Have you ever been privy to all sides of an event or a story in which no part of the same story resembles each party's telling of the story?
I stayed with friends last weekend and their neighbors had just got back from a vacation at a lake.
The little girl comes over and says it was the most boring time she has ever had. There was nothing to do but sit in the lake.
Husband comes over later and says it was the most miserable time he’s ever had. It was hot, the lake was hot and he had to put up with the in-laws.
Ran into wife at the store and she said it was the best vacation they ever had. Kids loved the lake and stayed in it, husband and her family had a grand time cooking out for each other and playing card games.
As she walks away, I’m thinking, were these people on the same vacation?
Do you have any stories where the parties telling the story does not resemble any part of the other person’s telling of the same story?
