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.
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!
