The Truth Shall Set You Free

Truth . . . Stranger than Fiction


This week, Ten on Tuesday celebrates April Fools Day!

What follows . . . are ten statements about me.  Nine are true.  One is not.


  1. In second grade, my school had a mumps epidemic.  I was the only student in the school to win the Perfect Attendance award that year.
  2. My first job when I finished college was at The Coloradoan newspaper.  I took classified ads over the phone, and typed up obituaries and auction announcements.
  3. The butterfly on my left hip is not my only tattoo.
  4. I used to play softball.  (I pitched.)
  5. I was kicked out of Brownies because I didn't pay my dues.  (To be fair, I was just not clear on the concept.  I liked keeping my nickel in the Official Brownie Coin Purse on my Official Brownie Belt.  Besides . . . the troop leader's house smelled funny.)
  6. I started out in college as a French major.  
  7. I was nominated for Prom Queen when I was a senior in high school.  (I didn't win.)
  8. If I was a boy, my parents planned to name me "Todd."
  9. One of my college boyfriends played baseball for the St. Louis Cardinals. (But not when I dated him.)
  10. I have three college degrees.  They are not related in any way.  (And one is not French.)

Can you find the fake?

I'm not sure I'd bet any of them are false, but for some reason I may be sorry, but I'll go with the tattoo.


I wonder if you really fooled us and they're all true?! If I have to pick a fake, I guess #8. I really want to hear more about #10 and the Brownies should be ashamed of themselves!


I'm going with #3 too...This is so fun!


I'm going with the tattoo. And as a former girl scout leader, I think it's horrible that they threw you out (although you didn't sound too bummed out about it).


I don't have a clue! Except maybe the tattoo?? Haha.


Visiting from Carole's and since I don't know you I'm guessing you maybe are fooling us and they are all true? ~Lisa


Is #7 false because you really did win?


I'm thinking they are all true! But if forced to pick one. I'm going to agree with the previous commenter no. 7 because you won!


i think you have a tatt, so I'm going to be a contrarian and go with #4. Most of the others have a lot of,detail--if they're not true you have a promising future in fiction writing!


I don't remember you having any tattoos so I think that's the fake comment. The Brownie one must be true because it's just so YOU.

I'm going to guess #3.


this is so much fun! I could totally believe all ten were true, but I think you're saying one's a fake. I'll guess #3.

Great list, but I would guess #3 is false. :D


I'll say #8 is false.
