Bald Faced Liar-revisited. FWIW.
1. TRUE -My husband lived in New Hope, PA and Liza Minnelli was there in the summer of 1964 playing at the Bucks Country Playhouse in Time Out For Ginger. They hung out after the show for the length of its run. Liza would stand up and belt out a song at the least provocation. She continues to do so.
2. TRUE- My brother and two friends borrowed an older brother's car at age seventeen and set out for Woodstock. They were stopped as they cruised through the town and the car searched. A very small amount of grass was found in the glove compartment. They spent the night in jail. The judge buried the paperwork, which turned out to be trouble later on when my brother got a government job and they did a background check and something stuck out. Nobody knew about the judge's desk drawer.
3. FALSE -Although we attended the same institution, I never dated Michael Ford. He was there a few years later. Well, make it a decade.
4. TRUE-In a misguided attempt to elope at age 18, which took us across eight states via a Greyhound bus, a boyfriend and I finally found ourselves in Virginia and entered his house while his parents were away on a cruise. The neighbor across the street saw the garage door opened and called the cops, believing the boy to be at college in Massachusetts. They arrived with guns pulled. And as Todd pointed out, the ardor faded after this.
I should have dated Michael Ford. He probably didn't do things like this since he became a minister.
5. TRUE-I had a series of books as a child where the animals were dressed like humans. The one with a goat dressed like a grandmother scared me the most. This began to haunt me and has ever since. If I see a dog with a coat on, I have to look away. I can barely tolerate Donald and Mickey. Does anyone else remember this series? No, wait a minute. I don't want to know.
6. TRUE-Megan moved to Brooklyn in 1994. On visiting her, we looked out the window and saw a guy wearing gloves in the summer entering the apartment across from hers (the building was U-shaped). The cops came, wrote our story on his palm, and as we all looked out the window at the window in question, the guy exited from the same window. They chased him down in the alley, cutting him off at the end. He was released later though. He had stolen too little to be worth prosecuting.
7. TRUE-Yep, my great grandfather, an orphan, worked his way through college and law school, won elected office and couldn't resist paving his own street in the Kensington area of Philly first.
So politicians were always dumb or corrupt or something, I guess.
