Want to play Two Truths and a Lie?

Asked by Aethelwine (42476points) July 29th, 2009

Nimis asked this question when Fluther had many new jellies at the beginning of the year. It’s a great way to get to know your new neighbors.

Tell two truths and one lie. Lies can be revealed Saturday, August 1st., so everyone gets a chance to guess. I’ll start.

I dove off a 40 ft cliff into Lake Mead.

I voted for Obama.

I danced at a gentleman’s club for one month.

I got my first tattoo at 22.

I do not know how to drive a stick-shift.

I haven’t eaten a hamburger, or any other form of cow, in 21 years.

cyn's avatar

@lillycoyote I’m just going to guess..
I think you only know one person ..not two…who deal with the chickens.

lillycoyote's avatar

@tinyfaery I bet you do know how to drive a stick-shift and you don’t eat cow, so I’m thinking your 1st tattoo at 22 is the lie.

cyn's avatar

@tinyfaery the stick-shift

cyn's avatar

this thread is lurve of FUN!

lillycoyote's avatar

@cyndihugs and you are being very coy:) I’m not sure if I want to respond to your post quite yet. I don’t want to give it all away quite yet.

cyn's avatar

@lillycoyote define coy…

Allie's avatar

Let’s remember that the original question says ”Lies can be revealed Saturday, August 1st.

tinyfaery's avatar

Okay. I will leave you all in suspense.

Aethelwine's avatar

@Allie I think I was the first to break the rule. dammit again!

lillycoyote's avatar

@allie oops! I forgot that part.

desiree333's avatar

The third one is the lie?
Here are mine:
1. I want to live in London, England
2. I love going scuba diving (at least once every 2 years)
3. I was a vegetarian for 8 months

evelyns_pet_zebra's avatar

Well, I will let you all know the truth now, to Hell with Saturday, I have no patience.

1. TRUE: I have had friends refer to me as the unofficial patron saint of spiders because I never kill them and often pick them up and move them to a place of safety.

2. TRUE: I have an eyeball tattooed on the back of my head. It is the normal size of a real eye, and the color is green, while my real eyes are blue.

3. FALSE: I am NOT related to Val Kilmer. The only famous person in my family was my great great grandmother, who was a member of Sitting Bull’s tribe. Her name has been lost over time, but she was briefly married to one of my Scottish relatives on my Mom’s side of the family.

lillycoyote's avatar

@cyndihugs coy as in not giving away which one was the lie, but I forgot that the lies didn’t have to be revealed until later. I kind of broke the rules, but there is one truth and one lie still out there for me and I am staying mum. :)

cyn's avatar

@evelyns_pet_zebra the lies were supposed to be revealed by August 1st….

Damn rule breakers!!

KatawaGrey's avatar

@cyndihugs: I do seem like the sort to have sailed a catamaran, don’t I? :)

cyn's avatar

@KatawaGrey the rest seemed specific to be true…..but let’s not say the answer until Saturday.
:)

evelyns_pet_zebra's avatar

I am a rule breaker. I defy authority, and I hate being told what to do. neener, neener, neener! I also have no patience. Three days is too long to wait, and in ten days is my birthday. I have plenty to do and no time for waiting around. I’m getting ancient even as I type. =)

@jonsblond I love meat, only if you are the one giving me the lashings, and I’ll only go fishing with Sarah Palin if I can use her as bait. simply place the hook thru the back of her neck, and cast the b$#&h overboard!

Tink's avatar

Dropping birthday card huh, damn!

cyn's avatar

@Tink1113 I thought you were stop following the question?

evelyns_pet_zebra's avatar

@Tink1113,
Do not even think of wishing me a happy birthday. I’ll be busy that day checking out nursing homes and calling around to find a good quality wheelchair.

@Jeruba Knowing you, I’m not surprised about #1 and #2. But Nureyev was gay, so #3.
@tinyfaery all seem possible, but I’ll go with #1, betting you got the tattoo much earlier.

whatthefluther's avatar

I’m a bit late to this one, but here goes:

1).I’ve been arrested only once, spent nearly a day in jail, alone in a cell on suicide watch with bail set at $50,000.
2).I was the player at the end of the bench on two of UCLA National Champion Basketball teams and racked up a total of 18 official minutes of NCAA play in my two seasons (it would have been zero minutes if not for some blow-outs)
3).In all my years of street and dirt motorcycle riding, I never had an accident or laid a bike down, though I was ticketed for reckless driving for speeds in excess of 110mph, the charges of which I got the DA to reduce by dressing up and impersonating my own attorney.

