The Truth of the Matter

This is my completion of the previous post wherein I listed six lies and one truth about myself in response to having received the big fat liar/creative writer award. I have retyped my list below with explanations.

1. I speak three languages.

Unfortunately, no. I speak English fluently and only enough Spanish and French to get myself in trouble.

2. I have a pilot's license.

Nope, but that would be awesomely fun.

3. I'm a twin.

No, but people used to mistake me and my sister for twins!

4. I'm deaf in one ear.

Perfect hearing! But when I was very young I had horrible ear infections and tubes lots of times, and the docs warned my parents that I might lose my hearing.

5. I'm afraid of balloons.

There's no logical explanation for this, but I am terrified of balloons!

6. I have a bachelor's degree in history.

My bachelor's degree is in English, though I'd love to study history. I find it fascinating.

7. I've competed on the women's pro-bowling tour.

Not even close. I used to bowl leagues, and I bowled pretty well, but not well enough to compete on the tour. Plus, in the last few years due to certain events I've developed a distinct aversion to bowling. Curious? Well, you'll just have to wait for the movie...that's what my screenplay is about.

I had a lot of fun doing this and then visiting the blogs of others who have!

Good ones! I thought it was the history one for sure.

Balloons? Maybe a fear from a past life...

I suppose every lie has a bit of truth in it!
