I really dig party games. Ice breakers. Those little games played amongst a group of willing participants which often yields surprising revelations about each other. Some of you may recall a previous post I penned related to this.
Years ago, when Hubs and I would go on our annual camping trip with a group of about 12 friends, our beer-infused revelry often led to a rollicking game of “I never”. This is a simple game, which is a good thing when you are amidst friends from “back in the day” and alcohol is involved. Have you ever played this game? If not, it starts with one person proclaiming something that they have never ever done in their whole life. Then those who have done said thing are required to take a sip of whatever they are currently imbibing.
Suffice it to say, within a very short period of time, things could get very silly.
Today I’d like to present to you, my fun loving readers, with my version of a similarly simple yet playful game.
Responding in the comments with your very own 2 Truths and 1 lie or whatever sarcastic anecdote you wish to share is not mandatory but would make it so much more fun for us all, amiright?
Without any further ado, I present Two Truths and One Lie.
- Being John Malkovich is one of my favorite movies.
- I seriously loved the latest Mad Max movie.
- Christmas vacation cracks me up every time I watch it.
- I think I’d be an excellent music producer.
- My ultimate goal is to write a fiction novel.
- I would consider going to culinary school to become a chef.
I’m still married to Hubs because:
- He knows his way around a grill.
- He has the best one liners.
- Unlike me, he’s not at all picky about what movies he will watch.
Random stuff I used to believe:
- That New England was a state.
- That I was going to become a high school English teacher.
- That I would always live in Minnesota.
Wacky things I have done in my life:
- I once won a radio contest where I had to sing part of a line of the song “Tush”. I won a free sub sandwich. Yay me!
- Once when I was in college, I successfully convinced a guy I was flirting with at a bar that I was from England.
- One of my friends at Girl Scout camp chose to not heed our scout leader’s plea to not bring candy because bears, duh. Upon being tattled on, the scout leader led us to the fire pit where my friend’s cherished bag of candy was set ablaze. Oh, the humiliation!
- I am deathly afraid of heights.
- I am freaked out by clowns.
- I sometimes fear my blog has already peaked.
Speaking about blogging:
- The first title I came up with for this blog was “Subject to Change”
- I have a buttload of technical stuff to learn.
- I’m not scared to post about things that could make me appear to be a doofus.
Things I wish I could do successfully:
- Ride a bike.
- Draw pictures.
- Plan great parties.
Scroll Down to see the answers!
Movies: I hated the most recent Mad Max movie. It was beyond weird, ridiculously violent, and utterly pointless. I only went because Hubs wanted to see it. More on me+Hubs+movies later.
Careers: I cannot imagine myself ever having the talent not to mention gumption to write a fiction novel. Non-fiction, with a twist of imagination suits me best.
Why I am still married to Hubs: It’s not because he and I share the same taste in movies. He will only see action movies and sometimes thrillers in the actual movie theater with me. Whereas, if I had my way, we’d go to see anything from rom-coms to westerns every weekend.
Things I used to believe: That I would always live in Minnesota. I have always pictured myself living in more varied parts of the country. When I was younger, it was New York City or California. And Hubs and I have moved quite a bit over the years, due to his job transfers: we’ve lived in Wisconsin, Kansas, and now Colorado.
Wacky stuff I have done: I was the girl who brought the candy to Girl Scout camp. I didn’t get my childhhod nickname of “Candy Queen” for nothing! This was one of my first experiences with true, deep shame. And our cranky scout leader scared the bejeezus out of me!
Fears: I actually do not fear clowns. In fact, I used to have quite a collection of them displayed in my bedroom. That said, you will not see me at a screening of the movie “It”. I’m not into creepy, scary movies like that.
Speaking of blogging: I am frequently in fear that my blog posts will make me look doofusy. Yet, my passion for it always supercedes this fear.
Things I wish I could do successfully: Plan great parties. Because I already possess that talent. Examples: two high school graduation parties one year apart with plenty of (mostly) homemade food, beverages, and festive decorations. That supercool party I put on when I was 16 where everyone had to dress up as their favorite pop star. I went as Moon Unit Zappa aka “Valley Girl”. It was so RAD!
