*If you haven't read yesterday's post, do so now so the following will make sense.
1. True. When I was young, my friends and I were playing, and one day we got the idea to tie a rope to a bicycle and then tow someone on a skateboard behind it. When it was my turn, my skateboard hit a small pebble and stopped. Unfortunately, I didn't immediately release the rope and I went flying, slid about 20 feet and then my chest kind of stuck to the asphalt but my legs still had momentum so my body flipped up and slammed my face down into the street. Result, a third of both front teeth broke. They made some kind of mold and "remade" them, but if you look closely, you can still see the slightly different color of the fake part.
2. True. For one long summer I worked graveyard at a company that archived paper documents onto microfiche. My job was to remove the staples from the files before they were sent to the microfiching station. Getting laid off from that job was one of the happier moments of my youth.
3. True. I went with my family on a 7 week tour of Europe in 1983. When we drove to Spain from France; we stopped in Andorra, a place I didn't even know existed before then.
4. True. Once at Prentice Park Zoo in Santa Ana, California, there was a kind of workshop about milking. That day was the goat demonstration and I had a chance to try my hand at the udders. It was very difficult to squeeze it just right.
5. Lie. C'mon, do you know anybody who has seen them? I didn't think so.
Congratulations to t, scotty, em, dirk and bob for spotting the lie!
