5 Things Meme and a warning

First the warning: Because of comments on my shootout requesting, as Paul Harvey used to say, "The rest of the story"...tomorrow morning I will be posting a story about the Landlady Shrew of Venice -- what happened after we finally got into the bed and breakfast. My warning is that telling the tale became way too wordy...exceeds my own standards for shortness in a blog. And no photos. So I don't expect any but the most hardy to read through it. I'll keep up for a day and then go back to shorter blogs.

But for this morning, I am accepting a challenge meme from Thunder from a Quiet Storm. The challenge was simple -- list five more or less unbelieveable things you have done in your life. One of the five must be a lie. The other 4 must be true. Readers can guess which is true. The meme also says that I am not suppose to reveal which ones are true and which is the lie. We'll see. Anyway, here are my 5 -- 4 true, 1 no true. Guess the fiction if you wish.

1. I did the splash dance in a mud puddle with Jim Morrison of the Doors.
2. I kissed Sophia Loren.
3. I streaked naked through Harvard Square in a snowstorm.
4. I was bit by a lion.
5. I was arrested and jailed for grand theft

Personally, they all look like fictions to me.

  1. Dear Wildman,

    I can't begin to guess which one isn't true, but I will keep your secret on the one I know that is.

  2. I remember reading about one of them, so I know it is true. I'd venture to say that another one is true and you probably deserved it. Other than that, wow. I don't know.

  3. I have no way of knowing. I am going to guess the last one. Who knows what wild things does in their youth. Some of the things I did feel like they happened to a different person.

  4. I'd say Grand Theft. But then again...since Baggy stole my heart, anything is possible! :)

  6. I'll bet you did all but the fourth, and with great style.

  7. If # 5 is a truth, then I'm sure Bagman was behind it. If # 3 is truth, then I'm sure Butler was mortified. I know doors opened for you, but is a kiss just a kiss. And are you lyin' about the lion? Hmm.......

  8. Personally, I think they all look like Bagman's fondest desires. However, I am going to guess that they are all a bit of a stretch on the truth.

  9. #2 is the lie. That's my guess. The others all seem possible, probable even, for someone with a mis-spent (or well spent) youth.

  10. They all feel like fantasies to me; or dreams, or semi-stories heard/told during a rave.

  13. #1 you already told that great story so is true.
    and if you met and played in the puddle with one great having kissed S Loren is a stretch, no one's life is that interesting. so I say #2 is false. I will be here early tomorrow with my coffee to hear the real story.

  15. I think I agree with Pauline.

  16. You did not kiss Sophia, except in Bagman's dreams.

    What do I win?
