Monday Quiz About Me - Find The Lie

1. Has reading a book ever changed your life? Which one and why, if yes?

I wouldn’t say any book has changed my life, but I go reread parts of The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People if I feel a need to refocus some part of my character/mindset.

2. What was your favorite game to play as a child?

Probably Monopoly, because it was the game we played most often as a family game. Dave and I seldom won, but it was fun to play a grownup game with Mom and Dad.

3. What person in history would you most like to meet?

Thomas Jefferson to talk about religion and the constitution. Jefferson donated to all of his local churches, but attended the Unitarian Church, which if you can afford it, follows Unitarian beliefs. I’d love to ask him what he thinks of the religious pressure we have in government now. He was of the opinion that eventually all people would grow and that “everyone will die a Unitarian.” We’re a far cry from that now. Still, I’d like his thoughts on what a modern Unitarian can do to help our government return to its religious roots.

4. Tell us two truths and a lie about yourself...

DO I tell which is which or let you guess?

Hmmm… Okay:

1.  I’ve been the Prima Donna Ballerina

2. There was never anyone dressed even close to like me in school.

3. Although roller-skating was hugely popular when I was in middle and high school, I’ve never roller-skated.

And don't forget to add a 5th Question on your own blog so we can answer as we hop around!

5. So, which one of my answers to #4 was the lie?

That is such a toughie good job Nani, I seriously am not sure, if I had to choose I am going to say You were NOT a ballerina (if I am wrong please do not be mad)

I think # 1 is the lie however I don't know you as well as I should.

Wayne W Smith said...

The Seven Habits is a really good book choice. I will guess the dressing one to be the lie.

Somehow I think maybe #3 is the lie. I can picture you in your little pink tutu twirling around on the stage with the other little girls. I can see dressing differently, but I don't see how you got out of roller skating. It's such a fun thing to do.

As a child, I mostly had boys to play with, so I played sports all the time. Indoors, I liked to sit and draw and play with paper dolls.

You have a wonderful day, hugs, Edna B.

I'm going with #2. I like Monopoly, except it can go on really long in my house because my son won't sell properties :P. Have a great week!

I have no idea, but I'll guess that #2 is the lie.

My Kid's Mom said...

I am going to go with #3.

Marti said...

If you were a ballerina you probably could skate, so maybe #2.
