Tag! I’m It: Five Things About Me

OK, since I can’t really come up with anything interesting to say on this Monday evening, I’ll do Vic’s tag now. Here are five things about me. Only four are true. Guess the one that’s false, and I’ll say that you are the smartest person alive. A caveat—sadly, those of you who know me are disqualified.

1. I was a cheerleader in high school.
2. I worked at McDonald’s for a summer.
3. I can roll my tongue.
4. I’ve run for public office.
5. I’ve been tear gassed at a protest.

Good luck! I tag anyone and everyone who has yet to participate in this little game.

  1. I’ll go for the Cheerleader being false. Seems against your ideology.

    That said, I’m very curious what public office you’ve run for.

  2. I’ll go for rolling your tongue, since it’s apparently a genetic thing.

    And nice to know my tag is something you can fall back on when there’s nothing interesting left!

  3. Sorry, Sassy.
    That was Old Dive in typo hell.

    What I meant to say was:
    Hmm …
    I’ve been thinking about this all the way into the office.
    Okay, I’ll come clean; I made the mistake of checking your blog at five this morning and I’ve spent the entire four hour journey with thoughts of you as a cheerleader stuck in my head.
    For a man of my age and … er … proclivities, that does not make for a comfortable or relaxing journey (nice, though).
    So:
    1. That’s just too disturbing to think about.
    2. That’s just too disgusting to think about.
    3. That’s nice.
    4. Yes. I can believe that one.
    5. I’d love to believe that one of my right-on lefty pal.
    It’s gonna have to be number one, because I want to be able to sleep tonight.

  4. hi sassy, i thought it might be number one even before i read the comments (tmi, dive).
    i don’t know you at all, so all the options you have presented are equally possible to me.
    hm, actually, i’ll guess number five. i can see you at protests, but hopefully you didn’t get tear gassed.

    and like james, i’m very curious about number four.

  5. Hee hee hee.

  6. OK, I’m going to say #3, the tongue thing because I can see the others being true (sorry, Dive). If you had gone to public school, I would say #1 is wrong, but since you didn’t, and in private pent-up schools, cheerleaders are a different breed from those in public schools, it might have happened. Dive, if it helps, picture a knee-length wool skirt with a long-sleeved, high-necked shirt and very little jumping.

  7. I have no idea how to spell the noise that image forced out of me, Robyn, but imagine a caribou with really bad toothache and you’re somewhere close.
    I’ve spent all morning working hard to try to force “Cheerleader Sassy” out of my head, and now … (makes the noise again) …

  8. I’ll go for running for public office. I totally think you were a cheerleader at some point. I think the genetics thing covers the rolling of the tongue since lots of people can do that. McDonald’s I think you’ve mentioned before as true. Same for tear gassing.

    I love this idea though-five things, guess which one isn’t true.

  9. Oh Sassy, see what stirrings you’ve caused even from thousands of miles away! Hee hee hee! I have to absolve myself from this quize though but Dive, just go with the flow! Her beautiful long brown hair in pigtails with silky ribbons blowing in the warm autumn breeze!

    p.s. my figners msut be broekn thsi mronign

  10. Thanks, Prudence. That’s helped a lot (not).
    Now you know why Sassy likes to keep an ocean between us …

  11. Oh this is too funny. Way, way too funny.

    Hee hee. Poor Dive.

  12. LOL. Oh this is great. I know the answer….but since I know Sassy in real life I’ll abstain from ruining the fun guessing game. But this is great.

    :-D

  13. The Hangar Queen

    I’m going to go with the tongue rolling as being the falsie.I can see you as a cheerleader/McD victim being tear gassed to conciousness and running for office to right the wrong.

  14. No. 1 i reckon. Can’t see it somehow, bit straightforward, bit boring. Oh you’re going to say you were one now aren’t you? If so, sorreeee !
