In honor of her new novel coming out, Jamie conducted her own Can You Handle the Truth book release blog fest. For the last week, participants posted 2 truths and one lie and others played along to guess the lie.
My two truths and one lie I posted were the following:
1. A horse ate my dress once while standing in line to go on a tour of a castle.
2. When I was ten, I tumbled over the handlebars of my bike while going downhill, and broke my arm.
3. I played a pirate in a college stage production of The Pirates of Penzance.
I am so happy to announce today that #2 is the lie. I did race down a hill and tumbled over my handlebars, but all I got was major road rash. No broken arms. In fact, I’ve never broken a limb in my life, though I did have a small hairline fracture in my little toe after cramming it into a door frame.
As for #1, I was 7 years old and we had just dismounted from the horse-drawn cart that carried us up the mountain to Neuschwanstein Castle in Germany. My mom wanted a picture of me in front of the horses. I guess one of them liked the color green as he proceeded to munch down on my dress. Thank goodness, my mom brought a change of clothes as the horse pretty much ate the seat out of my dress.
As for #3, it was a dare to try-out. I never thought I’d make it. I’d been in plays before when I was younger, but this was a musical and everyone who knows me knows I can’t carry a note for diddle squat. Came to find out, I just needed to hang from the rafters of the ship and pretend to sing. I did, and all turned out well, especially since I lip-synched most of the songs. 🙂
And there you have it. Make sure you check out the other participants to find out what their lies were. Just click here!
