How many of you have ever played “Three Truths and a Lie”?
I remember when I was first introduced to the game my freshmen year of college. I had volunteered for the homecoming planning committee and we played the game as a way to get to know each other at the first meeting. If you’ve never played before, the concept is pretty straight forward: you list off four “fun facts” (three are true and one is a lie) and the other players have to guess which one is a lie. The first time I played, everyone assumed that the statement “I’m a twin” was a lie, when in reality it was that my birthday was that month (it’s actually in February). Tricky. Tricky.
Why do I remember these things? I have no idea. My dad (and Derek) learned long ago not to question my memory since I remember almost everything. Unfortunately, my awesome memory seems to be reserved for the random details that no one else cares about. Like I can tell you what I wore for my art history final, but I couldn’t tell you anything about the paintings we were tested on. Which is sad because I did really well in the class.
Anyway, I thought it would be a fun game to play on the blog. I’m going to list three truths and a lie. Your job is to pick out the lie in the comments below, then list your own three truths and a lie in the same comment. I’ll try to guess the lie and hopefully other commenters will want to try and guess too. Just think of it as a big reader ice breaker.
Alright, here we go.
1. I had an avocado, hummus, feta, and spinach sandwich with carrot sticks and apple sauce for lunch today.
(I know what you’re thinking – that’s the lie! I spy hummus on that plate, too!)
2. My wedding is FOUR MONTHS from today!
3. I put a down payment on a new bike. Should be here next week!
4. I found this on my calendar for Saturday. Anyone have any idea what it is?
