having twins (and people think they are twins too because they are in a lot of activities together.)

    Jasmin – I’ve qualified for MENSA (because really, who hasn’t stolen a Bible??? lol)

    Nancy – I have three tattoos

    CincyMom – When I was little, I used to dance in front of a fancy building by my house with friends and put on fake performances of “Annie”

    These are pure shot in the dark guesses!

  23. CraftyMomof3 says

    Ahhh..I guess I wasn’t original enough with my lie. I’ll be back later with good ones.

    And Sue just took all my answers! Oh well. Great minds think alike! :)

  26. Lizabeth says

    I agree with Kimmie’s answers though Nancy’s singing in lingerie option is a bit too crazy to be a lie… it sounds like that might be the truth!

    You guys are WRONG about me, though. My lie was not that I have a boyfriend cause that is not a lie. It’s actually part of the reason I’ve not been on here much lately :). Things are going well and its exciting, but the new relationship is also sucking up all my extra time. I’m working on balancing things better though so I can be back around more often!

  27. Ann@IW says

    My guesses at your lies (and my thinking):

    Sam – Tony Danza (how could I not know this?)
    Lizbeth – 3 months off (you’re NEVER off)

    Pam – Rutgers? No, I believe that. Let me think…

    kimmie- one child (I’m guessing more)

    Anya – procrastinator (you update that Gosselin chatter too regularly!)

    Darlene –angel wings tattoo (I think you avoid needles because you’ve had so many?)

    Lily – Barry Manilow (though I am hoping it’s true, and it was Copacabana)

    Theresa – percussion (I think you play something, but not percussion. Those of us who have NO talent/skill don’t even know the word percussion.)

    Cella – 5 states (process of elimination–my mom does that gift thing, and I picture you with an Emmy! :))
    Jen – I am a redhead (sheer guesswork!)
    I’d rather poke – I just deleted my wrong guess (kids) because I found your confession

    Jasmin – Barack Obama (though I expect to vote for you for President someday)
    Nancy – lingerie dance (though I can picture you raising money for a charity doing this…)
    cincymom – lapband surgery (you are probably one of those magical skinny people who eat and eat and never gain weight, like my husband and kids)

    Sue- cheese (no one likes all types, do they? not those stinky ones?)

  28. Theresa says

    Congrats Liz! I hope he’s a good catch!

    Sue, you are correct! I never assisted my sister in any of her deliveries, in traffic or at the hospital.

    I used to play percussion in school. Quit in high school.

    I was in Disney a few years back and at one of our media events/parties Jon Corbett dropped by. He was promoting his new cd…a country cd….and we sang a few tunes when he was on our show the next morning. Very nice guy. Bo was not with him. We asked why. He said she was doing something with her horses.

    Samantha, are you a distant relative of Tony? I was going to write for one of my truths…Tony Danza cried on my shoulder. He was in town for the premiere of Angels in the Outfield. I was working with Children’s Hospital on a meet and greet for them with Tony and Taylor Negron. What a great day with the kids! The moms were all eager to take their pics with them, and the kids were just over the top. He sang a bit with them, and it was just one of the most rewarding days of my career. When we were leaving and I was escorting him to his limo, he broke down. He put his head on my shoulder and just balled! I looked at the hospital’s PR gal who was looking at me wide-eyed with a “what is she going to do” look. I put my arm around him and just said, “you made these kids and their families’ day. You put joy in their lives today. Pray for them and when you get home hug your kids a bit harder”.

    alrighty then…changing my one for darlene based on her hint. lol

  30. Ann@IW says

    I love the Tony Danza story, partly because I like Tony Danza and always have. Can I share something I know about Tony Danza? I have a niece who started teaching at an inner-city school this year in Philadelphia. She attended orientation meetings for new hires in August. Tony Danza was in her group (she didn’t really know who he was…she’s too young to remmeber him!) He is teaching at an inner-city Philly high School (English) this year because it has been a dream of his (and he is filming a documentary about the experience.) Neat, huh?

  31. Eydie says

    Tony Danza is going to be IW’s resident hero, what with all the great stories you ladies are sharing :)

    I can’t figure out the lies, although Jasmin, I can imagine you really qualifying for MENSA…

    Here are mine:
    * I slightly know Oscar award-winner Glen Hansard, the guy in Once who won “Best Song.”
    * I learned that there was no Santa when, for a writing assignment, our third-grade class had to answer the first-graders’ Christmas letters as if we were elves–and when I raised my hand and asked, “Why don’t we just send the letters to Santa himself,” the look of regret on my dear teacher’s face was pretty palpable.
    * I have an advanced degree in Psychology, so I can diagnose TV reality stars’ disorders, and their children’s, too.

