Three Truths and Four Lies
In an attempt to showcase my personality, I give you a game that blurs black and white, an adaptation of two truths and a lie: Fact or Fake?
What you know:
- The girl in the picture is all grown up.
- The author of this bullet point, Kaitlin Kramer, is the cutie in the picture.
- All bubbles were popped in a matter of seconds.
Let the games begin…
Pick out three truths and commit their numbers to memory.
- I didn’t have a license until I was 18.
- As a teen, I don’t pay when I go to the pool.
- I memorized the recipe for chewy chocolate chip cookies.
- I cried while reading Five Feet Apart.
- I can play Twinkle Twinkle Little Star on the piano from memory.
- My brothers are in college.
- I live on a farm in Minnesota.
…Got your answers?
YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED…
p.s. You’re welcome for the puppy love.
1. I didn’t have a license until I was 18.
FALSE. Although I did procrastinate taking the test until a couple months before my 18th birthday.
2. As a teen, I don’t pay when I go to the pool.
TRUE. I didn’t go to the pool often in my early teen years, and when I did, my mom paid. When I was 15, I got a job as a lifeguard, and I walk in without paying. (Most often for work shifts, obviously.)
Did you think me a criminal? How could you!
3. I memorized the recipe for chewy chocolate chip cookies.
TRUE. Purely by making them too many times to count, I can list the ingredients and how to make it at any time. Though I messed up most of the early memorized attempts… like mistaking powdered sugar for flour. Resulting in cotton candy-ish cookies, an irate mother, and a disappointed family. Would not recommend.
4. I cried while reading “Five Feet Apart.”
TRUE. It’s one of two books that made me cry. This is quite a feat, as I’ve read most of the books in my small town library.* I did not cry while watching the movie, though.
5. I can play Twinkle Twinkle Little Star on the piano from memory.
FALSE. Despite taking three years of piano lessons, I was never taught the most magical song in the galaxy.* I can, however, make up for my ignorance, as I do know Do Re Mi by heart.
6. My brothers are in college.
FALSE. While I do have SIBLINGS in college, I don’t have brothers in college. I have one sister and one brother, and that’s more than enough for me.
7. I live on a farm in Minnesota.
FALSE. This sentence’s purpose was to trick those picture examiners. I do live in Minnesota; however, Small Town, U.S.A. is where I proudly call home.
*Less than once every 99,999 years I utilize a hyperbole; this is one of those times.
