When I was in college, for a writing class I was taking we played a game to "get to know each other." The game was that you name three facts about yourself, two of which are true and one of which were made up.
Because it was a writing class, most of the people told these crazy, elaborate stories about themselves, and we had to guess which one of these embellished stories were true. But I kept it simple. These were my facts:
1) I have never read anything by Shakespeare in my entire life, including sonnets.
2) I have shaved a man completely bald.
3) Jerry Seinfeld is my second cousin, and several years before his TV show, we saw him in a club in NYC and didn't think he was all that funny.
Which one is false? My class couldn't guess.
I agree #3 ;pDelete
another for #2ReplyDelete
I'm voting for #1. (Granted, it would take some doing...)ReplyDelete
My gut instinct is to go with 1, but I would think that would be difficult (and my gut has a tendency to be wrong)ReplyDelete
#3, because I don't find his stand-up (as opposed to his TV show) all that funny, either.ReplyDelete
I think people are a wee bit confused.ReplyDelete
TWO are true, ONE is false. So you're picking the one that you think is FALSE.
I *did* pick the one I thought was false!Delete
You're right - I misread it (although I'm not sure how). Change mine to #1.Delete
I do not think you are old enough for number 3 to be true.ReplyDelete
I guess I thought Fizzy was in her mid to late 30's.Delete
You went through high school English without reading Shakespeare? I find that hard to believe unless you went to some crazy school.ReplyDelete
I'm going with #2.ReplyDelete
Definitely no. 1 (having been subjected to Romeo and Juliet, Twelfth Night, Macbeth, etc. myself)ReplyDelete
I'm going to go with #1as wellReplyDelete
Please let it be #1.ReplyDelete
Vote for #1ReplyDelete
Def no. 3ReplyDelete
I'm voting for number 2. I think you like to read and #3 seems plausible. Give us the answer already! :)ReplyDelete
Oh my goodness! This has been driving me crazy for days! I keep coming back to your page several times a day! Granted I love reading your blog, but please just tell us which one was the lie!!!ReplyDelete
...looking at what I just wrote, I may have been a little melodramatic.... I think #1 is the lie.... *goes and hides in a corner*
Fair enough. Number 3 is the lie. I have no famous relatives.ReplyDelete
*sighs* the sweet satisfaction of being wrong :PReplyDelete
You have shaved a man bald ??!!!!!ReplyDelete
Yes, and we have photos to prove it. He had really long hair and it was SO fun to do. His girlfriend didn't like me very much though.Delete
