And You Thought Your Neighbor Was Odd

For those of you that know me personally, you can comment, but please don't reveal the answer ... if you know it. For the rest ... this is just how odd I am. Everything here is true, except for one thing. Take a guess.

I owned a 1973 "Levi" interior Gremlin. I can wiggle my ears. My first husband sold drugs to buy my wedding ring. My left eye is totally blind. I hitch-hiked to Mexico right out of high school. I can whistle loud using my fingers. I dated a guy from a heavy metal band. I can change out a toilet, seal included. I refill my water bottles with tap water. I brush my teeth in the shower. Second husband was a singer in a rock band. I have a couple hundred Barbie dolls. I've never drank a whole beer. I did a wedding crash way before the movie. I out shot a cop at paintball. I had a walk on part in a movie filmed locally. My third husband's family owns tomato farms that supply a major ketchup company. I'll wait, you are going back and seeing if you read that right, 1st, 2nd, 3rd husbands, it's ok, now I'm single. I've never touched a snake. I have done a shark dive. I still have the first pair of jeans I owned. I don't care for chocolate. I had a tree in my house over 15' tall.




I'll be back later with the answer.








** Sorry Mr. B. sgk was right about this **
(but I only kept it 10 months)

This is the first post I read on your blog, but I'm still going to take a wild guess. I guess that the barbie dolls aren't true. They don't fit the rest of the story :)

Joan said...

I'm guessing 3rd husband.

Casdok said...

Its the i dont care for chocolate!

It has to be the Gremlin. I can't believe you ever owned one of those.

Mr B

I've known you forever and I don't know which one isn't true. But I do know that you don't care for chocolate and that you did own a gremlin LOL and that you did have 3 husbands. So I'll be waiting for the answer.

Joan said...

3 husbands. That's subject matter for a blog post during NaBloPoMo.

Audubon Ron said...

You weren’t married three times. Nobody gets married three times. Let me ask, are any of your husbands still alive? We might could have a Black Widow thing going on here.

I been married twice but actually I’m thinking of getting another wife, in addition to the one I have. I’ve recently realized one woman isn’t enough. I got way too much love to share. I’m a two woman kind of guy. (I’m also flat nutz).

I'm guessing the snake thing. How could you have not touched a snake?

Actually, I was going to guess the Barbies, but y'know, that's so "different" than the rest, I can, maybe almost believe you do have them.

TX Poppet said...

I'm going for the whistle. Please tell me it's true, so that I can say say there actually IS someone in the world who can do that.

lis said...

I'm gonna go with 'still have first pair of jean's', specially if you got them as a child :)..
Second guess would be refilling a water bottle with tap water.
Third would be the barbie dolls...

"I refill my water bottles with tap water."

For some reason this doesn't sit well with my gut. I could be wrong though. And I have been wrong in the past, but... I think I'm right this time. Maybe.

Jami said...

I'm gonna go with "never drank a whole beer" because you don't seem to be the kind of person to waste things.

delmer said...

The beer thing.

Fightin' Mad Mary said...

I'm guessing "I don't care for chocolate"

Beth said...

my mom once had a gremlin that was held together with duct tape.

Karin said...

I've known you forever, too, and know a lot of the things are true. (In fact, I think I'm the one who taught you to whistle, which I learned from my mom.) Not having been geographically close to you for YEARS, there's a lot of stuff I don't know about you, though. Sooo, I'm gonna guess either the refilling water bottles with tap water or brushing your teeth in the shower. Or maybe the dating the heavy metal guy??? Or....oh, heck, I give up!

Linda said...

Like Karin I've known you forever and I can't find the one error either. Most of them I do know. Yes to the 3 husbands and to the shark dive. Yes to the "Barbies" and the teeth brushing in the shower. I'm going with the refilling of the water bottle from the tap. You're usually pretty picky about what goes into your body. Hope I'm right.

Linda said...

Oh wait!!! It might be the tree thing. Last time I was at your house I don't remember seeing a fifteen foot tree. You don't have fifteen foot ceilings!!

Nancy said...

Linda : pssst ... Operative word in that sentence "had" ...my house on Ravine Terrace =)

I can even think of a few fun facts to add...but that will be a post later in the month?

Apostol said...

1974 Army Green Vega Hatchback (back window missing) trumps your Gremlin any day sista.

Carrie said...

I'm going with "I can whistle loud using my fingers". I definitely can't do it, but my husband does - it drives my crazy!

Michael said...

This was a fun post. To be honest, I have no clue what's not true, but god you've had a lot of husbands - lol.

(And hubby #1 selling drugs to buy your ring should have been a HUGE red flag.)

Eileen said...

I think I will take a guess and say "I never drank a whole beer." Total guess, but either way, you sure have lived an interesting life!!

Nancy said...

Michael: Ummm, I didn't find out until way later ... amongst other things :/

Nancy said...

Apostol: I bow to you, I am so not worthy!
