Four truths and a lie—Revealed

I posted 4 truths and a lie here. You guessed—here's the answers. Thanks for playing along.

I won first place in a costume contest by dressing up as Little Red Riding Hood.
True. Halloween, 1999. I loved that costume. It was this little red dress with an awesome red sequined cape. The dress was a bit on the risqué side so we affectionately called it my “Little Red Riding Whore” costume. I even had a little basket with a white handkerchief draped across the top. Inside were my keys and wallet (instead of a purse I used the basket), some candies, and a lime that I had carved to look like a jack o’ lantern (I called him “Limey”). It happened at a little dive bar. I didn’t even know there was going to be a contest. We just were there—drinking and celebrating Halloween. First place was $50 and I looked awesome, so I thought, “Why the hell not?” and entered it. And I won. Then I bought drinks for all my friends. Side note: The picture is an outtake from some shots taken for a series of fake B-movie covers I did back in college. I didn’t have the knife with me at the bar. Zoom in for a better view.

I ate 7 hotdogs in 10 minutes in a hotdog-eating contest and only came in 4th place.
Lie. I do love me some food but have never been in any food-eating contest. I think I would barf if I had to eat that many hotdogs consecutively.

I participated and placed 3rd in a wet t-shirt contest.
True. Myrtle Beach, June 1997. I don’t remember what 1st and 2nd place prizes were, but 3rd was a $25 gift card for the bar the contest was held at. This happened on a trip that consisted of Josh, one of Josh’s closest friends, and myself. This also happened to be 2 years before Josh and I started dating. Back when we really were “just friends”. Again, I didn’t know the contest was going to be taking place. We just were at the bar drinking and I said, “Why not?” I don’t have pictures of that incident—and have not participated in another since. My breasts are real and apparently they need to be fake for 1st prize.

I was the 3rd place qualifier to be the driver for an annual go-cart race.
True. August, 2001. Every year JA holds a grand prix race in downtown Toledo. A bunch of area businesses sponser a car—which they purchase and supe up to their liking. They also have to find a driver. The business I used to work for held qualifying trials to find their driver (and the alternate). I came in 3rd and only the top 2 were needed. In hind sight I’m really glad it turned out this way. Practices were long and the day of the race the participants had to be downtown at some outlandishly early time (like 5 or 6 am). Then they had to be there all day. No thanks. But driving as fast as you can in this little race car, hoping you don’t roll over, sure was fun—while it lasted. This is a picture of one of the cars—interestingly enough, when looking for a picture online, I found this picture of a friend of mine from last year’s race (Eaton was not the company I worked for).

I came back from "a chip and a chair" and won first place in a Texas Hold 'em tournament.
True. August, 2005. Now this wasn’t some huge tournament for lots of $$$, but it wasn’t just like 5 people either. I was literally down to my last chip and was not going to let this little punk take the money. So, I bet. And won. And bet again. And won. And so the cycle repeated until I took all his chips and the winning pot. I ruled.

Congrats to Tinapopo who was the first to correctly guess the lie. Here are the statistics on how you voted.

#1: 0
#2: 6
#3: 5
#4: 2
#5: 7

While I appreciate the fact that you all thought I was dignified enough to not participate in a wet-tee contest and not pig enough to eat that many dogs, I’m a bit insulted that the majority feels my poker skills are sub-par.

I'm sorry. At least you got third in the wet tittie contest. I'll bet, like I said before, that the top two were silicone chicks who showed more than wet t shirts.

Good game.

speckledpup said...

awe darlin, it's all good.

I'm impressed at your wet tee award though....I've often been tempted to enter the girls, but never had the kahooonas. Now they're tired and sagging and evidently, racing to the floor.

Happy Friday.

BO Snagley said...

so how many hot dogs can you eat

❉ pixie ❉ said...

TF & SP—no need to be sorry, third place is better than last place. Right?

Snagley—usually 2, with mayo, mustard, onions, and cheese. If it's from a street vendor I'll load it up with kraut, chili, and all that fancy-schmancy stuff.

That Red Riding Hood picture is awesome!

I know, I love it (and still have it). I got those boots years before the costume for $5 at a shoe store. They were suede and used to have suede red laces that went up the front. Sadly, I no longer have the shoes.

I also had a nurse costume that rocked. I carried a little purse that I put a white + on so it looked like a doctor's bag. I found a pen that looked like a syringe that I carried inside it along with some lollipops (cuz that's what you get at the DR's office).

Awww, only reason I didn't win was cause I didn't participate. Well, I might've missed the wet tshirt one but still....

❉ pixie ❉ said...

And why didn't you participate?

Lightning Bug's Butt said...

Hey, I was right.

AL said...

MyUtopia said...

Very cool. I once watched a eating contest where someone had to eat a 10 lbs hamburger!

Mad Ethel said...

Mad Ethel said...

I'M NOT A LESBIAN!

❉ pixie ❉ said...

Yep, that's me. Assuming you're talking about the RRH pic and not the race car pic.

Mike ( ex scientia, veritas ) said...

Ah the “just friends” line. I'm still laughing at Mad Ethel's quick second comment. :)

Mr. Fabulous said...

I'm with Al. Very disappointed at no contest pics...

Damn! I was holding out for a titty pic too. I'm so sad.
