From Tracie: Three Truths - The Answer

Three Truths - The Answer

Earlier this week I gave you a list of three truths and one lie about me, and asked you to guess which one was not true. Today I'm going to give you the answer.

Here's the list:
1. I do not like different kinds of food to touch each other on my plate.
This is true. I very carefully pile my food on the plate, so it does not touch or mix together. I am also not a big fan of gravy.

2. I love Tinikling.
This is true. In my eighth grade PE class we did a six week course of Tinikling. It was one of the only times I enjoyed PE.

3. Geometry is my favorite kind of math.
This is not true. Geometry is the math I hate the most. Partly because it does not make sense (I am an Algebra kind of girl), and partly because I am still scared from the time my Geometry teacher went crazy in class.

4. I rode down the interstate in a car that was on the back of a flatbed tow truck.
This is true. It happened the night Thomas told me he loved me for the first time. I am still pretty sure it was illegal to ride in the car while it was being towed.

If you share a 3+1 of your own, leave me a link so I can guess which one is not true.

  1. I did something like this for a writing prompt. It was a piece of fiction, but there was a basis of truth to it. I included three of my own truths and a lie.

    1. I don't know how I missed reading that the first time around, because I did the same prompt! I took a slightly different take on it.

  2. i do this exact same thing with my students (i teach adults) at the start of every new class. it's always fun and funny and it's a great icebreaker. also, when i read the second one, i thought it said "tinkling", and i thought to myself, "well, sure i enjoy a good tinkle,too...especially when i've been holding it for a while." but i couldn't figure out why that was important enough to make your list. good thing you included the wikipedia link. ;) and now, thanks to you, i know a new word!

    1. That is fun!

      Let me tell you, there were a lot of jokes (especially by the boys, who did not do Tinikling in PE) about tinkling during that six weeks.

  4. {Melinda} Tracie, I totally get that! I HATED Geometry. Despised it. Worst class I took in my high school career. I'm not really a math girl, but I definitely like Algebra better than Geometry. I liked anything better than Geometry! :)

  8. Boom
    I so hate all forms of math.
    Especially the ones like this:
    Jimmy had 7 apples. Judy took 4 bananas. Dennis had one date. How many dollars does Sam have?
