Fibbing Friday — Money Matters

Frank (aka PCGuy) and Di (aka Pensitivity101) alternate as hosts for Fibbing Friday, a silly little exercise where we are to write a post with our answers to the ten questions below. But as the title suggests, truth is not an option. The idea is to fib a little, a lot, tell whoppers, be inventive, silly, or even outrageous, in our responses. Today is Frank’s turn and he wants to know…

    Quite a few entertaining answers. I especially like the use of hirsuit and the memory (funny at the time) of Donald and Melania on an escalator with mindless cheers.
