Truth or Fiction?
Willow did this on her blog so I wanted to try it. I am listing ten things about myself, one of them is NOT true. Take a guess which one is fiction. (I guessed correctly on Willow's list :)) I'll post the answer in a couple of days.
In 1967 I signed something or other, some political list I think, about the Black Panther's. (True. Another who knows why event of my young years. Standing on a street corner, people come up with the list or whatever. I sign. Odd, as I rarely before or since have signed anything political)
I used to walk around San Francisco alone at four am with nary a care. (Boy was I lucky! But yes, I did this. I guess my guardian angel hovered over me. This was back in the late 60's. Was it safer then?)
I almost got kidnapped by a couple of con artists. (I don't know why I went to the cafe with this man and woman. Well I could make this more truthful by saying I threw some money in the air for fun and they picked it up. Then I wanted it back of course. Once in the cafe they began saying very weird things and I wanted to leave but they had me blocked in. Long story short a cop entered the cafe and they quickly left, setting me free. Although i never recovered my money.)
I once imbibed an illegal substance. (Probably imbibed was the wrong word as it implies drinking. But I did partake of such a substance many many years ago.
I made it through college a virgin. (Alas, tis true.)
I am apt to ask strangers questions like "What is the essence of your soul?" (Yes, I am shy. But, I did ask this question at least once if not more. Of course I most likely wouldnt now, in my maturity, but you know then.....)
I sleep with felines. (I guess everyone knew this was true. Cute little snoring gals.)
I met raunchy cartoonist S. Clay Wilson in San Francisco. Wilson met R. Crumb, the creator of Zap, and we went to one of R. Crumb's parties. (False. So Lynn did guess it in the end. I did know S. Clay Wilson who was a mid-western friend of my husband's. Wilson did meet Crumb but that was after I left San Francisco so I did not attend a party with Wilson and Crumb.)
Many wondrous things come my way unbidden: an invitation to cat sit in Paris and money left by a deceased friend whom I hadn't seen for years for example. (I was invited to cat sit in Paris a few years ago when an American friend was over there living for a year. She wanted to go somewhere that she couldnt take her cat so she asked me to come cat sit. However, I did not go. I also did inherit some money from an ex-boyfriend when he died.)
I never pluck my eyebrows. (I never pluck my eyebrows anymore perhaps I should have said. I did maybe a few time when in high school. So I consider this a truth)
