The Truth About the Lie…and the Truths
On Wednesday, the Wednesday Random bloggers posted three truths and a lie.
1.) We lived in a commune after my parents got divorced.
Lie: But it was close. My mom was seriously considering a commune. She ended up moving us into a trailer park near the college she attended, instead. Which, to be fair, was also full of a lot of hippies, students, and hippie-students. So, it was kinda like a commune.
2.) I learned to drive on an Allis Chalmers tractor.
Truth: Both sets of grandparents had farms. One was a small sustenance farm, and the other was a working dairy farm which involved a lot of haying in the summer. Which meant I got to learn to drive the tractor while everyone else tossed bales on the wagon.
3.) Touching (sometimes even thinking about) wet paper makes me gag.
Truth: There are very few crafts I’ve ever met that I didn’t like. Paper maché is one of them. I don’t know what it is about wet paper that makes me gag, but *full body shudder* I just can’t deal with it. And people chewing/eating paper? Insta-vom.
4.) My dad once won me a horse in a poker game.
Truth: We didn’t have Lucky (her hand-me-down name) to terribly long, but she was a sweet, very, very old horse. I used to ride her bareback. Apparently, the previous owner hadn’t included a saddle in the bet.
So…Kel and Kris were both right. 🙂
