Friday Fun: Two Truths and a Lie

Two Truths

The other day, my daughter–a junior now!–told me about her first day as a freshman mentor and some of the things she tried to get them to open up during freshman orientation. She had quite a few that were not interested in sharing so one of the tricks she used was the game, Two Truths and a Lie. She got a few takers but still had a few who refused to participate. Party poopers.

While I played the “supportive mom”, I couldn’t help but think how fun this would be for a blog post. But I didn’t want to be the only one playing and we definitely don’t want any party poopers.

How the game is played is that I tell you three things and you have to guess which two are the truths and which one is the lie. At the end of the post, I am going to challenge another blogger to do the same post. See, sounds fun already. We’re just going to keep this train of laughs rolling, folks.

  1. I’ve peed myself more than once (toddler years excluded).
  2. I had a pet spider growing up.
  3. I can eat the gross Bean Boozled jelly beans (from Jelly Belly) without gagging.

Leave me a comment with your guesses of which ones you think are truth and which one is the lie. Then come back on Monday to find out if you were right.

I tag blogger Julia Munroe Martin to play Two Truths and a Lie on her own blog. I’ve known Julia for quite a while and met her online through mutual writer friends. She’s a mom of two amazing kids who are both becoming doctors. One just started medical school and the other is in residency. She lives in Maine and has the most beautiful instagram feed of her Maine surroundings. She’s also an assistant editor, guest post manager, and contributor to Writer Unboxed. I love her with all my heart and hope you check her out. Julia head shot

Julia, this is a two post game. You state your three things in one post, adding a link to the blogger who tagged you (that’s me!). In the second post, you reveal which were the truths and the lie, then you must challenge another blogger (with a hyperlink) to play, passing along the same rules of the game. Cool? Cool. I thought this would be a fun way to find new bloggers as well as get to know the ones you already follow.


Because I’m starting this little game of blog tag and have no one to credit for tagging me, I leave you these two ladies whom I would LOVE to see play the game in one of their videos. I know it’s not really the format of their channel but they are so funny I can only imagine the hilarious things they would come up with!

These are the ladies from #imomsohard and you can find their videos on YouTube and Facebook. If you haven’t seen them yet, you are in for a treat. They are originally from Nebraska which is 2/3 of why they are awesome. Here are two of their videos talking about summer. How many of you can relate?! Sooo funny.
