Two Truths and a Lie

I thought it would be fun to institute a recurring segment on my blog with Two Truths and a Lie. Here's the inaugural edition. The lie's revealed in the first comment.


1) I have identified a strange phenomenon I call Toe Bouncing. Practiced almost entirely by males, it seems to be an attempt to appear taller when talking to a woman of great height.


2) I once petitioned my state high school athletic association to raise the height of the uneven parallel bars. My argument was that the current dimensions discriminated against tall gymnasts who were more likely to scrape their toes on the mat.


3) I have a mixed marriage. I'm six feet tall, and my husband is five eight.

    The lie is number 2. I’m not gymnastically inclined, as evidenced by the fact that I can’t do a split or even a cartwheel. I think I’m hampered by the fact that I’m six feet tall! And, no, my husband is not a toe bouncer.

    The lie is the gymnastics. You have said yourself that you are the most inflexible person in the world

    Ah, but I'm doing yoga now, dear niece. Still can't do a split but it's now possible there are others in the world more inflexible than me.
