As today is George Washington’s actual birthday, I will give the truthful answer to my “I Cannot Tell a Lie” post of last week.
In review, my two truths and a lie were:
1. I used to have a parakeet that figured out how to escape his cage, and my cat ate him while I was at a Fourth of July carnival.
2. When we were young, several of my siblings and I dressed up our little sister as Uncle Sam, put her on top of the newel post in the front hall and left her there.
3. I once was driving my car and a firework shot through the open window and caught the back seat on fire.
The truth is that the firecracker in the backseat was the lie.
Update: Little Sister was not outwardly scarred from her experience on the newel post, and I still have one of poor Budginald’s tail feathers. I forgave the cat, because that is what cats do. I think my sister has forgiven her siblings, as well, for similar reasons 🙂
