one of these things is not like the others...

Naomi at Light & Darkness has a new game to play, and I'm on board.

Directions: You have to post three things about you. Two have to be true and one has to be false. The others have to guess which is false. That's it. You decide what you want to post. The fun thing about this is that you can throw those unbelievable truths in there that noone would ever think are true. Just depends how you want to stump us. After a couple of guesses are made, you can reveal the correct answer and if you want you can go into more detail about the truths.

I'll post my three things. In comments, tell me which one you think is false. Wednesday or so I will reveal the truth.

1. I co-taught an ESL class (English as a Second Language) when I was 5.

2. I drove to Mexico with some friends while I was in college, and was thrown in jail for drunk and disorderly behaviour.

3. I used to dance and sing for change in the halls of my mom's work when I was 6.

Stay and play, then take this to your site and let us know some true and false things about yourself!

I LOVE that song. What a great title, Alicia!

I'm going to guess no. 2 because that's my first guess. Like you, I've second guessed. I'm just going to go with first answer.

Glad you're playing.

I'm picking #1 because it just sounds unrealistic to me. Maybe it is true, and I could see it being true, but out of all of them, I think I'll go with this one. I could see you having a wild side and getting arrested in Mexico, but then again, maybe you aren't that wild? It's tough to tell.

I'm going to vote for number one as well. It just seems a little too unrealistic. Unless of course you were teaching other children English and not adults, which sounds plausible if not actually what is implied, though not fully stated. Though now I have a hilarious picture of a five year old Alicia standing front and center in a classroom teaching English to a bunch of adult immigrants.

Definitely #2. You don't seem like the disorderly type - though to be fair, I've never seen you blog drunk.

#2 is my guess.

Number two.
Maaa-aybe it's true, granted, but seems like you might have mentioned that one before as it's definitely a show-stopper.( I'd certainly be bragging about it if it was me. )
Do we get the real truth?

I'll pick number two here. Though I do think we should all be arrested for being drunk, I know it's on my list ;-).

1 and 3 are true and # 2 false? :)

Posted by: Ali at May 10, 2004 9:43:37 AM

I believe it's number 2. Because I just do not see you as the drunk and disorderly type. And because I can believe that you were teaching ESL at 5...for some very odd reason. I bet you were very good!
