The Truth Revealed

July 28, 2009

Welp, I fooled ya, but not by much. Let's recap:

Sammy and the Dress--With the exception of the first name "Sammy" that story is 100% entirely true. What else is there to say?

The Seminary--Also 100% completely true. But I will admit, that after some quick Googling, I realized that Hannibal Hamlin wasn't a former governor of Maine, he was actually Abe Lincoln's Vice President--an infinitely bigger deal. What can I say? History's never been my strong point. Bu-ut thanks to this sexalicious hot pot, I'm fairly well versed in world religions.

The Great American Poop Incident--Unfortunately, it's true. Thank goodness I'm so hopeless when it comes to history, otherwise I know I'd feel ever more ashamed than I already do--which I assure you is a great deal. Please direct all hatemail to Amy_Lawson@sheshatonahero.com. I'll be sure to get right back to you.

Sticky Sweet Revenge--50% false. We all know that Texas real estate agents are in fact that bad. But we also know that my husband doesn't love me nearly that much. I did meet a real estate agent who pulled over, told me I was huge, and handed me a card--but then she drove off. Nothing lost but 83% of my already low self esteem.

So that's that. If you would like verification, feel free to contact my mother--she's great.

I got it. I was born, raised, and have always lived in the South. Your story seemed incredible - and evidently was.

Good and fun writing. Well done.

I didn't want the poop story to be true, but I feared it had to be. I'd rather believe that you were stinky than that you'd let some wench walk all over you!

I was wrong. Oh well. I enjoyed all the stories. I think you should do another round. It is fun to learn the wacky crazy happenings of your life.

Darn! I thought Sammy was false because I checked your FB friends ;P You are a smarter woman than I, but that's no surprise.

Woohoo...a Texas girl was right! Can't imagine that could happen. But the others...wow is all I can say!

I had it, too. As for the seminary,Amy knows how I love to show my parent pride at the book store...I still have my t-shirt from there.(proof on my blog)
I do remember when I asked "When is Parent's Weekend?" you told me "There is none, all the parents are dead."

I think we should play again but using stories from Jared's past. Of course, if there is not much to work with, you could have one true and three be lies...

Phew! I feel happy that I haven't completely lost my mind yet.

Who is awesome and knows you well through your blog?

Yeah! I got it too! Having lived in Texas, I could nail the part about some Southern doyenne toodling up in the A/C care, commenting "gee, yer huge!", then asking you to park her card in a house door ... the first time. What tipped me off was the repeating part. And that it sounded alarmingly normal. For Texas.

As for the poop story, well, let's just say anyone who runs or is an athlete with innards could relate.

Seminary part sounded correct, too. Loved the sneaking into the adjacent house via a closet.

Sammy and the Dress? Well, this was a close second. Actually, the story was so outrageous, I thought "Yup, sounds like something that Amy would experience!"

So, Ms. Amy, please do keep up the
exceptional writing and stories!!
