Two Truths and a Lie

After debating topics for my first OCC blog with some friends, I decided the icebreaker I’m using today in my New Hire Seminar at work would be a fun one to use as a blog icebreaker, too. I figure it’s the best way to learn a little about me, and a way for me to learn about you. And let’s be honest, I think the rest of the bloggers have the topic of writing well covered!

My favorite icebreaker is Two Truths and a Lie. For a first meeting with strangers getting to know each other in a lighthearted way helps “break the ice” and you’d be surprised at some of the things I’ve learned about my co-workers!

Here’s how you play. Each person tells two truths and one lie about themselves, then everyone else has to guess which is the lie. The key is to make the truths as outrageous as the lie. The most fun comes in explaining the truths. So, here are my two truths and a lie. Good luck at figuring out the lie. Check this blog entry at the end of the day and I’ll let you know which is which. Feel free to comment with two truths and a lie of your own!

1. I’ve been thrown 10 feet by a bolt of lightening
2. I visited the Temple of Apollo at Delphi
3. I jumped off the top of a waterfall in Jamaica

Have a great week!

    I’m Greek and have been to Greece over 40 times! Why is everyone guessing Delphi? LOL I’ve been to 38 islands already (which is true). So I guess I’ve been busted early! I used mine today and everyone thought it was the lightening one. But, they knew I was Greek.

    Nina – I write the romance novels. You just read them!
    Lucinda – I have to say based on the other comments the lie would be the cheerleading.
    Natasha – Surfing maybe? I wish I knew where you lived! Are there women in B’shop quartets?
    katie – I’d say skinny-dipping. Its a long shot but I do know a couple that did honeymoon in the Galapagos so its possible…Hmmm
    Diana – roller coaster based on others comments.
    Crystal – I think its the deter graverobbers.
    Jennifer’s – never worked in a bookstore
    Jennah – you didn’t say the top of mt kilamanjaro…so you could have gone a reasonable way…if its not that its oranges and chocolate. You didn’t make it out of the hotel room did you! LOL

    3) I climbed Mount Kilamanjaro
