While reading her blog, I discovered Tammy had passed the liars' torch to me, along with this award:
According to requirements of the award, in order to receive the huge cash prize and the semi full of Rice a Roni that accompanies the cute colorful certificate, I must tell you four truths and a lie. See if you can discern which one is the lie:
- I've been skydiving before. In fact, I've done it three times and look forward to doing it again.
- I have a half-sister who is in prison for life, without parole, for killing her step-grandson.
- I once worked in the Chrysler plant for a short period of time; unfortunately, my ineptitude got me fired.
- Both of my children were born at home, by choice, without any drugs.
- I once spent the summer working in a national forest. It was an all-women work camp, and involved stringing barbed wire, digging post holes (by hand) and clearing trails.
(I think I am also supposed to post a photo of me writing. That will have to wait until next week...)
Now I am going to pass on this award to some of my blogging friends. (And I must admit, a few of these bloggers I've picked because I am dying to see what kind of lie they brew up.) And the few, the chosen, the awarded, are:
Lisa Ricard Claro and her wonderful blog and meme. She writes marvelous stuff, shares writing opportunities, and has even launched a new meme recently. Check out her Book Blurb Friday if you haven't already...
Janel and her "Jumble." She writes. She creates bracelets and necklaces that are works of art. She's way too talented for her own good. Let's see if she can spin a tall tale as well as she can weave wire and beads.
Katie and her writing from the west coast. Sometimes the stories she tells (true ones) are so hilarious and "out there," I'm suspicious. I think she's a well-honed liar, but I could be wrong.
Liza Bean, in care of her two-legged friend Pearl. Of course, Pearl is welcome to tell four truths and a lie, too, but I am far more interested in Liza Bean's hair-raising "tails."
Linda and her blog. Linda shares her writing expertise--generously--and she makes me laugh (as do the vast majority of my blogging buddies).
OJ Gonzalez-Cazares and her blog. She's done quite a bit of traveling, and has a unique spin on life. I think even her truths would sound like lies.
Barb and her purple pen. I am looking forward to her four truths and a lie, written with a rhyme scheme...
Becky Povich and her blog. Ooops, sorry. She's supposed to be working on her memoir and not spending endless hours on blogspot. (You can write four fast truths and an even quicker lie...And then get back to your book!)
And finally, last but certainly not least, is Donna and her book publishing blog. Everyone's heard the phrase, "Still waters run deep." That's Donna. Who knows what kind of crazy, far-fetched true tales she's keeping hidden, under the surface? It'll be fascinating to find out.
