John Scalzi's Weekend Assignment #181: Two Truths One Lie

"The greatest enemy of any of our truths, many be the rest of our truths."

-William James

Weekend Assignment#181: Present three facts about yourself. Have two of them be true. Have one of them be false. Encourage people to guess which one is the false one. When do you reveal the false one? On Monday. In a new entry (I'll be linking to your original post). You'll get two visits for the price of one!

Extra Credit: Have you lied about something today (aside from the Weekend Assignment)? You don't have to say what the lie was. Just whether you've lied today. Little white lies count.

-John Scalzi (By The Way)

Jeepers, I have been blogging over four years John, there may not be anything new to learn about me. Hmmmmm. Scratching my head...Oh... I know...

Two Truths And A Lie

1. I am the youngest of three children, and my spouse is also the youngest of 3.

2. My favorite bird is the pelican.

3. My eyes are green with little flecks of purple.

Alrightly then readers, have you been paying attention? Do you know which ones are true and which one is a lie? Guesses anyone? As John instructed, comeback here to Ellipsis on Monday, to read the reveal. :)

Extra Credit: Nope, I cannot tell a lie, I did no lying yesterday. :) Nope, not me!

"Every truth passes through three stages before it is recognized. In the first, it is ridiculed, in the second it is opposed, in the third it is regarded as self-evident.

-Arthur Schopenhauer

Hmmm well thank you for the comment on my journal, Well now, these lies are hard to figure out, I'm going to try and guess and I'm going to go with The Pelicans, I was leaning towards the purple in the eye but my sister has streaks of gold in her eyes , which sounds like its kinda common but its such an odd color gold that I can almost believe you have a shade of purple lol! Oh boy I'm confused, I'll def check back on Monday!

Wow, Carly. I'm gonna say #2 because I'm just taking a wild guess. I'll have to check back to see just how terribly wrong I am!

I fully believe about the pelicans. Green eyes, yes, but with purple? Hmm. Guess I'll go with the 3rd kid thing as the lie, but really, I just don't know!
