Fib Found!

My fib was easily found. Most everyone guessed right away. If you didn't, here is the big reveal. :)

1. I once attended a taping of the Oprah show. It was soap opera hunk day, and after the show, I got to meet Oprah and take a tour of Harpo Studios.

True! I went with my sister-in-law, and while we were there, we met up with one of her college friends who worked for Oprah. She gave us a tour and introduced us to Oprah. I also got to meet 'Jack' from All My Children.

2. I was in Berlin when the wall came down and actually helped remove part of the wall with a hammer and chisel.

True! After seeing video on the news of people dancing on the Wall, I drove all night from my home in Kaiserslautern to Berlin. Here I am doing my part:

3. I was taught how to be an etiquette teacher by Liv Tyler's grandmother.

True! I attended the Protocol School of Washington in 1997. The school was founded and run by Dorothea Johnson who happens to be Liv Tyler's gran.

4. I jumped out of a plane to celebrate my 21st birthday.

Fib! I am horribly afraid of both flying and heights.

5. I was crowned Little Miss Zip Code by the postal service to promote the use of zip codes in the early 70s.

True! But I must admit that nepotism was involved. My granddaddy was a post master, and my grandmother made my little uniform. I did have my picture in the newspaper, though. I have no idea who the man is with me in the photo. And please ignore the flashing underpants!

Thanks to everyone who played along!

I'm impressed! The closest I ever got to the Berlin wall was walking past boxes of chunks of it for sale in a department store (yes, I thought it was weird, too). Cute photo--I'm sure you earned your title fair and square.

Amber said...

Fabulous! I wish I had played. :) As Nuria already said, you've led a very interesting life!

Nuria, thank you! I was finally able to get back to your blog. It wouldn't load for me for ages! I've added it to my list. :)

TL, in the department store? And I'm pretty sure that contest was rigged.

Amber, thank you!

gracefruit said...

Hi Liz! Sorry I missed this. Hope you're well.

Teresa, I was hoping you'd give this a go. ;)

I hate I missed out on the Fib contest. I actually didn't know that you were Little Miss Zip Code. You were mighty cute.

Thanks, L! :) I don't think I actually won any contests, though!
