I'd love to win Randy's new book! The craziest lie that still makes me laugh is that I told classmates when I was a kid that my dad was Elvis's personal doctor.

Tiffany Drew said...

Can't wait to read the new book too! I think one of the craziest lies I told was when I told my mom I was spending the night at a friend's house when in reality my friend and I spent the night driving around with some not-so-good boys. I must have been around 15, don't know what I was thinking! (not that I'd go back and change that night for anything lol)

Lisa, that's hilarious!

Oh wow! Well, when I was a teenager, a friend of mine and I snuck out of her bedroom window late one night, and took her dad's Jeep for a joyride. We picked up some friends along the way, and were out until the early morning hours. That Jeep got incredibly dirty, mud splattered everywhere. Just as we climbed back in to get some sleep (and after dropping friends off and putting the Jeep back into the driveway) her dad came in, asking what had happened to his Jeep. My friend said, "I don't know dad, we've been here the whole time." Her dad looked at me, and I claimed the same thing. He asked where the mud came from. I said, "I don't know sir- we've been here the whole time." It was terrible!!!

Oh man. I'm still so ashamed. This happened at one of my first jobs in high school. I wanted to go home so badly, I faked getting sick. I ran to the bathroom and made horrible puking sounds so that people could hear me emptying out my stomach. I was sent home, but they called ahead to let my mom know so I wasn't able to go to the mall with my friends like I had planned.

A friend of mine once told our entire group of friends that she took a position in Florida (we live in Michigan) and was moving there. We found out not long after her going away party that she actually was moving to Virginia to be with some guy she met online. The thing is, we would have supported her if she had not lied about everything.
Thanks for the chance. I've been wanting to read this!

I'd love to win the book but I'm not known for telling lies. I'm sure my son told some whoppers but none that I can remember.

I've heard great things about this book!

In high school, my boyfriend dented my car, and my dad still thinks it was vandalized in the school parking lot. :)


Nina said...

Oh gosh, I don't have ANY juicy lies! And even worse (or better actually, right?) I don't think my friends have even told me juicy or big lies! Other than the frequent denials of their "numbers" and the fellows that got them there, ha ha.

Linda Mc said...

Love the sound of this book. I lied a few times about being sick because i didn't want to go to school. The reason: I didn't want to miss the beginning of my favorite soap opera when the storyline had left with a major cliffhanger the previous day. (Long before DVR's, and before I knew how to program a VCR player!)

Okay, so in my defense, I never thought of this a lie when I told it but looking back as an adult, I suppose it was. And a big one at that. I told my younger sister (by 2 1/2 years) that she was adopted and that we got her from the gas station on the hill. Yikes! What was I thinking? But she was so gullible (she still is) and it was so easy!

I once took a week off from work and told my supervisors that I was going out of state with my entire famly when really I just wanted time off from work to lounge around the house and not have to do anything at all. Half that time I just read books and drank tea.

When I was a teenager, I told my mom that my boyfriend's parents were going to be home so I could go over there to be alone with him, but of course they were not going to be. ;)

About 5 years later, I wasn't even dating the guy anymore, the subject came up with my mom. I confessed the truth and ended up grounded...5 YEARS LATER!!!!

Thanks for the chance to win.

When I was in college, I was a pre-school teacher, and I used to practice my sick voice prior to calling in sick. Boy, was I good! People have it so easy nowadays because its all computer generated. I think I've lost my touch. Very sad... :)
