Because it’s probably a felony in some states not to…

Standard

I will mention that two blog awards were conferred upon me. Not since the days of this blog’s youth, have I received blog awards, so, for old time’s sake, and so I can display them on the sidebar and pretend it impresses people, I will gratefully acknowledge that Naptimethoughts.com sent these two my way. I like when they come as a package deal. It saves time.

There are always rules for these things, which are often disregarded or changed at the discretion of the awardee. First, I have to acknowledge who gave me the awards. Done!

Next, I’m supposed to say some stuff about myself. As Naptimethoughts put it so well: “Make up some crap about yourself. 10 5 things that are entirely false, but you TOTALLY wish they were true.” I’m pretty sure that when I got my first blog award probably threeΒ  years ago, lying wasn’t encouraged, but maybe these things have been floating around for so long there’s nothing new to say. P.S. Changing it from 10 to 5 was my contribution for future blog generations. You’re welcome, kids.

I’m also going to change things up a bit here. I’ll list 5 things. Some are true, some are false. Place your guesses in the comments. If anyone gets them all correct, I’ll mail you a free autographed copy of my book, 101 Tips for a Happier Marriage, just in time for the holidays! If you’re not married, the same principles apply to relationships. Or, you can give it as a gift to others. (Or maybe you don’t want my book at all. {sob} That’s okay, too. Just play for the fun of it!)

So here goes:

1. My favorite color is blue, but sadly, everyone says I look best in red. Boo!

2. I have frequently flirted with the idea of dying my hair auburn.

3. I want my next major vacation to be a visit to the ancient Roman ruins. I adore old stuff. (My husband is lucky.) πŸ˜‰

4. My dream car is one of those 1920s mobster cars. So bad butt!

5. If I had a secret skill, it would be that of a sniper!

All right, those of you brave enough to roll the dice on this one, number your answers 1-5 and write T or F after them. After a week I’ll reveal the correct answer and hopefully a winner! Please don’t be shy in participating. It will be very depressing if only three people do!

Thanks again, naptimethoughts.com!

    We’ll see how well I do… If by some miracle I win, no need to send me a book since I already have one. But I’ll happily wait for a signed copy of your novel when it’s out!

    Full disclosure…..after I read them I forgot what they were so just to add to the fun I numbered and guessed T or F without even remembering what question was what number and I refused to scroll up and look!!!!! I’m wild like that.

  3. Since I have only recently starting following your blog, I really have not idea – but why not take a chance and maybe get a free book. I’m guessing you have thought of dying your hair auburn only because I have auburn hair and I have always loved being a “redhead”

    Very few people can pull off being a red head. But I think, with family support, you could do it.
    And red haired snipers are to die for….You got a book on divorce and what to do with the kids? I’d like to win that…
