9 Truths and a Lie

I was tagged by Doodaddy for a slightly twisted version of the 10 Things About Me meme running around the Net right now. So, here is a list of 10 things about me. 9 of them are true. 1 of them is not.

Guess which one.


1. I have never been to New York City.

2. I graduated from college a semester early.

3. I love Haribo Gummi Bears.

4. I have a geographic tongue.

5. I had a placental abruption with Declan and he was born via emergency c-section on Friday the 13th.

6. My first concert ever was Paul Young.

7. I have a sister who I have never met.

8. I have a large scar on my left leg from running into a tree in Germany when I was 12. I got 4 stitches, but probably required 50.

9. I have met 3 of the 4 band members of U2.

10. I can wiggle my ears.


Now I get to tag 5 more victims friends to continue the (new) tradition.

1. Trees in OK

2. Builder Mama

3. Mama Maven

4. Bananas & Toddlers

5. Single Mom Finding Herself

Go go go, girls!

    There’s no way in HELL you can wiggle your ears!

    “geographic tongue”?

    I’ve heard tongue prints are unique as finger prints. Does this mean your tongue print is in the shape of Africa…or something?

    I am thinking, growing up in Maryland you have to have gone to New York before.

  8. TxGambit

    Okay did mine. Back to guess but gosh darn this is hard!!!!

    They all sound good.

    I just can’t imagine it would be the gummi bears. ha, ha. I love gummi bears.

    What is a geographic tongue?


  9. zenrain

    I’m guessing you’ve never been to NYC 🙂

    I will throw you a bone and tell you that “I have never been to NYC” is one of the truths. SAD, but true.

    Try again!

    Since you wouldn’t tell me, I don’t think you’ve met 3 of the U2 members…..is that right


  13. monstergirlee

    OK, its been long enough.
    Dex was born on the 16th, not the 13th.
    Pretty interesting stuff Aimee.

  14. aimee / greeblemonkey

    LOL!!!! Charlotte. WRONG. Declan *was* born on Sept 13th, Friday the 13th. Which makes it a lucky day for him.

    NUTMEG got the right answer right out of the shoot. I *cannot* wiggle my ears – but Aunt Heidi picked up on my diversionary tactics right away – my grandfather could!!

    And Heidi – YES! Marabeth and I met 3 of the members of U2 in Miami at the end of college. We met Bono, the Edge and Larry. I have the signed ticket stub to prove it.

    Thanks everyone for playing!!!
