#118-SEX, LIES, AND VIDEO TAPES (ok, mostly lies)

Hey, a big thanks to Carol ( for passing on 'The Memetastic Award.'  Carol wrote, "This is a different award to those usually given and requires a cunning skill; lying!"

First, I want to thank all of those people in my life who taught me how to lie fib embellish the truth.  The first thank you goes to my many high school students (and their lost homework stories).  The next thanks goes to all the politicians who paved the way.  But, most of all, thanks to my college chum, Sally, who convincingly assured me that she wasn't sleeping with my boyfriend (until she got pregnant). 

As a condition of this award I have to demonstrate my skill by writing five facts about myself.  Four of them have to be out and out lies fibs fabrications embellished facts!
But, wedged in there somewhere needs to be one, 100% TRUE, fact.  

Now, the hard part.  I have to pass this on to 5 other bloggers.  
So, here they are (and in no particular order) TAG...YOU'RE IT: 

I said a worm study,
not a worm studying!
1.  It was hard but I ate a spoonful of worms one time.  My kids and I were touring a worm experimentation station outside of Stockton , Missouri.  They were studying worms as a source of food.  The technician offered, my kids dared me, so I did!  The thing is, they weren’t half bad!

2.  Sorry to say, but I have been in nine MAJOR traffic accidents and totaled five different vehicles. One of which I wrote about in my blog.  The one on August 5, 1995 danged near killed me and is the subject of one of my future blogs.
Awhhhh, Mannnn! Not another one!

Give him hell, Harry 
3.  My maternal grandmother used to cook for Harry Truman when he came to the  Tom Pendergast compound outside of Kansas City.  My dad even met Truman when he delivered one of Nanaw’s meals.  Dad was leaving as Truman was arriving.  The guard greeted Truman with, “Well, if it isn’t Harry Ass Truman!”

This is a possible example.

bean attempt to throw you off! 
4.  I save my toenail clippings and burry them in my vegetable garden, in the spring.  My grandmother insisted that it helps them grow better.  (Not my toenails silly, the vegetables!)  She even took me to her garden and showed me plants without toenail clippings and plants with.  The difference was amazing!

5.  I have been blessed with some of the most interesting pets.  I once had a pot-bellied pig named Princess!  Now Princess didn’t know she was a pig.  I made her sleep outside with the dogs and she thought she was a dog.  In fact she actually barked and wagged her tail.  When I moved to town I had to give her petting zoo.  She is happy there but seems to miss being a dog.

SIDE NOTE:  And this is true... I just figured out that I can use the key commands for bold, italic and underline and don't have to use the buttons on the header of the draft page.  Boy am I slow!
Now, the hard part.  I have to pass this on to 5 other bloggers.  
So, here they are (and in no particular order) TAG...YOU'RE IT:

SO THERE YOU HAVE IT.....where is the truth in all of this?   The answer will be on #128   (The Feb. 12th issue of my EMBELLISHED life).
