3 Truths and a Lie

March 2, 2012 · 34 comments

This is one of my most favorite games in the whole wide world. I can’t believe it’s taken me so long to play it via blog post, actually. So, I’m taking another page out of my friend Chelsey’s book (geez, is this Chelsey love week, or what?) and forcing you guys to play along with me.

I made a theme for this one, too. It’s all about childhood.

1. Grease was my all-time favorite movie. I would coerce every babysitter to watch the movie and then perform a dramatic reenactment. But I always got to be Sandy, since I had a hot pink unitard to sport for the final scene.

2. When I was in second grade, I was cast as an “Ugly Stepsister” in the lower school production of Cinderella. I was so pissed I didn’t get to be the princess I sported my most pathetic stankface for the duration of the play.

3. I still sleep with a stuffed dog named Pokey. I’ve had the guy since I was 6 years old. He’s a sickly gray now, but used to be nice and white and fluffy.

4. During my fifth grade dance recital, my tap shoe flew off my foot. It skitted across the stage, I danced the whole song with one shoe on, and a fellow dance class member had to sneakily pick it up during our bow.

Three of these statements are truthful. One is not. You get to guess which one’s the fake. Is it 1, 2, 3, or 4?

If you KNOW the answer, don’t be a jerk and ruin it. Honest guesses only, ya hear?

Now get to it.

I’m going to guess that #2 is a lie. I couldn’t see you being cast as an ugly step-sister.

Ohh this is a tough one Alyssa… they all sound like they could be you. I am going to go with #3 as the fake I guess.

I say number 2, lie!


6 Lindsey @ Happy or Hungry March 2, 2012 at 12:14 pm

BAHHHH!!!! I LOVE THIS GAME! I never thought about playing it on the blog, but I may have to jump on this bandwagon. I am going to go with #3 as well, because I could seriously see you doing the other 3 and they seem more difficult to make up.
In Grade 3 I was cast as one of Ariel’s sisters in the Little Mermaid play and I was so upset that I didn’t get to be Ariel. My only line was like “I’m Alana, sister of Ariel.” I definitely had a stank face, and I was so jealous of the girl who got to be Ariel with her PERFECT hair. I am still bitter.
And then the guy who played Scuttle the Seagull got sick so I got to take over that part. And I killed it. Bam.

10 Brittany (healthy slice of life) March 2, 2012 at 12:55 pm

#4 is fake. The Grease story is just too wonderful not to be real… Right?!

I’m guessing #4.


15 Jen March 2, 2012 at 1:31 pm

#3. I danced when I was younger and a tap shoe flying off is totally something that happened during one of our recitals.


16 Kristen @ notsodomesticated March 2, 2012 at 1:47 pm

I’m voting for #1 … mostly just because no one else has voted for it yet, and I like to be the rebel! 😉

I say number four. But if it’s true you are a true performer. I probably wouldn’t started crying and ran off stage…but that’s just me. 😉

It’s hard to pick one! I think I’m going to go with #3 just because the other three are about performing and #3 sticks out!
