Live Real. Eat Real.

The Truth, And Nothing But the Truth. Sort Of.

TrueNo Random Tuesday Thoughts today – I’m going to tell which statement from my Friday post is false.  And after reading your guesses, I have to say, I’m a bit nonplussed.

Do I look like a knife-wielding, bungee-jumping psycho?

I guess so…y’all know me too well.  Anyhoo, without further ado, here are the answers.

1.  I once attacked my husband with a steak knife.  TRUE.

Well, see now, attacked is a strong word.  I once got so mad at the ex-husband – the only human being in the world capable of making me angry enough to commit murder – that I grabbed what I thought was a handful of wooden spoons and plastic spatulas and hurled them at him across the kitchen. Fortunately (or unfortunately, depending on how I’m feeling about him at the moment), the steak knife hiding in there only grazed the top of his head.

Some time I’ll have to get around to telling the story about how I kinda sorta accidentally stabbed him in the chin with a fork.

2.  I was once a line cook at an upscale French bistro.  FALSE

As much as I love to cook, I’ve never worked in a restaurant.  I’ve managed a professional retail bakery, where I also served as the head cake decorator, but nope – not a restaurant.  How come so many of you guessed this??

3.  I have gone bungee jumping.  TRUE.

I’ve written before about my experiences with internet dating and how I met a few nice men.  One of the nice men I dated was several years younger than me – and quite adventurous.  To this day I don’t know how the hell he talked me into bungee jumping, especially when you consider that I am terrified of heights, but he did.  I’d love to be able to say it was at some exotic location, like over a tropical waterfall, but alas – it was at an amusement park.

So there you have it…more insomnia-curing facts about me.

Have a lovely day, y’all.
