two facts and a fib

following up on Jon's lead on Expressive Subjects...

I have had more broken bones than scars

I can bench press my body weight

I have written something every day since I was 11 years old.



  1. I'm going to guess the fib is #1... but I'm not sure... could be 2 or 3 as well... some pretty tough choices you've given us here

  2. I am guessing the second a fib, the other two truths!Ha!

  3. I'm with SarahA, nice morning wake up

  4. I'm also going to guess number 1 as the fib. But I'm really not sure between 1 and 2... sneaky fib!

  5. I shall keep you guessing for another day or so... then all shall be revealed .... well, about these two fact and one fib anyway...

  6. Harlequin
    Intersting facts about yourself!
    By the first one I infer you had an accident where you broke many bones, or maybe several accidents.
    You wrote everyday? I wonder if it was out of discipline, habit or a natural way to express yourself.
    Anyway it is impressive

  7. Most people write "something" every day and with no qualifiers I accept that as truth.

    Seeing as you have an outdoors job I would assume that when the out of doors becomes inhospitable you may do some weight training and if you are an average sized female i think # 2 is plausible, especially seeing as how body weight is the minimum one should be able to press.

    So seeing as there is only one choice left I am going with #1. May you only have had 0 or 1 at the most broken bones. Most of my bone breaks never left a scar either.

  8. #1 is the fib.


  9. Thanks,everyone, for being such good sports.... #1 is the fib. I have broken my pelvis, femur, upper arm, wrist, ankle, fingers, tailbone, plus a few cracked bones in my skull and my ribs, ... and a few dislocations and tears... and a fracture... but I have more scars than I can count.
    I will likely do this again soon... this was fun.
