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 - Joanne Wadsworth
Layering the truth like chocolate, marshmallows and grahams
1. I had a deadly melanoma removed at the age of five.
2. In hospital, after having my tonsils out as a child, my parents mistook another girl in the same ward as being me. They hugged her, and gave her my get-well goodie bag.
3. My parents left the country when I was fourteen, and didn’t return until I was sixteen. I was raised by another family during that time.
4. I started playing the drums because I thought I’d look cool, but quickly learnt they were a fabulous stress-reliever too.
5. My hubby is the first man I kissed.

I have to say honestly that I enjoy my S'mores much more than I ever thought I would. Because in their 4 facts, and often in the make-believe of the fifth, the author becomes more to me than merely a colleague or an online friend. It's the way they can fill the outline of themselves so fully with only a few short words. And even when I thought I knew them pretty well, having followed their blogs or their stories, these tidbits, these little juicy pieces of wonder, will keep me supporting them for years to come.
So here we go:
#1 Makes me a little teary to think any child has to go through that but so glad you are still with us today Miss Joanne!
#2 That would have sucked! Maybe they were just so emotional they couldn't see clearly through their tears?
#3 Wow! Your childhood was incredible, or perhaps incredulous? We'll let the followers decide! I'm thinkin' I wouldn't have minded at 14 to have been raised by another family, but then, I'm sure it sounds better to a teenager than in actuality.
#4 I hooked up with my hubby the first time after a masquerade ball. He was lookin' mighty hot playing his air-drums in a tux at the next table. LOL I can see the appeal Miss Joanne!
#5 Now, I'm thinking this can't be true. But I know you were one of the Nut "believers" in first love, so that's a hard call. I mean, not even a spin the bottle kiss when you were a tween? My first kiss was a guy named Eric who had a fabulous cowlick at his forehead. But I wasn't even thinking of that, only that first press of the lips. Sigh. So long ago, yet still SO important.
Okay, so which one is the falsehood? Miss Joanne is willing to give away a copy of Highlander's Magic (Yes, please!) to one correct guesser. But, any correct guess goes into the draw, so guess away!
I love, love, love (can't say enough) Scottish time-travel. I dream it will still happen to me one day. You can't go wrong with this book. Check it out!
