So, thanks to those of you who played along yesterday with 2 Truths and A Lie. Drumroll…
1. In 8th grade, I won the Bright Smile award and spoke at my school’s promotion ceremony.
This one is TRUTH. There was a time, friends, when I was ridiculously perky and cheery and not cynical. While I’m now what I like to consider a “cynical optimist” the days of eternal cheer are gone. But, at 13, I was gifted with the “Bright Smile” award (along with a crap ton of other classmates) because “I brightened my teachers day!” I also spoke at my 8th grade promotion ceremony as the representative from our teaching team’s group of kids. My speech was entitled “Life Is Like A Symphony,” as I was also a band nerd at the time.
2. All throughout school, I was never tardy, and never earned a detention.
This one is also the truth. I was never late to school and never, ever got a detention. EVER. I had a teacher once threaten to write me up for saying “crap” but my crazy tears stopped her. I’ve seriously never sat in a detention or been sent to the office for doing anything bad. You know what they say though—good girls are just bad girls that haven’t been caught.
But seriously. Um, I waited ’til after the detention days to do anything even slightly bad.
3. I failed math all through school, but still managed to graduate, due to attending summer school every year.
This is a big lie. I am not a math person, not even a little bit. But, I always got a B, except for that one time I received a C. But, I never had to attend summer school or anything else. I am definitely not a math person, but I did work my butt off, and always managed to do okay.
So, those are my answers to yesterday’s questions. But today, I have a question of my own:
Who thinks this is a good idea? Baby hands?! Really? I already hated the scary Burger King guy, but this?