  32. Lily@IW says

    Here’s my guesses
    Sam – Irish Step Dancer
    Elizabeth you told yours fast. :-
    Kimmie – teaching degree – I hope you and your little one cruise all over in a little red convertible
    I know Pam’s so I won’t guesse.
    Anya – I have no problem believing that you would be a member of toastmasters, but I think you’re lying.
    Darlene, I don’t think you have angel wings tattoo
    Theresa – I hope you’re lying about assisting your sister in rush-hour, but I agree w/Ann. You owe us a story if it’s true.
    Cella – living in 5 states
    Jen(CraftyMomof3) – married at 19
    I’d rather Poke My Eye out – you already told too, but I want to congratulate you on your two little ones. How sweet and what a handful that must be. One of each?
    Jasmin – meeting Pres Obama
    Nancy, Were you doing Rocky Horror in your underwear? I’m guessing it’s a lie you have 3 tattoos
    Cincymom – I went through lapband surgery last year. (My little one loves the song from Annie)
    Sue – I’m guessing you didn’t get married by an Elvis impersonator

    I’m hoping that some of the lies are truths and I want to hear some of them. Sue, I do want to hear about your wedding if you got married by Elvis.

    Theresa, I saw you revealed after I already guessed. That story about Tony Danza is so sweet. It’s nice to know he was so touched by the event. I always thought he was a cutie and liked how he talked about grandson when I saw his talk show a couple of times

    I never studied the ballet. I’m such a klutz, I’m sure it would have helped if I did.

    I sang “once” w/Barry Manilow. Yes, Sue I got pulled out of the audience, one of my 15 minutes :). It was a long time ago, I was about 22. At the time, my voice was in great shape (high soprano here) and I actually had to hold back at the end not to go over him. I was a huge fan and thrilled when he walked me off that he asked me if I was a professional. A lady in the audience had illegally taped it and got my address to send it to me. Another lady had taken a roll of film and got my address to mail them to, I got some great pics of it. (aren’t people nice) The t-shirt he signed is my cedar chest. I listened to him all through hayday when I was in highschool. Can’t stereotype me though, I like lots of kinds of music and I still love Manilow. :)

  33. Jen(CraftyMomof3) says

    My lie was the redhead. I have been 5’5 since I was 12 and I did get married at 19.
    Here’s better ones:
    I lived in Rhode Island for 12 years.
    I have two sisters.
    I used to live down the street from a famous Saturday Night Live Player’s mom.

  34. Nancy@IW says

    Well – Sue was correct. I do not have three tattoos! LMAO!

    I was in the musical “Best Little Whorehouse in Texas” and played Ruby! I wore a red wig and wore red nighties! LOL!

  35. Sue says

    Lily – I used to do entertainment for corporate events, and my boss had an interesting story about working with Barry Manilow. He actually had in his rider that no women were allowed during his sound check, and his wife was a huge fan and was pissed she couldn’t see it! I know he would sometimes have a few girl back up singers, but mostly he was surrounded by men. Apparently, he wasn’t comfortable with his adoring female fans lol!

    I have a friend who still loves Barry too!

  36. Ann@IW says

    Paula,

    * I have an advanced degree in Psychology, so I can diagnose TV reality stars’ disorders, and their children’s, too.

    LMAO!

    You are too young to have taught for 35 years!

  37. Lily@IW says

    I skipped Eydie, sorry, I was laughing at what you wrote and forgot. :) I’m going w/the advanced psychology degree. You are so funny. :)
    Paula – I taught school for 35 years.
    Jen(CraftyMomof3) – Living in Rhode Island 12 years

    Sue, That’s interesting tidbit about Barry, I’m surprised he was so obvious. He has such a big female fanbase too. Oh, the price of fame. :)

  38. Jen(CraftyMomof3) says

    Eydie-I slightly know Oscar award-winner Glen Hansard, the guy in Once who won “Best Song.”
    Paula-I love riding roller coasters

  39. kimmie says

    Kimmie – teaching degree – I hope you and your little one cruise all over in a little red convertible

    my little one is 22 and he would so be borrowing that little red convertible all.the.time!

    actually i do have a teaching degree (el ed) and do not have a little red convertible…lol

  40. Pam says

    I am going to try and guess these without reading the ones that have already been answered.

