2 truths, 1 lie

Pin It

I recall a trip in college, where several of us were playing this game as we traveled from one desitnation to another via mass transit. The point of the game is to figure out which of the 3 statements is false. So, we're supposed to come up with 2 unlikely, but true statements, and one lie.

One of our professors overheard us playing this game, and asked about it. He then asked if he could play.
The 3 statements he made:
1) I have killed someone.
2) I been with a prostitute.
3) I spent a night in jail.

He played really well. None of us wanted to even try to guess. Any of those three seemed so unlike the professor we knew!

I've been thinking about some of the unlikely things that have occurred in my life. I came up with 2 truths and 1 lie for you to guess:

1) One of the people who babysat me as a child was later in life convicted of assisting murder.
2) I stole something from a friend as a child, and lied to her face about it.
3) Some of my family tree is inbred as recently as 4 generations ago.

What do you think is the lie?

Let's see... based on my memories of grade school, I believe the "stealing" story. And having met you and Justin and Jeremy, the "inbred" part seems pretty true, too. So the murderer part is the lie. :P

Now for me:

1. In my immediate family of myself, my two parents, and my two siblings, I'm the only one never convicted of a crime that required jail time.

2. As a child, I spent an entire summer collecting aluminum cans, only to have the entire proceeds stolen from me by my uncle.

3. I thought I was gay for most of my high school and early undergraduate years.

Chew on those.
