I might be lying to you. . .

The rules are as follows:

1. Thank the person who gave you this award.
2. Copy the logo and place it on your blog.
3. Link to the person who nominated you.
4. Tell up to 6 outrageous lies about yourself and at least 1 outrageous truth.
5. Nominate 3 creative writers who might have fun coming up with outrageous lies.
6. Post links to the 3 blogs you nominate.
7. Leave a comment on each of the blogs letting them know you nominated them.

I would like to thank Danielle for giving me the opportunity to have something to post today. So, to be quick about it, here we go-

1. I like to lick electric fences.
2. The last time I was hit by a car was on my birthday.
3. I haven't killed anyone in six years.
4. I saved a dog once by taking my foot off of its head and pulling it out of the toilet.
5. I helped deliver a baby in a freight elevator.
6. Few people know this but I was the youngest of the hostages in the Iran hostage crisis. It put me way behind in school.
7. The current design on the postage stamp was actually my idea. So was Windows 7.

Okay, that was fun and yes, one of those is actually true. I would like to give the opportunity to do this to anyone would like to try (I know, a cop-out, but I am running out of people who haven't been nominated already.)

Now I have to go. My boy is sick and I have things to do today. The fate of the world is in my hands. :)


Aaron Polson said...

Good luck today, and I hope the boy is on the mend.

(electric fences are tasty)

Katey said...

Fate of the world, ouch! Hope the boy is in recovery.

Also hope you can keep up that nice long streak of not having murdered, and make it seven years. I know it's hard, but I admire your strength.

Jamie Eyberg said...

Aaron, at least his stomach is empty at this point. :(

Jamie Eyberg said...

Katey, thank you. It is hard some days.

Alan W. Davidson said...

You've always seemed a really handy sort of guy, therefore I think you sure as heck delivered that baby in the freight elevator!

Rebecca Nazar said...

Thank you for delivering my baby. ; )

Get well soon, kiddo. : )

Fox Lee said...

Number two!

Danielle Birch said...

Am thinking No. 2 is true, but No. 1 is by far my favourite.

K.C. Shaw said...

I'm a little worried that one of those is the truth. I'll guess it's the helping deliver a baby in a freight elevator.

(Word verification: nospasta. Nose pasta?)

Cate Gardner said...

I think number 2 is true - it's ringing a bell.

Jamie Eyberg said...

All of you who guessed number 2 are correct. It has been about 9 years now, but it was the last time I was hit by a car (one of many times).

As far as the rest of them go, I can hold an electric fence but I wouldn't dare lick one. I have met 2 of the Iran hostages and have their signatures in a book one of them wrote about the ordeal. I have only been in the room when my wife had our 2 kids and I probably wasn't much help. I am very nice to dogs and I can't design anything but furniture.