    Sam – afraid of dogs

    Liz – the scented stuff

    Kimmie – the car ( I might have seen that one but I think I would have guessed it)

    Anya – toastmasters

    Darlene – I think I remember you saying you had tattoos and a large family? So the degree

    Lily – the coffee cup

    Theresa – singing country tunes

    Ann – I am pretty sure you can not windsurf

    Cella – the Hello Kitty story

    Jen – redhead

    Id rather poke – military wife

    Cincy Mom – the re-runs

    Jasmin – stole a Bible you live in Chicago so I am guessing you did meet Obama

    Nancy – tattoos

    Sue – the cheese

    Eydie – the advanced degree LOL

    Paula – roller coasters

    Hope I did not miss someone

  41. darlene says

    Oh my lie is the Tattoo. I come from a very large birth family and I do have an Accounting degree which please let us keep that to ourselves. I don’t want it to get out and it may ruin my image of being a flighty Kate lover because Kate Sheeple are unedumcated!!!!

  42. Ann@IW says

    I never entered the convent. I do have a brother who is a priest though.

    I can windsurf. I did so in my life, BC (before children.) My husband lived on the Gulf Coast of Florida for ten years and brought the boards back to PA with him. I didn’t say I loved it, but I learned it, and I did it.

    Yes, Paul Newman not only apologized to me, but he bumped into me first!

  43. Lily@IW says

    Kimmie, I thought you were in your 20’s yourself. It’s so funny the pic you kind of put in your head about our friends on here. :) Darlene, I remember how interesting your family history is.

    I got Pam’s confused w/Kimmie’s when I was reading. When I went back, I was stumped anyway.

    I fawned all over Ann for being in the presence and looking in the eyes of Paul Newman. I would be ridiculous if he bumped into me, I can’t imagine I would be able to even nod. Only Paul Newman and maybe a couple of more would have that affect on me.

  44. Sue says

    For me, it was the cheese. I really hate ALL cheese except for mozzarella. Lily, when this happened, the tabloids weren’t as bad and not many people could afford to have Barry at their event so only a few people had copies of his rider – it was a very well guarded secret! (Plus, if it got out that my boss was the one who sold the story it would have ruined his career. The entertainers’ agents would no longer be returning his phone calls.)
    And I really did get married in Las Vegas by an Elvis impersonator, it was just me, my husband and my friend Andrea. The vows had lines like “you promise not to step on my blue suede shoes”, and he sang Love me Tender and Viva Las Vegas as the final song. I come from a big family and at the time, we chose to buy a house over having a big wedding (at this point I think my husband and I had been together 11 years and we were already as together as you can get – a formal wedding wasn’t that big of a deal for us.) At the same time, I needed to have health insurance so we decided to have a quicky fun wedding just for us, buy a house and then have a bigger wedding later.

  45. Sue says

    Eydie – I have an advanced degree in Psychology, so I can diagnose TV reality stars’ disorders, and their children’s, too (I love this one!)

    Paula – I love riding roller coasters

  46. Samantha@IW says

    My lie was………….. being related to Tony Danza! I really do want to be an Irish Step Dancer and I really did have a dog phobia…….

  47. Samantha@IW says

    Ok I havent guessed yet and I promise not to cheat and peek.

    Pam- fellowship
    Kimmie- convertible
    Anya- toastmasters
    Darlene- large family
    Lily- coffee cup
    Theresa- labor?!?
    Cella- states?
    Jen- redhead
    Jasmin- bible!
    Nancy- tattoos
    Cincymom- surgery
    Eydie- psychology
    Sue- cheese
    Ann- c onvent!
    Paula- taught for 35 years- you can’t be old enough :)

  48. Paula says

    Nope I love roller coasters. Milleniem at Cedar Point being my all time favorite.
    Ann, sorry I retired from teaching after 35 years. I always thought I might be the oldest imperfect woman on this blog. I do have an eighteen year old though , go figure!
    My lie I’ve never been to Europe but it is on my to do list.

  49. Pam@IW says

    How old are you Paula. I am 54. I am guessing you must be older since I have only worked 32 years since college.

  50. Paula says

    I turned 60 this year. Yikes! This one freaked me out more then any other. I really started thinking about my own mortality.

  51. Pam says

    Congratulations on your retirement Paula. I am toying with the idea of going out at 55. I really want to but am a little nervous with the economy the way it is.

    I did complete a Fellowship with the Center of Alcohol Studies at Rutgers several years back. There are all kinds of Fellowship programs. This was a summer program. It was not intense or difficult and I enjoyed it. I guess I just don’t come across as scholarly. LOL. And I am not.

  52. Diane says

    This post is really fun as I am learning about all of you. Thought I might try and join in.
    1. Have waited on various celebrities in my career.
    2. I worked at a famous hotel.
    3. I have been to 26 different states in my travels.

  53. Pam says

    Let’s see Diane,

    I am going to guess that you have not traveled to 26 different states. Don’t give it up yet. Let other people take a stab.

