To Tell the Truth

Yesterday, I attended a local Business Women’s Meeting and it was fun and fascinating. We usually have a speaker at the monthly luncheon, but this month we wanted to do something to get to know each other better. What we did was a sort of mixer called “2 Truths and a Lie”. I’ve seen it on blogs - in fact I’ve done it myself - but for the life of me can’t find that post. We learned some very obscure and fun facts about each other (a form of verbal blogging) and laughed more than a little.

Here are the three things I told about myself. You decide which one is a fib (the southern name for a lie).

1. I once was recorded doing a yodeling duet in a beautiful Alpine village in Switzerland.

2. I travelled by dugout canoe to visit the village of an indigenous Indian tribe deep in the rainforest. The gentle natives in their attire of loin cloths for men and skirts with a la naturale tops for the women served us lunch wrapped in banana leaves – their version of china.

3. My most memorable speaking engagement was in 1995 when I shared the platform in Tampa, FL with Zig Ziglar and General Schwarzkopf at a Get Motivated Seminar.

Now, if I posted photos, it would be a total give-away, wouldn't it?

So what do you think? Which is the fib? Click to view the comments and I'll tell you.

The fib is number 3. I have a good friend that spoke the circuit of meetings with Zig as headliner and I've always aspired to meet Zig Ziglar personally.

I did get recorded on a video while cutting up and yodeling. For fun. Trust me, I'm not good at yodeling. But I do love to sing.

If you've been a reader for a year, you know that last summer, I had an incredible experience in Central America and the rainforest adventure is true.

Thanks for stopping by!!

Love the question and find the answer in the comment area.

I've done the very same "ice breaker". Fun stuff!

Like Christine, we use this as means of getting acquainted at small groups. We call it "Truth/Truth/Lie", and the people are encouraged to be totally convincing in their lie-crafting. Typically it engenders HUGE amounts of laughter.

Great fun.
