Here are the answers from yesterday’s 5 Truths and A Lie game. Thank you for all the comments, I’ve been loving them all! This has been SO. MUCH. FUN.
Okay, here goes:
#1 As amazingly romantic as this seems, it’s all true. I remember their sawdust floors just like it was yesterday. My “future husband” was on his lunch break and had been holding the ring in his pocket for days, waiting for the right moment. (Or was he having second thoughts? Hmm…) I love that he chose the Wiener Factory, because we really were just two big kids having fun. One of the most exciting days of my life.
#2 Two Pepi’s, how crazy is that? But, this is true, just not at the same time. The first was a standard poodle, the second a toy poodle. I liked the second one better, less snobby.
#3 Why yes, yes this did happen. I don’t think they were fooling anyone, but they were hilarious to work for and even taught me how to swear in Italian.
#4 If you said “Balderdash!” to the roller disco party you’d be RIGHT! I was as klutzy as they come and every time I got on roller skates I ended up in the ER and came home with a cast.
#5 Well, for those who said they can’t imagine I have any wild blood in me, sadly, you’re wrong. (And for the record this isn’t the worst of it…just ask my mom.) Many famous Lynda’s at the time were spelling their name that way and it felt wildly exotic. This faze lasted a few weeks, as did being a vegetarian.
#6 If two little mice seem not girly enough for a gal like me, I’ll have you know I begged my mom to buy them for me when I was overwhelmed with loneliness when my brother and sister foolishly signed on for a few more weeks at sleepaway camp. Needless to say, when my sister came home, she banished poor Pixie and Dixie to our garage because hopping on their squeaky little wheel was waking her up in the middle of the night. Poor Pixie and Dixie, I still feel guilty for not sticking up for them.
