WHEN TWO OUT OF FIVE AREN'T TRUE.

- Shared by a friend on FaceBook.

No, I'm not going to bake a napkin in your pancake, stick a buzzer in your handshake or any of these other things but what I am going to do is share with you five stories about myself only three of which will be true, the other two being April Fool's Day tall-tales. Can you guess which are which? I'll post the answers Wednesday.
  1. My grandad once killed our ill goldfish by trying to cure it by putting Andrews Salts (a remedy for indigestion) into its bowl.
  2. As my first and last names begin with the letter 'T' and my middle with the letter 'I' I hate using my initials.
  3. I've only been to Berwick twice and both times I ended up in the A & E department.
  4. I spent a night in the cells in Poland.
  5. I once spent 24 hours sitting in a bath full of cold baked beans to raise money for charity.
And just in case it had slipped your mind ..... not only is today April Fool's Day  , many of us will also be celebrating Easter Monday so .......

I'm going to say 2 and 5 are false - just because I want neither to be true.

Suko said...

Are 4 and 5 false? I really don't know....

Happy Easter Monday, and happy April Fools' Day!

Hm... I'm terrible at guessing so I'll wait for the answers. Usually those are more entertaining than my guesses! :D

NRIGirl said...

I would think 2 and 4 are incorrect.

The quote at the end is too funny.

I love this game and will probably not guess correctly. I am guessing that 2 and 5 are wrong. I can't wait to find out for sure!

Jinky said...

Totally guessing here ..#3 &4 are false.

Number 2 made me laugh out loud – it can’t be true your parents would not be so cruel! I can imagine your grandad trying to cure the goldfish, so I think number 1 must be true. I also think number 4 is true, but I’m not sure about the others. Happy Easter, Spring and April Fool’s day!

Hmm...I'm going with 2 and 5 being the fakes. *awaits Wednesday post* ^_^

Rachel Bradford said...

I'm guessing 1 & 2 to be fake.
