Recently on FaceBook I played a fun question game and it goes like this...
~I want you to comment about how you met me. But, then I want you to lie. That's right. Just make stuff up. Come on...mindless chatter and laughter will keep us warm this day~most creative answer gets a prize!~(stolen from Misty Mawn and a few other fun FB friends!)~
It was such a blast, that now I am inviting you to do the same here on comments...go ahead...it's a fun, free, and funny way to make stuff up, tell some lies and get away with it...here are a few of my favorites...
and ya never know...there may lie some truth behind these eyes!
As I recall, we met while scaling the mountains at Machu Picchu. You were climbing up (and you had your pack mule on your back, since he couldn't climb vertically), and i was rappelling down. As we met around the half-way point, you asked if I had a spare carrot for the mule. I did, but it was with my gear at the foot of the hill. So we both went back down and fed the mule a picnic lunch from our packs while you and I drank the dew from leaves on a nearby bush. Very refreshing, as I recall! ~Jean Synodinos~
Debbie Prude remembers it this way...We both were exploring the Egyptian Pyramids when simultaneously saw something gold and shimmering on the floor. We reached to pick it up, our hands touched, eyes met, we covered the shimmering object with sand and left with respect for the world and each other.
and Nansea Mehlert reveals my passion for red wine...Our rich parents sent us to a Catholic boarding school in Rome. We met as roommates. We could not stand the rituals and the hard core rules. We escaped to the south of France, quickly making friends with artists, poets and chefs. We stayed ...away from politicians and clergymen. Our strong attraction to the Bohemian lifestyle left us happy but broke so we earned our money modeling nude for artists. Living in France, introduced us to the whole wine culture. We immersed ourselves in it. We became experts in the field but longed to return to our California roots. We discovered that the climate and soil in Napa Valley is similar to France's. We took a chance and opened up the first successful winery in California started by 2 women. We've been happy and stayed good friends ever since.
