S'more Sundae With Nuts - Calisa Rhose

May 18th, 2014

So, what's this one all about? Well I'll tell you! We have to list four truths about ourselves. The fifth "fact", we will make up, and you, the guests, have to guess which one is untrue.

So without further ado....

S'more Sundae With Nuts - Calisa Rhose

Layering the truth like chocolate, marshmallows and grahams


Hi Cd! It’s great to return to play another fun game with you and your readers! I adore s’mores, but I love sundaes more!
Here are my facts:

1. Size doesn’t matter. I’m terrified of spiders, any size, or shape. As long as I can remember... If it has eight legs I’ve been known to do desperate things. Once I undressed in mixed company simply because my sister said, “Look at ’im crawl” and pointed at my back. I go into a blind panic and like the Joe Nichols song (only without the Tequila), “Spiders Make Her Clothes Come Off”.

2. At sixteen I trained to be a pro barrel racer, then ditched on my big chance, instead, choosing to stay a summer with my mother. She was furious when she learned what I’d passed on.

3. I have a twin named Tina. She’s beautiful with black hair like our mom and blue eyes. I’ve met strangers who have called me Tina, so, though we’ve never met, I know she’s been near at times. My parents never spoke of her to me, except once when I was eighteen. That’s when I discovered her and asked Mom about her.

4. My husband had to literally drag my into the chapel when we got married 30 years ago. It was three months before I turned 21 and I had sworn never to marry before then. Less than twenty-one was too young to die.

5. I self-published my first book at ten years old when self-publishing was unheard of. It was a huge thrill to actually see kids reading my book and enjoying it. That planted the writing bug in me I think. I was in my early forties when I decided I’d be published traditionally before I turned fifty—and just five years later, at forty-eight, I did just that.

Have fun guessing which of these facts is NOT true. I even made our hostess guess. LOL I’ll give an ecopy of Risk Factors to one commenter just for guessing, right or wrong. Oh, and of course I’ll share the truth with you later. Thanks for having me back, Cd! What fun this is. :-)

It's always a pleasure, Miss Calisa! So which one ISN'T true??? Hey, she's giving away a free book so might as well take a guess!!

#1 I laughed! Not for your arachnophobia, because sister, I'm with you on that one. Especially when I lived in Australia where 4 of the most venomous spiders inhabit. But I got a great visual of you stripping down in a whirlwind of clothes and screaming! 
#2 Aw, am envious that you are so talented as to do barrel racing as I'm a horsie myself. But it made my heart melt just a wee bit to know you did it to spend time with your mum.
#3 Another heartbreaker! How did you discover your twin? What a great story. Tell us more! Unlike every other girl in this world, I never wanted a twin. In fact, I told my mum she could stop having kids after me, and ended up with four sisters. 
#4 LMAO
#5 Very impressive Miss Calisa, another author meant to be!

  1. Gosh, this is a hard one, because every one of them seem true. I have this great visual of your husband dragging you in to the chapel. And your sister seems a little wicked. I'm going to GUESS that #3 is the false fact. Am I right?

    1. I know! I get such great ideas for bits of books from my Sundae and S'mores. Nothing like using real life to create a bestseller! Now, to find time to write... Thanks for popping over Miss Tera, hope you have a lovely day. xo

  3. Wow, I'm stumped and having a hard time with this one. I have a relative who is terrified of spiders, so I can see #1 happening if you have that kind of fear. Of course, maybe you don't and you're just leading us on, LOL. I'm going to take a stab at it and say #3, because it seems so wild to think that twins would be split.

  5. I'm going with #3. What a fun blog theme! Not surprising, since CD is chock-a-block full of fun, and I'm so glad she's willing to share the fun with us in cyberspace. Loved finding out more about Calisa and more than curious to know which facts are true and which one is the ruse :)