Dog's avatar

@whatthefluther I think 1. I really want #3 to be true.

JLeslie's avatar

@whatthefluther yeah, 3 is really good.

Jack79's avatar

@jonsblond and @Jeruba yes, I’ve never even been to America, so I can’t vote there. I actually do own 4 cars, though 2 of them are wrecks I’m trying to get rid of (or at least recycle) and one is in Germany. Funnily enough, the one driveable car I own doesn’t have the proper licence plates, and will be confiscated if I get caught driving it (but I drive it anyway because it’s got A/C and it’s too hot right now).

Great Question, cheers!

ABoyNamedBoobs03's avatar

@Allie we both know I wouldn’t have to get you drunk young lady ;P.

Allie's avatar

@ABoyNamedBoobs03 Shh. That information was supposed to be for you only.

ABoyNamedBoobs03's avatar

@Allie oops lol… if it’s any consolation those pictures were top notch sweet heart :)

whatthefluther's avatar

@Allie….Well it’s after midnight PDT. Of course, I don’t mind holding off considering…......

Tink's avatar

I made it too easy for you guys, my lie was that I love meat. Yuck!!
I really do hate pink, and my favorite color really is orange.

whatthefluther's avatar

…..........no one guessed the lie! I attended UCLA when the teams won the championships in 1973 & 1975, but I can assure you, Coach Wooden does not know whatthefluther, nor am I worthy of Bill Walton’s soiled headband! I’m very proud of my motorcycling skills. Jail aint a whole lot of fun (betrayed by a friend, false accusation, no charges, she told them I was suicidal, which worked out for the best….I didn’t have to rub elbows with the real criminals…oops, the other arrestees).

augustlan's avatar

I have been married twice.
I am a high school dropout.
I am not missing ten teeth… but I am missing nine! No gaps, though… just a very small mouth. Eight adult teeth were pulled just before I got braces, and I lost another during my hysterectomy. (Breathing tube knocked it out, right in the front, too! I had the gap filled in after I recovered).

Allie's avatar

My lie was the second one. I didn’t graduate HS a semester early, though I could have. I opted to stay, take easy classes, and finish with my friends.

I’ve really never dyed my hair.
I really am afraid of how I’ll die, but not of dying.

ABoyNamedBoobs03's avatar

I was at this club in Miami, ended up dancing with shakira, didn’t even notice who she was, the best ten minute time span of my life.

I’ve been ambidextrous for as long as I remember, when I was 7 or so I used to hate writing class and would get so bored, so I used to draw while I was writing what the teacher told us to write. didn’t realize not everyone could do that until I was in 7th grade lol… fun fact: Leonardo Da Vinci could also draw and write at the same time, as well as write backwards (could never do that, used to try all the time) ^.^

And I’m a damn good cook ;)

jeanna's avatar

My lie was the poems. I’ve actually never tried to get my work published.

Four men have seriously proposed (I didn’t count the ones who joked about it).

Yes, my father tried to kidnap me when I was a baby.

A few of you got it right. :)

Around 1977, Arnold Swartzeneggar did a book signing in San Francisco, for his book education of a bodybuilder. This was long before Terminator (I think he was doing Conan movies). My friend Steve and I went to the city, and got his autograph.
When he signed my book, he asked my name, and wrote very legibly. His signature was very, very readable. He did this for everyone, and I was amazed that he didn’t just scribble and move on.
Watching him write so much, I said “You write all that, aren’t you getting writer’s cramp?”
He looked at me, and said “Cramp? What is cramp?”
“Umm, muscles knots.”
He raised those big arms and hands and said “Oh, yes. Many cramps today.”
The whole store laughed.
I taught Arnold Swartzeneggar the meaning of the word Cramp.

My lie was that 6 of my bosses have gone out on stress. Only 5 of them have, and one of those 5 were faking because he thought he was about to get fired for raping a coworker, and associated crimes. I am proud of the 5 though. (Not all were my fault).

