Lie Revealed

If you have no idea what this is about and you want to, yesterday's post will help.

#3 True. I did enter my horse in gymkhana events, and in the cloverleaf barrel racing we won every time. Sometimes first, sometimes second, a few thirds. Pole bending not so much. However, the full discloser is that these gymkhana events were at the stable where I boarded my horse and only local kids entered. The family that owned the stable had the events once a month so I had plenty of opportunities to acquire ribbons and hang them around my bedroom. However, I never kicked it up a notch and entered county events or rodeos. So when I won those ribbons, it wasn’t all that competitive.

#2 True. My dad was a film editor for a production company that did mostly commercials. He got me a job as an extra on this commercial. It was a defining moment, when I realized I am a behind the camera kind of person and am totally not at ease in front of the lens. And all I had to do was sit at a fake bar acting hot, until the hot girl walked by, when my expression was supposed to show I knew I was second fiddle. The jeans were called Made in the Shade. The model was actually a VERY cool chick. I was a 20 year old from the suburbs and my jaw dropped when half way through the shoot she had a wardrobe change and she dropped her shirt and stood non-pulsed in the middle of a crew of mostly men with her titties showing (rather than walk back to the dressing room). She also made small talk with me in make-up and made me feel like a million bucks for treating me like an equal when I was just an extra and there on my dad’s say so.

#1 THE LIE! Bald-faced, only in my dreams, never even came close lie. Only in my fantasies have I ever sung in a band. Although I was in the school choir from 3rd to 8th grade, the fun stopped there. But, like many, it was always a fantasy. If I could be a singer for a day, this is my alter ego – Susan Tedechi. I pretend to be her when I vacuum.

Damn did I manage to miss yesterday's post? Did you post at an unusual time (for you I mean) or was I just off the ball?

Either way I reckon I would have guessed the lie correctly...

;)

Darn i got it wrong! Singing in a bad totally seemed plausible too! :)

Now i'm off to find that commercial on you-tube! :p

Brigit said...

I would have got the answer wrong. I would have said the lie was #2. Not sure why. I guess somehow I can see the nature person you are on your blog horse riding as a kid, and with your talent as a writer and photographer I guess I could see you as a singer. Interesting little game.

If I could sing well, I would choose her to be like that too.

:-) What a fun game, Pseudo.

Hope you're having a good week at school.

Beth said...

Dang it! I got it wrong. As for the singing, people would probably pay me to not sing. Maybe this could help out the college fund.

just noticed that typing before 6:00 a.m. is not a good idea... typo typo typo

Jan said...

Wow - out of everyone doing this meme, this is the first time I guessed wrong.

Color me surprised.

Linda said...

Well since I'm relatively new here I'm not feeling too bad but maybe I better read through the archives:)

Gaston Studio said...

I'm with mo; how the hell did I miss your post??!!

I probably would have gotten it wrong but I hate having denied myself the chance to make a fool of myself!

Sprite's Keeper said...

yay! I got it!

Jack said...

Ok, so I was way off!!

Reading your blog and all the things you have done, it was hard to choose one because I could imagine you doing all three of these things... good job :)

Kristan said...

Aw, I could totally see you singing, based on your old bar stories.

But I agree, we need to see YouTube of your commercial!!

♥ Braja said...

Bunch of liars you bloggin' women are...

Wait...ah forget it....

Amy said...

The truth comes out.

Captain Dumbass said...

Love that type of voice.

Debbie said...

I could totally see you singing.

Smart Mouth Broad said...

You got me!

Columbia Lily said...

I pretend to vacuum....so that's kind of the same. =)

Casey said...

Man, you're a good liar.

anymommy said...

Fun! I thought it was the Gymkhana one. I did Gymkhanas as a kid too - I had an arab cross pony that was a total nutcase. Had a lot of fun and I LOVED those pretty ribbons.

Pseudonymous High School Teacher said...

I did not realize I was such a good liar. Uh oh. And my 1/2 Arab? A total nutcase. He LOVED to run like crazy and won those ribbons without any help from me.

Cristin said...

If I could be any female vocalist it would be Susan Tedeschi.. she's from my area, my friend hit on her in an EMS once, when she was just a local talent.... she wasn't interested.

D'Arcy said...

I got it right! I believed the first two, but the third didn't ring true for you!


Now guess mine:

1. I was an extra in Spice World while I lived in Paris
2. I got back stage access to Hugh Jackman's broadway show because his doorman was in love with me.
3. I tripped Mike Meyers on the streets of New York.
