Four Truths and a Lie

I was blog surfing, well actually going back and reading some old posts and their comments and hopping to old commenter's blogs, not that they are old people, but comments from old posts...never mind. Anyway, I hopped over to Di's blog. I had some good laughs, and decided to copy one of her posts, well not totally but yeah stealing her idea.

So lets see how well you know me. Here are five facts about me, four are real and one is totally made up. Can you guess? The correct answer"ers" will be entered into a drawing and receive a really cool awesome gift from me. You ready?

  • In high school while "spending the night" at my friend's house, with a couple of other girls, we decided we wanted to make jello at 2 in the morning. After going to Safeway to pick up some Jello, we headed to the El Camino and did a little cruising. Some guy asked me if I wanted to ride on his motorcycle, and I stupidly did. When he dropped me off at the end of the road, I burnt my leg (was in boxers and a sweatshirt because we were going to go to bed) really bad. When my mom saw it later, she asked how it happened and I told her it was on our Wolf Oven door, do you think she believed me? (sorry Mom for lying to you but maybe I am lying now).
  • Ok again on another sleepover at this friend's house, we "snuck" out and went to TP a friend's house. Before we got there we stopped off at Safeway and all got an apple. We each ate the apple and put them in a brown bag on his doorstep. While we---actually I think just me and one other gal, the rest were hiding--were tp-ing his house, he came home with his friends. We ran and they drove after us, chasing us all through town, until we "got away." They called the cops on us as well. We were gone before they arrived.
  • While on my mission--I served for 18 months in Northern Brazil- we had a general meeting with all the other missionaries in the area with one of our general authorities (Elder Maxwell.) He and his wife spoke to the missionaries. The paid translator couldn't make it and so they asked me to translate. I translated all the speeches to the Maxwells and when Sister Maxwell spoke to the group I translated her talk to the audience. I didn't think I would be able to speak so fluently in another language but I did ok.
  • While on my mission on one of my preparation days we were down town getting our monthly allowance and some lunch. There were some hippy tattoo artists on the side of the road. I saw them there every other week, when we were down there. After watching them give tattoos to some other folks, my companion and I got matching parrot tattoos on our lower backs. (sorry Dad for lying to you when you asked me if I had one, again maybe not :))
  • In college--kind of vague isn't it--ok my freshman year, my friends and I "broke" well more like hopped over the fence at McDonalds and played on the playscape. We would hide in the ball pit and throw the balls at the net wall, and sometimes they would go over the fence, hitting passing cars. That play area is now just a cement slab with some picnic tables.

So there you have it my four truths and one lie. It seems to be glaringly obvious to me which is not the truth, but then again its about me and my lie....So which is it? What do you think?

Was it you translating for the Maxwell's? (the others however are VERY hilarious...and all except you getting a tattoo...would believe them)
Your blog is so fun!

merathon said...

i don't buy that mission tattoo story for a second!

Melissa said...

Knowing what I do about your HS life, I completely believe the first two and the last one! I am guess since you didn't show us your tattoo the same night another nice young mother revealed hers, I am guessing it is the tattoo.

Sheri said...

Aaaa... No Tatoo!! AT least not while serving a mission!!
Fun though! i was reading through them thinking it was 4 lies and a truth, so I was really stuck until I read the bottom!!

Becky said...

i don't believe the tattoo one.

Cheryl Anne said...

I have to say the tattoo story. Maybe if you got "LDS" or "CTR" but no parrot. :)

TexasBoy said...

I've seen the tattoo, and it's hot!

The Thorley Family said...

I've seen you in a swimsuit... no tattoo!

Charly said...

Hahaha...looks like I missed what we were supposed to do. Yeah, like I said in my first comment...the tattoo one is the one I don't believe. I guess I sort of got it though. =P

Angela said...

Um... I will go with the majority

Jessica Simonsen Howard said...

I will go with the tattoo and not believe my brother.

Yvonne said...

I would have to imagine you would NEVER have gotten a tattoo while on your mission ; )

Shannon and Brad said...

The tattoo is a complete lie girlfriend!!

katharine said...

i think you'd better go get that parrot before you leave hawaii ;)

Hey It's Di said...

I have to admit that you are right on the old blogger thing! I am and realize it again every day. (that's my Alzheimers setting in:)

OH, I so don't believe the tattoo one either! Maybe a Henna but nothing permanent. Although I do know I guy that got a tattoo on his mission and of all things he had "CTR" put on his thigh. Go figure!!

Aly Allred said...

YOU DON'T HAVE A TATOO!!! I know, I'm your sister and lived with you AFTER your mission.
