Summer Fact Or Fiction Reveal

Well…. I’m kinda wanting to do this again sometime. =) It was pretty cool. One of the best bloghops I’ve seen. Anyway… Let me tell you some statistics:

My 10th Birthday & Being Sick – Votes: 10 true & 1 false 
My 10th Birthday & Having Fun – Votes: 3 true & 1 false 
And yes, the first story was the true one. Arrrggg! See, that’s why I want to do it again to see if I can get better at this. =) Anyway, thanks for everyone who voted! 
Some random, cool things:
*It wouldn’t really have been that special of a treat to drink coffee with Mom for my 10th birthday, because she let us start drinking {very small amounts of} coffee when we were much younger. She liked having coffee buddies and Daddy doesn’t drink it. =D
* It was rare for one of us kids to get to go somewhere alone with both Mom and Dad, but that didn’t ever cause me to wish I was an only child. 
* One thing that seemed to get several people to guess that the second story was false was that I said my siblings were happy that I got to go to the fair alone. I didn’t ever go to the fair alone, but there were some other places, and as far as I can remember, my siblings were happy for me about it. So yeah, that part is actually close to true. 😉
* I don’t even like fairs, although I did for a few years when I was a little kid.

    Ah, I would be the one to dub the true story false! Oh, well… I know what it's like to be sick on your birthday… I had bronchitis for one birthday and then the very next year I was down with a cold and asthma! Not fun! I wouldn't wish that on anyone else.

    I'm sorry I didn't get to participate in the blog hop, but it sounded like a fun idea, and I really enjoyed reading your stories! 🙂

    Cute idea! I used to play a game like that with my campers when I was a counselor. I think the trick is to be really specific with your true story. For some reason it always tripped people up when I gave more details, and was more vague with the un-true story. It seems like the opposite would be true!

    Isn't it funny that the truest parts of our made-up stories are often the ones people don't believe? I run into this with details of my novels that are set in China or Hong Kong. I'm so glad your siblings were happy when you got to have a special day with your parents. I have five kids and we've started taking our kids on dates. The others seem surprisingly okay with it — I guess as long as they know they'll get a special day out with us eventually, too. 😀
