THE RESULTS ARE IN
I’m a Big Phat Liar
It has taken me a while to get back to you, but the results are in! If you haven’t read my Two Truths and a Lie, do that first. I’ll wait.
For those who took the time to read through and guess, I hate to break it to you, but you were likely wrong.
I have a silver medal from the World Cup of Cross Country Skiing
True. Bjørn Dæhlie of Norway gave me his World Cup silver medal. It is not gold, it is not good enough. But these people thought this was a gold-plated lie. Got you!
I’m friends with a hijacker
Sadly, this is true. Mark, as we knew him, had the distinction of being the first person to attempt a hijacking on a Qantas jet. He served time in a correctional facility in Australia for the criminally insane and is now a free man. His former wife is happily remarried and a pretty badass surfer who happens to be a mayor.
I met Brooke Shields at the Australian Open when she was dating Andre Agassi
Lie. I was not important enough to get quarter-finals seats or to approach Brooke without being straight-armed. We did attend the first round and saw Brooke Shields in our section, but that is as much truth as is in this lie.