KatawaGrey's avatar

My lie as the eating of the raw radishes. I hate radishes with a passion.

My tattoo was started on groundhog day of last year (which is how I remember it) and I have never sailed a catamaran. I really want to though and it is one of my dreams to own a smaller catamaran. :)

cyn's avatar

It’s August 1st :))))
I was born in Spain.: I was not born in Spain, but I do come from Spanish ancestry.(my grandparents)
I love rock.: Are you kidding me! I love ROCK! ANY type of rock
I love reading.: Yes, I have to admit it. I love reading. In fact, I can’t go to sleep without reading.
:)

irocktheworld's avatar

My lie was that I had a penguin staring at me…. it’s not true but I saw one at the zoo before!
* I love music and I listen to it every day whether I’m busy or not!
* It’s true,I flew out of my bike while riding down a hill and it hurt really bad and it was on my sister’s birthday and I messed up her age on my birthday card =P

cak's avatar

My lie – I did not start a kitchen fire and blame it on my drunk sister. She took all the blame herself, when the firemen came to put it out. That was a tough one for her to explain when the parents got back in town!

I think the show Twin Peaks started the cherry stem thing. Just one of those random talents.

The hotel break-in – I caught my boyfriend cheating over Spring Break and found some of my friends to stay with; however, he had the key to our room. He was also a major ass and I didn’t want to deal with him, so my friends and I broke into the room (real secure) and grabbed my things…and soaked all of his stuff in the tub. :~)

filmfann's avatar

@cak did you get your friends to bring guns with them, OJ?

Resonantscythe's avatar

Holy crap my life is so dull

Simone_De_Beauvoir's avatar

I didn’t read the instructions, that’s for sure – I revealed my lie before – I didn’t work in a place where foot fetishists visited – I considered it and am still considering but just never got around to doing it

fireinthepriory's avatar

My lie is that I’ve never been out of North and South America, but it’s not far off – while I have been to more than 25 states, Canada and Brazil, outside of the Americas, I’ve only been to the UK, and only once. @Jeruba is the only one who got it right. :)

So yes, I do have five times as many brothers and sisters than I do first cousins (I have 3 sisters, 2 brothers and just one first cousin!).

And I have also trapped fish in the lake that Sarah Palin lives on, lake Lucille, which is in Wasilla, AK. Interestingly enough, Lucille lake is actually categorized as a dead lake – it can’t support a fish population. So it was a total waste of an hour to throw traps in Lucille, and a waste of another to pick ‘em up empty the next day. Not to mention I got my waders all scummy. Blech. But I was in the area, so I thought I’d give it a try and see if the lake was still dead. Sure enough – still dead. Too bad, it’s a pretty lake.

I got my first tattoo at 22: True I was too poor in my youth to afford a tattoo, so when I finally had 80 bucks to spare I got my first tattoo. In retrospect, I’m glad I waited. I knew I wanted tattoos at 16. If I now had every tattoo I thought I wanted, I would not be as happy with my body art as I am now.

I do not know how to drive a stick-shift: Lie I do know how to drive a stick-shift. In fact, my very first car was a stick, and I learned to drive in that car. To this day, I still drive with my left hand on the steering wheel and keep my right hand on my parking break, as if it were the shifter.

I haven’t eaten a hamburger, or any other form of cow, in 21 years: True I was a veggie for 7 years, but then became to poor to eat, so I had to eat what I could. However, I could never go back to eating red meat. Just the smell of it cooking repulses me.

I’m surprised how many got this wrong.

Damn_Tony's avatar

My lie was that I don’t like Family Guy.
I do speak Spanish and I don’t like reading.

Dog's avatar

Reveal time eh?

1. I ran off to elope in Vegas at 18: True- but we changed our minds and gambled all night instead. Boy did I dodge a HUGE bullet!

2. I put out my car fire by shaking a 6 pack of beer and opening it. It happened, it worked but I LIED- It was my first spouse who cleverly thought of the beer and saved the car.

3. I did give CPR to a deer- Note: I did not say mouth-to- snout – we had O2 on her and an ambu bag. She had been hit by a car and sadly we lost her.