  54. Erin Kate says

    I suck at guessing, but I’ll try two truths and a lie.

    1. My two dogs that are litter mates, but are different breeds.

    2. I haven’t spoken to one of my sisters-in-law in more than a year because of dirty dishes.

    3. I tried out for The Real World in college.

  55. Eydie says

    Oh, and Cella, if the Hello Kitty thing is true, and you want someone to take that stuff off your hands–please let me have first pick before you turn to eBay :)

  56. Ann@IW says

    Diane, I second the 26 states. I am hoping you waited on many celebs. I like the celeb stories!

    Erin Kate, the dog thing sound like a Ripley’s Believe It or Not. I am guessing that your lie is that you don’t speak to your s-i-law.

    Ann

    Yes she has kept me feeling young. I am a single mom and had to do all the things younger moms did. I passed my love of roller coasters on to her and we did a lot of amusements parks each summer. Cedar Point is our favorite though. Retirement was one of the best things I did. My 401 took a hit but it is bouncing back. We are blessed with a great state retirement plan.

  58. Theresa says

    Paula we need to hang! I love rollercoasters, too. You sound like you gave your daughter a wonderful life. Congrats on your retirement. You deserve some time to enjoy life.

    Erin Kate, I can’t believe you tried out for the Real World, so I am guessing that is your lie!

    My reveal: I never qualified for Mensa! I want to one day, and hopefully I’ll be around the next time they have the test in Chicago.

    Yes I have met President Obama, but I have no recollection because I was only 10 years old!

    I always stump people with the Bible thing. When I was young I was a huge bookworm (still am). Once, we went to the doctor’s office, and I was reading one of those “Do Not Remove from this Office” Bibles in the waiting room. When it was time to leave, I still had my head in it and just walked off with it! The funny thing is, I think we still have that Bible somewhere in the basement, and the “Do Not Remove” sign is laminated onto the actual cover, not just a sticker, so it’s quite obvious that it doesn’t belong to me.

  60. Erin Kate says

    Jasmin, you got me! My dogs are litter mates and a shih tzu and a shih tzu/jack russell terrier. I didn’t know until they went to the vet the first time, Wicky had never gotten any big fluffy hair, but Willie did. Two is not as petty as it seems: I went to visit them over a year ago and her best friend invited us all to a cook out. My sister in law said to the hostess it wasn’t fair for her to do the dishes, so she suggested she and I would help. I agreed, got up and started to rinse dishes. My sister in law rinsed her own dish, then said to me “It looks like you have this under control. I’m going home.” So she left, my two brothers were sauced, my mom was sauced, the hosts were falling down drunk and I was doing the dishes while my niece and nephews ran around the house/pool with no real supervision. That was just the last straw for me, she is inappropriate and horrible. They live in FLA, we in Ohio and my oldest brother recently went to Disney. Our two FLA brothers were going to see our oldest and sil called my brother and said “Don’t go see him, lets go to Golden Corral. He is just trying to control you by having you visit him.”

  61. Jennie@IW says

    Ack, I’m so late to this, and it’s hard to read the thread without seeing people’s reveals (FWIW, I guessed correctly about Samantha, Erin Kate and kimmie).

    Here are mine:

    1) I have never broken a bone
    2) My grandfather won a Pulitzer Prize
    3) I had a brief (very brief!) career as a hand model when I was in my early 20s

  62. Erin@IW says

    Ok,
    Here are mine:

    1. I once personally confronted Gov. Rendell of PA on a promise that he broke.
    2. Though I’ve been in the locker rooms and inside of Lincoln Financial Field, I’ve never been to a live Eagles game.
    3. I’ve eaten homemade fried chicken in Louisiana while visiting family.

  63. Erin Kate says

    Ann, I have a whole other name I like to call her. It may not be appropriate for this forum.

    I’m going with Jennie’s #1 is the lie, and Erin’s #3 as a lie.

  64. Lily@IW says

    Diane – I”m going w/the 26 states too – That’s a lot!

    Erin- I’ve eaten homemade fried chicken in Louisiana while visiting family – I’m guessing you hate eating chicken and passed this up. :)

    Erin Kate, your puppies sound precious. I even remember their names since I got one kind of like yours right before you did. He’s a little chocolate cocker shih tzu mix. He used to look like a ewok, like yours, but now he looks like a little lowland gorilla. He uses his paws in the cutest way. We are finding out that he’s not going to be the sharpest tool in the shed, but he is the most loving playful little guy. I still just melt whenever he looks at me.

  65. Erin@IW says

    You guys are too good. Though I LOVE fried chicken, I’ve never been to Louisiana and I don’t have family there.

