Four Truths & a Lie

I finally won! Here are my four truths and a lie. If you're wondering what the heck I'm talking about, click here for the game details.

Ding! Ding! Ding! We have a winner! Congrats, Karen, for being the first to guess #4.

1. My college roommate is the daughter of a critically acclaimed novelist.
True - my freshman year roomate was the daughter of Maria Flook, author of a few relatively obscure but well-received literary novels.

2. I won a beauty pageant in high school despite the fact that I'm not at all the beauty queen type.
True - I was my town's "Miss", even though I was the total dark horse of the pageant. I had a huge advantage because I played a piano piece for my talent and two of the judges were piano teachers...

3. Both of my children were born via c-section - no natural births for me!
True! Sydney was born via c-section after 26 hours of labor, 8 of which were at 8 cm. My doctor told me I could keep going as long as I wanted, but she didn't think she was going to come out the old fashioned way. I opted for a scheduled c-sec w/ Owen to avoid going through unscheduled post-labor c-sec hell a second time.

4. I was awarded the Outstanding Senior Student prize in Social Studies after my boyfriend and I pulled a tipsy social studies teacher out of the ditch one night.
False! This happened to my best friend - not to me!

5. I can put my foot behind my head.
True - I have extremely flexible hips and can do this and the lotus w/ no problem along w/ lots of other yoga poses that give other people lots of trouble. It's funny because I'm not really very flexible anywhere else...

All right, Karen! You're up next!

Okay, I'm guessing the lie is about the c-sections!

Oh, those are tough. I'm going to guess the lie was 4. I believe you won the award, but I don't believe you won because you rescued the drunk teacher!!
