Two lies and a truth


Recently I was tagged by the lovely Kathleen at Easy for me to say. Her zany meme is called “Two Truths and a Lie.” The idea is to list three things that “supposedly” have happened in your life: two of them truthful, one of them not. Then lucky readers get to join in the fun by guessing which is which. Sorry, no prizes are given. Just the honor of being really smart and somewhat psychic.

Unfortunately I could not recall two interesting truths that were worth writing about. Keep in mind Kathleen was a reporter and she hung above a Nuclear Power Plant and interviewed hoodlums. All my truthful memories were either salacious or silly.

So I took the liberty of changing it to “Two lies and a truth.” I guess I’m better at making up wacky stuff than living it.


Here are your choices:

1. When I worked at Sea World I was in charge of coordinating film crews at the park. For two weeks, the gang from Captain Kangaroo shots several episodes on location. One day when taking supplies to the trailer of the Captain, his libido was running amok and he made an icky pass at me. I fended him off with a ball point pen.

2. For the past two months George Clooney has been in St. Louis shooting his next film, “Up in the Air.” Don’t want to say I stalked him, but I did happen to wander in to the pub where he was rumored to hang out. Mr. C was on premise. I offered up the most obscure Clooney trivia and he rewarded me with a shot of Limoncello. Alas, he did NOT make a pass at me.

3. Several years ago I had a big job interview coming up. The night before my bozo boyfriend got ridiculously frisky and his hormonal mojo resulted in a love bite on the neck. I had to go to the interview with a sophomoric hickey in sight. Scarves were not in style at the time.

Well, those are sordid episodes from my life. Or are they? Truth or lie?

Cynthia said...

I'm going with #3 as the truth, because it is oh, so likely. :^)
The other two were highly entertaining and I love that you invented such fun!

I'm going with #2.

sallymandy said...

I think #3 is true. Number one is funny, but seems like Captain Kangaroo was dead by the time Sea World was around? Or not? I don't know, of course. These are funny.

Kathleen said...

LOL big time! I love your creative license. Hmmmm...
this is hard. I SO want to believe #2, and #1 gives me the heebeegeebees. And since scarves are always in style, especially if you're of Italian descent, I'm going to go with #2!!!!

lakeviewer said...

I'm going with George Clooney. Who can look at the guy and remain still?

lakeviewer said...

I missed the post on formaggi. You are lucky to have such provisions. It's about the only thing I miss about big cities, the imported Italian grocery stores. I ended up making my own panettone last Christmas.
(It is possible to bake a wonderful panettone following Gourmet's recipe.)

Ciao cara.

Joanne said...

I love this, I am so going to put it on my blog. I am going with no3 the other 2 well em!..

Marvin D. Wilson said...

#3. But for the sake of having lived, I wish all 3 were true. LOL

Fun post. :)

I'll bite...I'm picking #1 to be the truth cause who would make that up??!!

ds said...

#3 as well; it is just too likely, however much I wish it were #2 (but then you'd have saved the glass because it had his prints on it, right?). #1 icky/scary/sickly funny (a ballpoint pen?!)--and you're too young. Make a great short story though...

Rudee said...

Oh. I like the Clooney story best, but I'm picking # 3 to be true. As you can see, I'm greatly disturbed by # 1 and have avoided it altogether.

Cormac Brown said...

I would say #1 is the fictional situation and...


...a ball point pen?

The Vegetable Assassin said...

Dude, I like to think ALL of those are true, so don't tell me the real answer and let me live in awe.

Otherwise I'm going to say the Clooney one is a lie and also the hickey one, merely because I want number one to be true because that is AWESOME.

drollgirl said...

i need to know the answer!!! i have to know! please tell me, even if you don't tell the others.

the rest false

Buh buh buh buh baby (baby, baby) don't forget my number (number, number)

What were we talking about? I was so distracted by the Milli Vanilli guys I derailed completely.

Oh yeah. I'm rooting for the Captain, because Mr. Greenjeans has always been my secret hunky monkey. (And now I can die of shame)

Bruce said...

I already read the answers before reading this, but I would have picked #3 regardless. This has happened to more women than I can count. The woman with the hickey always gets the job....why? Because the 'put out'....it is a no brainer......Captain Kangeroo, Clooney....no way.