  66. CincyMom says

    Well–CincyMom loves me some 90210 (hopefully weaning soon though). My lie was lapband surger and NOOOOO, I am not one of those who stay thin, trust me.

    This is funny because some people have so many interesting items, it is hard to figure out the lie.
    Diane–I don’t think you’ve been to so many states.
    Erin-No homemade chicken
    Jennie-Grandfather Pulitzer (toooo timely)
    Erin Kate–dirty dishes (please share, soooo juicy)
    Tony Danza is soo cool.

  67. Jasmin says

    I forgot to mention re: Tony Danza that I have the biggest crush on him though I think he’s old enough to be my grandpa. :-)

  68. Ann@IW says

    Erin,
    I have to hook you up with my sister and her husband from Philly. They swear there are only two Republicans in the whole city, and they’re it. They would be so proud of a girl from Philly who called out Rendell on a promise he broke. Which one did you get him on?

  69. Erin Kate says

    LOL, Lily, we say “Willie isn’t a problem solver.” He just isn’t very bright. He puts his front paws together and waves them (he’ll sit back on his haunches and “pray” with his front paws when he wants a treat). Wicky has no hair and it is time to cut Willie’s hair but I don’t want to, he’s so cute. He is a big, fluffy teddy bear. He is a cuddle bug, and very scared, if someone pulls into the driveway he runs to be right next to me. LOVE. (They have pages on the Daily Puppy under my name Erin Kate (if I can get the rest of the pictures up)).

    Cincymom–my sil volunteered me to do dishes at her friends house, then left me with the dishes and went home. It was my last straw. I held out five years longer than my mom, who stopped talking to her when my niece was born, my mom was holding niece and asked my brother to take a picture and my SIL screamed and literally snatched the newborn out of her hands, saying the flash would blind her. My mom out and out ignores her now. My little brother lives in the same town, teaches in the same school district, and still refuses to talk to her. Two years ago they came for a visit and she brought a loaded gun, which she stored on a low shelf in my parents closet. Her own children were sleeping in that room, and they are two very badly behaved twins and a very curious (at the time) 4 year old.

  70. Diane says

    Yes ladies I have been to 26 states . I was a military wife and we drove across country twice. Both times we took the scenic routes and stop and saw alot of different attractions in each state:) Matter of fact I recounted and found out I have been to 28 plus British Columbia, Vancouver and Victoria.

  71. Anya says

    My lie:

    Never did Toastmasters although I have thought about it in the past. I’d love to be a better public speaker. I do ok when I am very well prepared, but I’d love to be one of those people who is very comfortable talking off-the-cuff on any subject.

    You can see the part about me being a procrastinator is true because I came back too late to guess on a lot of these. :-(

    Diane, what was your LIE?

  72. Jennie says

    Samantha is right – I am far from hand model material! I’ve had persistent ezcema on the tops of my hands for years, and the pinkie finger on my left hand is crooked (mysteriously so – I never broke it that I can recall, but my mom claims it wasn’t crooked when I was born).

    The other two are true – my grandfather did win a Pulitzer (a looong time ago), and I’ve never broken a bone (knock on wood).

  73. Amber says

    I had gillian-barre syndrome when i was 14

    I’m happily married with twins on the way

    My eyes change colors depending on my mood

  74. Amber says

    Yep my lie is me being happily married with twins on the way lol, I’m not married and I don’t have any children.

  75. Elyssa says

    1) I risked getting infected with rabies to save a life when I was only 11 years old, and my grandma helped me do it.

    2) I’ve owned 2 guitars for 7 years and I can play only to the extent that if you knew the song extremely well you MIGHT be able to recognise it.

    3) I skinned my first buck when I was 7, on my family’s anual november hunting trip.

  76. snickers says

    This is like reading a good book with funny endings. Here goes:

    I drive a Black Chevy 4-wheel drive pickup
    I’ve been to the backhills of Kentucky antique shopping, but forgot to put my shotgun in the back window for all to see.
    I own more than 1 home

  77. Pam@IW says

    Boy this thread is over two years old. We will have to do this again sometime soon. Elyssa I would say number two is false. Snickers I would say you do not own a four wheel drive black chevy pickup.
    .
    We very well could have Snickers.

  78. snickers says

    Pam,

    I do own a Black Chevy Pickup.

    My lie was going to Kentucky backhills, it’s on my bucket list, but DH is scared someone will get him. LOL.

  79. Kmom2 says

    LOL this looks like fun! Here’s mine: 1. I am an animal lover
    2. I love my brunette hair
    3. My grandma used to babysit Rock Hudson
    hehehe
