Writing Prompt: Truth or Fiction?

Writing_prompt_genericWriting Prompt: Weirdest Thing OR What’s True?

I totally love today’s Write On Writing Prompt. It comes to us from CoolChicken3 who gives us two choices:

Write about the weirdest thing that’s happened to you.
OR
Write 3 statements (2 true and 1 false), and we have to guess which one is false.

So much fun, right? I couldn’t decide which to do . . . but I ended up picking the second. So here are 3 statements about myself. Can you guess which is false?  

  1. I have crawled through underground tunnels in Vietnam.
  2. I once almost drank a spider.
  3. I have 6 toes. FALSE

While visiting Vietnam I did crawl through the Ho Chi Minh tunnels which are now open to tourists. And once in the middle of the night, I almost drank a dead spider floating in my water glass. But I do NOT have 6 toes. (I am desperately in need of a pedicure, though.)

Thanks for the Writing Prompt, CoolChicken3! Which one are you going to answer? Leave YOUR answers below in the Comments. And if you do the 3 statements, don’t forget to leave the answer on which is false, so we can see if we guessed it right!

    I’m going to do prompt two.
    1.I am only allergic to weeds.
    2.I have only three fingers.
    3.I have proved that hair color has nothing to do with intelligence.
    You figure out which one is false. It is not complicated.

    One of these is a lie:
    1. I love a lot of music, but I absolutely can’t stand Coldplay… ugh.
    2. I can name at least 21 Death Eaters off the top of my head. (Harry Potter for the world!)
    3. I love Walt Disney– Fantasia especially. He was a genius! My favorites are “Dance of the Hours”, “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice”, and “The Rite of Spring”.
