Outrageous Lies


The lovely and talented Anne Spollen has nominated me for the Creative Liar Award! Thank you, Anne! The rules: thank (and link to) the nominator, put the award on your blog, and then tell six outrageous lies and one outrageous truth. Here are my lies-and-a-truth:

1. Only a busted leg when I was seventeen kept me from joining the U.S. Olympic Equestrian Team.

2. A policeman once mistook me for a burglar and pulled a gun on me.

3. I have owned twenty different cars in my life, including a silver convertible BMW.

4. I saved a bunch of little kids from a rabid skunk once.

5. Also a burning building.

6. I hold a patent for improvements related to how the next folded tissue comes out of the box when you pull one out.

7. I once worked for the Disney company, but not as an animator.

See if you can pick the truth from the lies! Oh, and if you want to participate, then you're nominated (I know, it's lame, but most of the people I know have already done this one).

I'm going to go with the skunk.

I believe you have been mistaken as a burglar.

It's got to be number four, but I'm also waiting for you to post the pictures of you in a Pluto costume.

Jamie got it right! Due to being in the wrong place at the wrong time about 15 years ago, I really did have a cop pull a gun on me thinking I was a burglar. I just happened to be walking by a building at night where the burglar alarm had gone off a little bit earlier.

But I totally would have saved those kids from a rabid skunk if it had come up.

I'm a little late to the party, but these were might good...

And my word verification is yokenip - that had to mean something once. I'm thinking British Isles...

Yokenip makes me think of the bunyip. Maybe it's related.
