two truths, one lie.

I thought this question from the Neat award email (they were all great questions from was lots of fun so I decided to give it its own post.

I’m going to reveal the lie.

If you want to try to guess first (if you didn’t already do so in the Neat post comments)… scroll slowly!

Tell us two true things about you and one lie. And then let’s see if we can guess the lie.
(1) In high school, I was in a rock band with four guys called BBC.

(2) I have literally had my head examined because I whacked my head on concrete.

(3) I received a perfect score on the math portion of my SAT/college entrance exam.

In the comments in the Neat post, 3 guessed that #1/band was the lie. And 2 guessed that #3/perfect score was the lie…

Here’s the truth…


True — Matt, Dave, Glen, Bill and I were in a band called BBC. I think Dave came up with the name… it’s an acronym for Big By Christmas. However, sadly, we were not big by Christmas. We were not big by… ever. We played at a bunch of parties and the school talent show (came in second). Every one of those guys had far more musical talent than I’ve ever had.

True — I was about 7 or 8 years old, I think. We had a volleyball net set up in our backyard, probably too close to the concrete patio. I fell backwards (I have no idea how… I’m super graceful) and my head hit the concrete pretty hard. There was no visible bleeding, but yes, I had to have my head examined. This, maybe, explains a lot about the state of my mental health.

Lie — However, I almost received that perfect 800 score. I missed 1 damn question! One! So I had a nearly perfect score… and I cried! It was just so close… it killed me! And I wondered for a long time what question I missed. Never found out.

Two of you got it right. Though that means you don’t think I’m perfect so I’m going to go cry now. (I hope you know I’m kidding!)

This was fun! xo

Sandra is a writer, sometimes blogger, poet, artist, emotional disaster. She thinks far too much and sleeps far too little. Sandra lives in the Northeastern U.S. but dreams of an oceanfront home in Italy, but she would settle for a non-oceanfront home in Italy. She loves books, brutal honesty, coffee, and the color black. She hates insincerity, beer, whipped cream, and facebook. And she is uncomfortable talking about herself in the third person.

    Ooo I had to read this post very slowly and strategically! Such a fun idea! And don’t worry, to paraphrase from Alice in Wonderland, all the best people are imperfect 😉

    I’m glad you cleared that up! I was wondering which one was the untruth. I thought it would be the 2nd.
