kenny rogers IS my cousin

this post is the follow-up to two truths and one lie.

i am going to start off my revealing my lie… i am not 5ft. 2 inches tall. i am actually 5ft. nothin’. so, that means… Kenny Rogers IS my cousin. distant, but still my cousin. my grandma tells me stories sometimes about her childhood and having played with him at family gatherings, etc. and i did have very good intentions of going to school for meteorology. i didn’t, because well… i suck at math & science. i still love chasing a good storm tho!

now, to guess your lies. wow, this was obviously harder than i thought it would be. made even harder by the fact that for most of you… i would have no way of knowing which is a truth statement. now, i will say, if you provided a link…. i totally scowered your blog for clues! but it really didn’t help much. 🙂

my guess for your lie is in bold. let me know how i did! either way, i did learn that you are an INTERESTING group of people and got to know you all just a bit better… and that was the WHOLE point. hope you had fun, i did!

  1. C.C. aka LorelaiCC says:

    2. I was a cheerleader in high school.
    3. I went to my 10 year high school reunion and thoroughly enjoyed it.

    Actually, #1 & #2 are true and #3 is false. 🙂 I didn’t go to my 10 year reunion at all.

  2. You missed the mark on mine. #1 was false. Although I did have my spleen removed, the idiot doctor did not leave anything inside of me (as far as I know).

  3. Oh my gosh!! You got mine right!!! I HATE camping….like with every once of my being. I feel like you know me so well!! YAY! 🙂

  4. You missed mine!lol I actually did spend 6 years in the Army AND played snare drum for my high school band (loved it!). I’ve never been a substitute teacher though…(not a kid person!lol).

  5. You missed it! I have never been on a plane but I am definitely not a vegetarian. I love meat way too much for that.

  6. I remember you telling me something like, “I’m five-feet nothin'” in an IM conversation once. So I refrained from answering here.

    You nailed mine. I played piano and trombone in different jazz groups in college, but never bass guitar. I didn’t learn to play bass guitar until I was in my late 30’s. Nice job! Did you guess, or was it just something you knew about me?

  7. Although my last name is McGraw….Tim is not a cousin (that we know of!) Great guess. What a fun way to get to know your readers. :o)

  8. jennifer

    you got it ! i do not have a twin sister. but my sister used to say really rude things to me when we were younger. one time she was in the bathroom looking in the mirror and she said i wish we were twins but we looked like me

  9. My wedding was broadcast to over a billion people…in India. I have never broken a bone – thank God I was blessed with good jeans. Though I travel often, I have not (yet) been to S.America. I plan to change that next year. And I have no interest in visiting Antartica.
