To Tell A White Truth


One of the following is true:

1) I've killed five men.

2) The priesthood rejected me on the grounds that I'm not Catholic.

3) Lifetime Channel has slotted a show for me as 'The Lovelorn Guru'.
 
4) I wear a size 10 shoe.

5) After she ducked away from a premier, Michelle Pfeiffer -- this was in the 90s -- Michelle arrived shamefaced and needful, wet from having walked a distance in a rain, came to my hotel room, and I let her in.

  3. Cad,

    Secrets hold their power only if held close to the vest.

    You've got to risk the gamble.

  4. orfeenix,

    I blush at your wagering on my James Bondian machismo. It's not that, though I have killed off as many as 5 tablespoons of vanilla ice cream at one sitting.

  5. tony,

    We have to concede her the human right to develop along the lines she sees fit. No harm, no foul.

  7. You let me in too, and now it's getting crowded, what with all shamefaced, needful women and dead men. I wouldn't mind so much, except those priests in the size ten shoes keep stepping on my toes.

  8. Suz,

    There's no need for shame, and I chase it from your face.

    After your arrival and departure, I followed you back -- now a blog follower of yours, I hope in good standing.

    (Darn! I thought I buried the shoe size enough to mislead!)

  9. Karin,

    I must admit that it's getting as tight in here as the stateroom scene in the Marx Bros' "A Night At The Opera".

    Frankly, all we need now is a brass band . . .

  10. I'm not sure which is true, but number five is some tasty fodder.

  11. Willow,

    By sheer coincidence, when I was feeding down on my yoghurt and cereal, I tried the remote's 'On Demand' button -- one I never plunge but once a quarter -- and found the Nicholson/Pfeiffer "Wolf", among whose canid hijinx are one or two interior scenes in a hotel.

    Wow! Stranger than truth!

  12. I would love to believe that it was the Michelle Pfeiffer scenario. I will choose to believe that no matter which the truth may be.

  13. Cher,

    Funny. I even know the right answer, and I still choose to believe the Michelle Pfeiffer scenario!

  15. Jingle/Olivia,

    It's hard to find too many people who enjoy my humor, though a few cluster around me at large gatherings when I sit on a couch in the corner with my Dr. Pepper and chuckle to myself.
