Natalie passed this on to me. I think she knows I'm always up for an opportunity to lie a little. Thanks, Nat!
First I’ll post the rules:
1. Thank the person who gave this to you. (Did that!)
2. Copy the logo and place it on your blog. (Did that, too!)
3. Link to the person who nominated you. (Yup)
4. Tell up to six outrageous lies about yourself, and at least one outrageous truth. (not a problem)
5. Nominate seven “Creative Writers” who might have fun coming up with outrageous lies. (Hmmm....don't know if there's anyone left to do this)
6. Post links to the seven blogs you nominate.
7. Leave a comment on each of the blogs letting them know you nominated them.

Okay, first the lies/truths. Guess which are which.
1. One of my first jobs was a bingo caller at a small amusement park nearby. It is truly amazing how seriously some people take their bingo. They brought trolls dolls and all kinds of good luck stuff.
2. My husband proposed to me while we were installing a new wiring harness in his car. I had to be underneath because I'm smaller and when he passed me the connections to stick onto the transmission, the ring was dangling from them. Gotta love motorheads.
3. When I was in college, we were required to volunteer a certain amount of hours. I was late the day we had to sign up and got stuck being a clown for the children's hospital. The kids loved it, but I couldn't stand to look at myself in the mirror. Though I can make a pretty nifty balloon dog.
4. I was born with an extra kidney. They talked about removing it, but by the time I was old enough for the surgery, the kidney had dissolved.
5. When I was ten, I rewrote several Nancy Drew books because they weren't scary enough and because I didn't like how they ended.
6. One time, I wrote "hooker" as my occupation and "pimp" under my boss's job title on a form for student aid. I thought I was being funny. I'd filled out the form the right way, too, and used this one to make people laugh. Except...I mailed the wrong form. I was mortified when I realized what I'd done, but nothing was ever said.
So, which do you think is the truth?
Now for the passing along of this lovely chance to lie.
...and there you have it!

You imply there's only one truth, so I'm going to guess #5, though there are a few others I think could be it! :)
