Fibbing Friday — Flying Solo

Di (aka Pensitivity101) and Melanie (Sparks From a Combustible Mind) 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. Di is flying solo at the moment, as Melanie is taking an indefinite hiatus from blogging due to ill health. Anyway, here are Di’s fib generators.

1. What is the most intelligent at on Earth?

The bookworm.

2. Why did we really go to school?

Go give our parents a break during the day.

3. What did teachers do during recess?

Dirty dancing.

4. How did you get to school?

Magic carpet ride.

5. What was life like before the Internet?

Peace on Earth, goodwill towards all.

6. What is the best thing about social media?

It gives an opportunity for people with no perceivable skills or talents to get rich by becoming “influencers.”

7. What is your favorite thing to put chocolate sauce on?

My wife.

8. Doctors were all wrong…humans don’t need water. What do they need?

Ben & Jerry’s Stephen Colbert’s Americone Dream ice cream.

9. Dolphins are not mammals. What are they?

Players on an NFL team in Miami.

10. There is a Lost Dutchman’s Mine, but where is it?

It’s where the lost Dutchman is, with Melanie on her hiatus.

    I went to school, preschool and then starting first grade early, so my mother could be a full-time teacher (not where I was going to school). My first year of pre-school was a half day, so Mom worked part-time. My second year of pre-school, school was still a half day, but I went to a teacher’s (and fellow student’s) home for the rest of the day. Then, I started first grade.

      Oops… I see I missed the point of fibbing a little to a lot. So: It was because my mother couldn’t stand me. Actually, she has told me a story, in latter years, of my being in danger for my life because a canary died in my bedroom (due to a gas leak in the basement below. I think it was a wish.
