Today in my English class, we were messing around with hyperboles, which got me thinking…I’m going to write a bunch of sentences after this paragraph and your job is to find the 7 that are false about me. (This means that the other 13 are true.) Just comment your guesses and when I get a good amount of guesses and such, I will post the answers. Let’s see how this turns out. 😛

1. I saw the Twin Towers fall.

2. I fell 150 feet and walked away, unharmed.

3. I have chewed 17 sticks of gum in one sitting.

4. I have sat on a living orca/killer whale.

5. I have slept underground.

6. I have stayed in the same hotel at the same time as Harrison Ford.

7. I have fallen from a bridge and swam away, unharmed.

8. I have been lost in midair.

9. I have been shot in the arm.

10. I have shook hands with Ty Pennington.

11. I have been to over 15 states in The United States of America.

12. I was hit by a car when I was 2 months old.

13. I have had shattered glass fly towards my face.

14. I can touch my tongue to my nose without using my hands.

15. I have had more than 10 stitches at once.

16. I have been attacked by a dog on more than one account.

17. I have gone 3 days without any sleep.

18. I have been face-to-face with a live tiger.

    Um, I have absolutely no idea. I’m wary of a few, so I’ll put those: 9, 6, 19, 8, 7, 4, and 14. Wow, whichever ones were false OR true, they sure are interesting!
    By the way, it’s “shook” hands with Ty Pennington.

    OK, just guessing: False=2, 7, 8, 10, 17, 18, 20

    As Rebecca said, whichever ones are true are pretty interesting. Imagine trying to put those together in a story: People would say, “I can’t do that! It’s impossible!”
