{September 19, 2011}   Truth or Dare?

Never been a big fan of the game of Truth or Dare and when I DID play it, I was one of the ones who ALWAYS picked Truth and was picked on for it. I’m a honest person so Truth never bothered me. There wasn’t much someone could ask me that would bother me TOO much where I wouldn’t answer. And to be 100% honest, while playing Truth, how do you really know the other person IS being truthful, huh? Or bending the truth a little, for that matter?

With a Dare, you either do it or you refuse to and get teased for NOT doing it. With Truth, you answer and it’s between you and you alone whether you answered indeed truthfully or not.

The reason I think I detested dares so much is because I came up with some pretty dastardly dares for my friends who were daredevils. I guess I always assumed if I came up with such dares that I wouldn’t do myself, then what kinds of things might someone else come up with for me? I would just rather skip it….

I remember daring one of my best friends to eat a crazy concoction I made and she did it, but I don’t know how she could stand it. Let’s just say I got a bowl and mixed together pretty much every sauce and condiment I could find in the fridge. It was very disgusting and made me sick even looking at it. Even so, my friends were the type to always pick Dare.

Me and my friends…Opposites. I pick the Truth, they pick the Dare.

The few times I picked Dare, I probably chickened out over half the times. Me and Dares are just not good together. In fact, I remember one time where I DID my Dare but ended up getting in trouble by my parents for it. It wasn’t anything worse than any one else’s dares, but mine just got found out and tattled about by a younger family member. Maybe it was a sign that I wasn’t meant for Dares?

What did you always pick in a game of Truth or Dare? As a bonus, I’ll play Truth with you right now. Ask me a question and I will answer in the comments. 100% Truth. Come on, ask away, I DARE YOU! 🙂

Easiest Dare you will ever get!

{September 19, 2011}   I’m Blaming my Husband for this…

I had it all planned out. Get on the computer for awhile, check my Facebook, look at blogs, do my daily blog….but before this, my husband was online. While he was on, he decided to start playing Angry Birds on the computer. Neither he or I had ever played this before. We don’t have a Smart Phone and I had never tried to play the computer version. I had heard that it was a fun game and addicting but that’s all I knew about it.

So he played and played… seemed like he was playing forever. Apparently, he got addicted to it. So I asked what you do in the game. He explained you shoot birds at pigs. My immediate response was, “That sounds stupid and boring, How could it possibly be so addicting?”

Open mouth, insert foot. I got on the computer and got busy doing other things and I couldn’t help but see the Angry Birds icon on my browser. After seeing it a few times, I thought I would experiment, play for a few minutes and see what is so darn interesting about birds and piggies. Big mistake. Who would have thought it could be so addicting?

So here I am….much later than I wanted to work on my blog today. I feel like I have wasted a bunch of time on a silly game but as I write this, it’s still open in the next tab over. AH! Looks like my topic for the day will be much different than I thought it would be yesterday.

But I’m blaming my husband…That’s my story and I’m sticking to it! 🙂

P.S. Do NOT try Angry Birds unless you want to become addicted t0o…this game should have a warning label! SERIOUSLY!