I am enjoying reading all the reveals.

ekans's avatar

My lie was that I voted for Obama. I didn’t vote for Obama because at that time, I couldn’t legally vote.
It is true that I have juggled in four continents, North America, Europe, Africa, and Asia. Specifically in the US, the Netherlands, Rwanda and Uganda, and Japan and Israel.
I also didn’t ride a bike since I was in seventh or eighth grade, about five years ago, until this week.

KatawaGrey's avatar

@ekans: Wow, being that young makes the whole juggling on four continents thing way more impressive.

JLeslie's avatar

I told my lie too early, didn’t read the instructions well. So you all know my wedding dress no longer fits, and I am pretty sure it never will again, it barely zipped the day of my wedding. I was born in Walter Reed Hospital in Washington D.C. and wish they would not get rid of it. It has lots of history, I remember my mom telling me a former president had a room there when I was born, can’t remember which one? If they do close it down I hope they don’t completely destroy it. As for being a cosmetic and fragrance buyer…the vendors have huge launch parties, some were at clubs on South Beach and the vendors took me out to lunch all of the time. Best of all was my staff, we all loved each other, we all worked hard, and we blew away the sales goals, it was wonderful.

Simone_De_Beauvoir's avatar

@JLeslie same for me about my 1st wedding dress, but hey, on my second wedding, I was 7 mo pregnant so I could totally fit into that one, now, lol

cak's avatar

@filmfann ha! Funny…nope, if any of us carried a gun, we’d be very likely to shot ourselves in the foot.

Jeruba's avatar

I lurve you guys for falling for a whopper, but I am nowhere near awesome enough to have taught a Sanskrit class in college or any other time. (A few of you guessed that right.) I never even took a Sanksrit class until I was long out of college.

I own a piece of Stonehenge. When a friend traveled to England, I asked him to bring me a pebble from someplace. He was afforded a private visit to Stonehenge by night, within the fence. While he was there, a pebble fell to his feet, and he looked up and saw a matching chink in one of the lintels. Quick-quick, he scooped up the pebble (I know he shouldn’t have—I’m sorry!) and brought it home and broke it into 3 pieces, one for himself, one for his daughter, and one for me.

I kissed Rudolf Nureyev on the lips. I used to volunteer in a small theatre company in Boston, and for a while I hung out with the cast and crew after the shows in one of the downtown haunts of theatre folk. One night when the Royal Ballet was in town, I spotted Rudolf Nureyev in the same restaurant, alone, all hunkered down at the far end of the bar. I was 23 and brave after a glass of wine. When he left, on impulse I shot out of my seat, accosted him on the street, and asked if I could give him my best kiss. Gay or not, he accepted it and returned it with some gusto.

ABoyNamedBoobs03's avatar

@Jeruba touche for pulling a fast one on virtually everyone here.

KatawaGrey's avatar

@Jeruba: I figured you for being so awesome as to do everything. I just thought you spoke every language on the planet, even the dead ones!

monsoon's avatar

I never wrote a novel, I do not possess that kind of commitment.

But I AM obsessed with Harry Potter, and I AM hydrophobic.

Nially_Bob's avatar

I wasn’t aware there were going to be explanations, I suppose it’s only polite for me to participate.
1) I can speak French fluently – Lie: As stated previously I can speak French reasonably well but not fluently.
2) My favourite film is ‘The Shawshank Redemption’ – True: I’ve lost count of the amount of times i’ve watched the film. It’s an incredible film.
3) I have only one real testicle – True: When I was born one of my testicles didn’t descend and my parents decided it was best to have it cut out so for many years I only had one. Then, when I was 16, I wrote in a plea to the NHS for publicly funded cosmetic surgery. The demand was (and probably still is) huge but I got lucky and was put on the list. So now I have one artificial testicle and one real one. Thankfully everything’s still functioning.

Nially_Bob's avatar

@monsoon If you don’t mind my asking, do you know how your hydrophobia began?

Hambayuti's avatar

—-> I can drive. LIE. I can’t drive. Someone from the family (or a personal driver) always drove for me. I’ve always wanted to learn but never got to the part of actually taking up lessons. I want to and I’m planning to (in the near future). Honestly, I think everyone is scared that if I knew how to drive I won’t come home. Ever. Maybe they’re right. LOL.

