WHICH ONE IS FALSE?????????


I've been tagged by Midlife Mom at Home on the Range for a meme. This one works this way--I am to give nine statements about myself. One of them will be false. Can you pick the one that is not true? Leave your choice for the falsehood/untruth/lie in your comment. Let's see how many people I can fool?

I am a retired educator, having been an elementary classroom teacher, a reading specialist, and an elementary assistant principal and principal. After more than thirty years with children, their parents, and teachers I have lots of stories to tell. Which one of these nine incidences do you think is not true.

1. A third grade girl once told me that her grandmother was just half human-being.

2. A Dad sent his wife to tell me that she and I were to climb into the trash dumpster and find the retainer that their son accidentally threw away.


3. When I was an assistant principal I had principals that talked me into dressing as Dolly Parton and a large blue piece of the candy that melts in your mouth not in your hand.

4. I rode with the principal and some other teachers in a hot air balloon to promote our new school.

5. As a principal I learned to always have chocolate, Mi*dol, ibuprofen, and an open door for teachers in need.


6. I have held kindergarten children on my lap during story time, read book after book to others, and let some take a nap on a mat in my office to help them get through the first day without their mommies.

7. One time I heard a mother ask another one, "Does she (meaning me, the principal) think she's in charge or something."


8. I once encountered a little boy coming out of the restroom, adjusting his zipper, as he sang, "It takes two hands to handle a whopper!"


9. I was assistant principal at a school that had its own groundhog living under the building.


After all these years, I have a million little stories I could tell, but I will stop at nine as called for in the meme. OK which one is NOT true? Make your guess in your comment. I will reveal the correct answer in a day or two.


Now, for the tagging ceremony! I usually just let people choose to participate or not. This time I think I will actually try tagging a couple of ladies. I tag Becky, The Butler's Wife, and Betty, at Country Charm. Ladies, I will understand if you choose to pass on the meme--your choice. Anyone else that has eight facts and a lie they would like to tell us--consider yourself tagged.

Hello! So glad you decided to stop by 2nd Cup! Tammy is great, isn't she? She comes across as completely genuine in her posts. I am enjoying your posts because I'm always looking for bloggers close to my own age. Put it this way--I have no toddlers, but I do have one college, one just graduated, and one headed toward high school. Now as for guessing about your post ... I think #4 is a myth. I loved the others, esp. # 1, 2, and 7. BTW, I was almost a high school English teacher!

I have no idea which one is false but my teacher who was a teacher until she retired has told similar stories. So they all could have happened. I hope the ground hog living under the building wasn't real. Nice to meet you. connie fromTexas

I'm going with number 4 also. I am thinking that a school district would never have enough money to spend on such a wonderful experience. However, I have to say that all nine of them would not be far fetched to me.

OH, and THANK YOU for tagging me. I think this one will be fun. I'll get with it in a few days.

I was also thinking #4.

Having taught for 5 years before having children - I believe #7 could have easily happened!!

Yikes this is a hard one! I guess I'll have to say Number 3 but everyone else is going for the hot air balloon ride.......hummmm....guess I'll have to wait for the right answer! Thanks for playing!

For a teacher, they all sound believeable,I'm sure that you hear and see it all....but my guess would be #5. And it is just a guess!

I also think it's number four. I know those hot air balloon rides are pretty pricey. It would have been a great experience if you did it though!
Fun meme!!

I am not sure which one is true but I am hoping that it's #8.

I'm going to guess #3. They are all just the best!! I look forward to hearing more stories. You probably ought to write a book!!
