Not a tag...but a contest!

So I visited Amy's Wedding Jess' blog yesterday. I hadn't been in a while because she's naughty and doesn't post like she should...hence the time out. ANYWAY, she had a tag post that I really enjoyed. It was 6 quirks that her blog readers may not have known about her. I'm not too into the whole "tag" thing because my blog readers know WAY too much about me anyway. You guys know my weird quirks and how I don't take showers, I'm petrified of spiders, I put my kids in cages when they're bad...etc etc. So...I decided to take her tag and turn it into a contest. I've listed 10 quirks below. All but ONE of them are 100% true. YOU have to find the one that is a lie. If you do...hmm....this has got to be a good one. If you do, I'll send you something grand. Well, as grand as my prizes can get. I promise, you won't be disappointed, how's that? OH and I hope that all my beautiful (and handsome because I know there are some secret BOY readers) blog readers will do the same fun game on their blog because I wanna see how well I do or do NOT know you. You don't have to offer a prize...that is unless you have some delicious talent you want to share with the winner. *wink*
Good luck my friends!
1. I've never in my entire life been snow skiing.
2. I don't grow hair in my arm pits.
3. I get traffic tickets at least twice a year.
4. I never EVER eat the last bite of my meals.
5. One time I ran away and didn't come home for 3 months.
6. I only poop about once or twice a week.
7. I love pain.
8. I used to eat crickets.
9. I love to carry on conversations with myself and I do it frequently.
10. I have a secret desire to be a Marine Officer.
Can't wait to see what you guys choose as my lie!!

This contest ends tomorrow (thursday) at 7:00pm eastern time.

I'm guessing #7...course that depends on what KIND of pain you are talking about. I was also thinking maybe #4, even though I know I only get once guess. I also have a hard time believing you get THAT many traffic tickets? But I will have to ask Lindsay about that one. ;)

Valinda said...

Oh jeez! I'm guessing #2 or #10...or maybe #8. How long until I have to give my final answer??

Looks like I am too late but I think it is number 7 also. Dad

Laura said...

i hope for your sake it's 6, and i'm jealous if it's 2. but i'm going to guess 8. who does that?

Lindsay said...

it's the one about your arm pits... because i've seen the hair grow from them... mind you it's like 4 strands... but it's still there nonetheless... that is... unless your body has completely stopped producing it... in which case... i'm jealous. that's my guess.

Lindsay said...

and yes tara...i'm SURE that jessica get's at least 2 traffic tickets a year... she's kinda crazy behind the wheel... but amy's crazier... i'm the safe one (which isn't saying much). I know that #8 is true because i remember when i was little and ate mud and you said, "well i used to eat crickets!" (like you were proud) i know for a FACT that 5-9 are true.

redheadsmom said...

I am going to guess #8 because I am really hoping that one is a lie!

The Lowe Family said...

We've had some CLOSE guesses, but technically NO winners so far. One guess per comment so I'll know what your guess actually IS please.

Deanna said...

I guess #4.

Amanda said...

I guess #3

Janae said...

I guess #10.

Tara and family said...

OK, I'm guessing again and going for 1, and it's just because I hope it's true so we have another thing in common. (but that will change this winter, I am DETERMINED to hit the bunny slopes)

Tara and family said...

I know my last comment doesn't make sense, sorry, I worded that wrong. I'm guessing #1 is false, but I am kind of hoping it's true, since I seem to be the only person I know who has never tried to ski before.

nat said...

I guess #1...only because I have never been...

#5 is a lie...

Anonymous said...

I am going to guess 3

Camilla said...

Really, I have almost no idea. I guess its bad retention of information on my part. I'm going to guess #1. I like this idea so I think I'm going to copy you and do it on my blog too.

Keyomi said...

this quiz is just too awesome! ur blog posts are sooo interesting! love coming here to read!!

Dena said...

#1....have no idea
#2....you seem to be hairless everywhere else...why not armpits too
#3....uh, seems a little low for your average
#4....i'm going for this considering EVER is a big word. i haven't seen you eat a whole bunch of meals just a whole bunch of lunchables and junk food...pretty sure you polish those off
#5....true, can we do this sometime soon?
#6....yes
#7....seems odd, but wouldn't put it past you
#8....sounds yummy
#9....who doesn't
#10...go for it girl

since all have been chosen, i'm guessing just for fun. i'm going for #1 or #10 with #1 being top guess.

ps.....lindsay's in the dr. now. (if they're on the different time zone)

Dena said...

Good grief, can't believe I chose #4 and then chose again at the bottom. I'm going back with #4...forgot all about that one. can we say short memory (what was it 1 minute between the time I typed the two)

Deanna said...

Is anyone else checking this thing every 30 seconds to find out who is correct? This is the excitement of the day around here. :)

the ragsdales said...

I guess #1.
2.I believe it could be true, even if it is only 3 or 4 hairs, at least it's not a bush of them. Laser? Or just lucky? 3. I believe it. 4. Is this a phobia? I'm just the opposite-i hate leaving just one bite on my plate...especially if we've gone out to eat b/c i'm paying for every little drop. 5. You need to blog about this one. College? Camp? 6. This has to be true, it used to happen to me. 7. I'm positive it's true because of pulling teeth and pushing on ingrown toenails. 8. SO weird and gross, but so you. 9. i would think you were weird if you did NOT do this. 10. i believe it.

SM said...

#4.

1. No idea, but I would assume that your mom, dad, and Linds would know this about you.

2. If this is true, you suck!

3. I get them more than that! I have court in a couple weeks! :)

4. That's my guess.

5. There needs to be a blog about this. I vaguely remember Lindsay telling me about your rebellious period, so I know this is true.

6. Ditto. Jerad thinks there's something wrong with me.

7. I can totally see this in you.

8. Gross! Lindsay ruled that one out...

9. Ha! Totally believable.

10. This is my second choice, but it's conceivable.

Bonnie said...

I know what the answer is... HA HA HA!

Jess said...

I'm going with #1! If I win...I get out of time out!
