Exposing The Truth (+Giveaway Winner)

Remember when I said this..."I'm just telling y'all right now. I'm a horrible liar. Ask Impulsive...or my husband. They'll tell you. I suck at lying. So, I'm going to give this my best shot."

Yeah, well.  Funny thing.  I sorta forgot to remove a lie, so there's 2. Apparently my "best shot" was not that great.

So, there are 2 lies and 4 truths...sorta.

Here's the dealio...
  1. I'm head-over-heels for a boy whose name rhymes with Schmob Schmattinson. My husband knows all about it and he's OK with it. Tru dat.  Now, I use the work "OK" loosely.  Michael basically tolerates my crazy.
  2. I LOVE tomatoes. I could eat them everyday. I especially love them when they've been picked right off the vine. I just slice them up, put a little salt on them, and dig in! LIE LIE LIE LIE LIE.  I HATE tomatoes.  I love everything a tomato makes (i.e. salsa, ketchup, marinara sauce, bruschetta, etc.).  I just hate raw tomatoes.  There like in a larvae state.  It's disgusting.
  3. My favorite music in this whole wide world is rap...preferably rap from the 80's and 90's. It's my jam.  True.  I love rap.  It makes me wanna dance.
  4. I'm an only child.  True.  Technically speaking.  I am my mother's only child.  I was raised an only child.  However, I do have 3 half-siblings and 2 step-siblings.
  5. I refuse to spend big money on purses, shoes, etc. I think it is a total waste of money.  Yeah, pretty much a lie.  I LOVE Coach purses...and shoes, and perfume, and scarves, and hats, and luggage...I love it all.
  6. One time, in Sunday School, to my mother's mortification, I said the word "bastard".  True.  I did that.    
Take a little side trip with me...

I was about 5 years old.  It was summertime and I had spent the majority of the weekend fishing on the river with my grandpa.  When we were fishing, my Grandpa would reach his hand down into the minnow bucket and he would say "come 'er you little bastard".  To my 5 year old mind, this just made sense.  We fished with "little bastards".

So, This particular Sunday morning, my teacher was asking the class what they had been doing all summer.  When she got to me and I answered "fishing", she proceeded to ask for details.  Where had we been fishing?  Did I catch any fish?  What had we been fishing with (bait, that sort of thing)?  To which I answered "little bastards".  To which the class of 5 years olds started asking "what's little bastards???  Mrs. Sandy, what's little bastards???" I'm sure she regrets asking me for details to this day. 
    ...and that's the truth.

    love and rockets,

    Kelli said...

    Ha! That is a funny story. I'm not a big tomato fan either...just sometimes. I'm the same way as an only child...raised as one, but I have a 1/2 brother and an adopted sister. I can totally see you rockin out to some 80's rap!

    I was wrong. I call a lot of stuff "little bastards". Actually bastard is one of my favorite words for some reason.

    Shawn said...

    Well isn't that just craptastic! I so should have gone with my first instinct!

    I only like tomatoes hot or in salsa or bruschetta, the thought of a tomato on my sandwich instantly makes my gag reflex go wild!

    MiMi said...

    I knew it! I was right! Right? I don't remember.
    I said "son of a bitch" to a pastor. It was awesome. I should write that out.

    Becky D said...

    I was right on one of them! I'm so with you on the tomatoes! I cane at ketchup with almost anything, but give me a tomatoe....and i'm not eating it or scrapping them all off!

    Brandy@YDK said...

    i love stuff made from tomatoes. yumm.

    but I don't like spending money on purses, shoes, etc. I'm a practical kinda girl.

    Impulsive Addict said...

    What? How can you describe in perfect detail the way I like my raw tomatoes and then HATE them? But I KNEW you were tricking us with that only child crap...and I should have REMEMBERED that you have super cute Coach shoes. *hitting my head* GAH! My mind is HORRIBLE these days. I wonder what it will be like in my 30's?

    Dawn said...

    I love tomatoes... mmm...

    I'm like Brandy with the shoes and purses...I just don't see the point in spending a lot on name brand.

    And, I totally knew about you and rap music. You can really sing it!

    hotpants™ said...

    Liz said...

    The fishing story is too funny! I know a lot of people that like everything tomatoes are in just not the actual tomato itself. Not me, love them right off the vine!

    Myya said...