—-> I had sex in a golf course. I’m sure you wouldn’t want to hear about this… =P

—-> When I was a teenager, my parents hired a private detective to track me down. Heavy partying during my teenage years was what drove my parents (actually it was my mom’s idea) to have someone follow me. I would tell them I was going to a bar/club, which I really did, but would mostly not come home after a few days or so (sometimes even for a week). And I never call or return their pages (no mobiles yet). I always had this feeling that someone was following me, but I only confirmed this after my dad told me just a few years back.

cyn's avatar

@Hambayuti talk about privavcy…:)

Hambayuti's avatar

@cyndihugs Yeah, at first I was really upset. But after I got a child of my own…I kind of understood what was going on their minds and how they felt if I don’t come home on time…especially if they don’t hear from me for a few days. I worry sick if my son, comes home late or does not return my call or text messages. Although, I could also just be scared of my own ghosts…

ABoyNamedBoobs03's avatar

@Hambayuti for some reason i’ve had sex on three different golf courses, no idea why…

filmfann's avatar

@ABoyNamedBoobs03 do you count that as a stroke?

ABoyNamedBoobs03's avatar

I look at it as -2 under par.

two of them were great times, one was mediocre.

Aethelwine's avatar

This has been so much fun. Thank you everyone for participating.

1. Truth. I did dive off of a cliff into Lake Mead when I was 15. I grew up in Vegas and visited the lake quite a bit. I am also a risk taker, especially when it involves water.

2. Lie. I did not vote for Obama. I was a Hillary supporter before Obama or Palin came into the picture. I always said I would vote for Hillary or McCain because I thought they had the most experience.

3. Truth. I did work at a gentleman’s club for a few weeks. It wasn’t completely nude, we kept our panties on, but it was crude enough. I could only handle those few weeks of old men cleaning their snorkel. if you know what I mean.

Jude's avatar

1. Truth—My girl and I were in Chicago for New Year’s. We brought in the New Year at a well known blue’s bar and we got the chance meet and chit chat with Brian Dennehey. Such a cool guy, out chatting with the peeps. He was there with his lady, and he invited our group over to his table for a bunch of drinks. I was wearing a cute Carmen Sandiego dress, and he paid me that rather nice compliment.

2. True. Yep, I fell through the floor and landed in a damp/dark basement that reeked of “Mr. Must”. A friend tossed down his penlight, and I was able to make my way to a old set of stairs. Creepy, dark, cold and smelly—I flew up those stairs whilst screaming like a little girl.

3. False. I did prolong getting my license, though (didn’t get it until 18) because my Mom and I got into a pretty bad car accident. We were t-boned by highly inebriated driver (hit on the passenger side) and spun around a few times. The right side of the car was totaled. The dude got out of his car (with a cut on his forehead) and was yelling—all belligerent, saying that it wasn’t his fault. He was coming at my Mom and I, and he scared the crap out of me.

tiffyandthewall's avatar

my lie – i’ve never had pink hair. but lord, i’ve tried!
i did, however, find a john wayne movie collection in the spare room in my house, and have taken to watching them recently…(:

monsoon's avatar

@tiffyandthewall, why have you tried and failed to have pink hair, if I may ask?

filmfann's avatar

@tiffyandthewall I’m a straight guy, and I’ve had pink hair (halloween).

ABoyNamedBoobs03's avatar

dyed my downstairs pink once… the better half was a little surprised. my berries looked like easter eggs :D

Tink's avatar

I would not be able to live with myself if I ever had pink hair.

rooeytoo's avatar

@ABoyNamedBoobs03 – you are a funny person, I love your sense of humor!

ABoyNamedBoobs03's avatar

much appreciated ;) you’re nothing to shake a stick at either you sexy thing you.

lillycoyote's avatar

I know this is an old, very old question but I haven’t been around for a while. @rooeytoo is the only one that got it right. I haven’t hiked nearly a third of the Appalachian Trail, I’ve never even set foot on the Appalachian Trail. I maybe could find it on a map, but that’s about it.

lillycoyote's avatar

@jonsblond Things have changed around here since I’ve been gone. I noticed I got something called “The Davy Jones Revenge Award” and had to figure out what the hell that was. This was the only old question I answered so I found my way back here… thanks so much for the welcome back, it’s been a while!

Dog's avatar

Hi @lillycoyote !!!

The awards are a trip- fun hiding everywhere!
Glad to see you back here!
