Oh ... Really?

Four truths and a lie

This is a game that is often played to help large groups of people get to know each other, most often in training classes and the like. I don't really know what inspired me to do this now, but I think it would be fun to pass it around.

The basic premise is simple ... make five statements about yourself, four of them true and one false, or a lie. Then, let others guess which one is the lie.

Like so:

1. I am a direct descendant of two US Presidents.
2. I see what other people hear.
3. I delivered my own child into my own hands.
4. I was once mistaken for a bank robber.
5. I can move my eyes independently of each other (think Marty Feldman).

Which one is the lie?

Now, it's YOUR turn. Yes, YOU!

Funny that I know you most of your life but I don't know which one is the lie! I think I know but it still could be true!

I'm going to say the delivering a child by yourself is the lie, simply because in this day there's always someone around to lend a helping hand 😉 Unless you were out in the woods alone somewhere...

Hmmmm...#3 sounds unsafe, but stranger things have happened. #5, who can't? #1, well, that's directly possible (see Thomas Jefferson's expanding lineage, and who knows where JFK was at all times?) #4, cops make mistakes all the time, and when they get excited on adrenalin, granny and her pincushion becomes a lethal weapon...

That leaves #2, 'you see what other people hear'? Now, I enjoy riddles, and loved it when Bilbo cheated poor Smeagol out of his ring (what's in my pocket?), but this one has a lot of possibilites...but Rhonda gave us a clue, yes precious, so I'll back off of #2 and go with...#4.

For now...

Well...are you going to tell us?

LissaKay's avatar OK, Barry ... since you asked so nice.

Serr8D got it ... #4. I've never been mistaken for a bank robber. I was, however, pulled over once because the car I was driving matched the description of one that was involved in some sort of crime. I was only 16 and it scared the holy bejeebers out of me.

John Adams and John Quincy Adams are
Great(x)-grandfathers to me, the lineage is direct on my dad's mother's father's side of the family. Much of the family is still in the Virginia area where the Adams lived way back when. I could join the DAR if I wanted to.

I am a synesthete - I "see" music.

My daughter was a home-birth, and with only a little help from the midwife, she was born into my hands. Any more detail than that would be an over-share. But we have it on video tape.

The eye thing, I have been told, is just creepy. It also gives me a headache, but it's one heck of a party trick.
