Crusade Challenge! Bring it on :)

For those of you who aren't familiar with the Crusade...here are the challenge requirements.


I've decided to describe to you a typical afternoon here at my house.  Enjoy!



I hung up the phone with a smile.  I had succeeded once again in making my friend laugh by bloviating about the struggles my not-so-awesome character traits put me through.  I sneaked back to my room and grabbed two (never one) candies from my Valentine stash near the head of my bed and made my way to the couch to read a book.   


I got so caught up in the story, I didn't notice that my blade-like fingernail had made its way to the helpless zit on my chin.  (I know, gross!  And you'd think I'd be fuliguline enough not to have them anymore, but I do!) 


Distracted by my kids, I looked at my oldest with a book in her lap and couldn't help thinking about how much I've cherished reading since I was her age.  She noticed me watching and ran to my side.  I touched my nose with my tongue, which made her fall over in a fit of laughter, and we snuggled close like two rabbits until our giggles were gone.

I may have revealed something about me that isn't exactly true, can you guess what it is?

  1. I think you lied about the blemishes on your face. It's probably flawless. And that was great fun to read. I'm still trying to figure mine out!

  2. I think we all know that you lied about how many pieces of candy you snagged. Two would never be enough, I'm thinking a handful (cause that's what I'd do).

    I love these! I'm so sad I missed the requirements and signing up but maybe next time!

  3. I agree with Jen on this one. Might of been a handful of candies, lol. :)

  4. I'm guessing the fingernails aren't blade-like. Short instead?

  5. I think you lied about your fingernails.

  6. I think you made up the nails (unless they are fake).

    Doesn't matter though because it's a fun read.

  7. It's so much fun to read all of your guesses! I'm excited, and a teensy bit embarrassed, to reveal the truth :) Thanks for stopping by!

  8. Hmmm... Do you make it a habit of sharpening your fingernails into a blade? Although, my husband actually did that when he was younger to fend off his older brother's teasing. Maybe it isn't that uncommon... :)

  9. I think the lie is about the fingernails.

    I love the way you approached the challenge!

  10. Your face looks too perfect in your pic. I think the blemish is the lie.
    Good job with the first challenge. :)

  11. I think the two candies is a lie. You can never just have two! 4 or 5 is more like it. Or a handful. :P

  12. Fun entry! I'm going to guess that your fingernails aren't that long.

  13. I love it! Great story. I think the sharp fingernails is the a lie, unless you're like Edward scissorhands. Ha! If you are, that's okay. I love that guy.

  14. I think it is the love of reading since you were young. I thought you didn't like to read when you were younger.

  15. Ooh, yes, Mary makes a good point.

    I was thinking that it was going to be that you could touch your nose with your tongue.

  16. Mary also happens to be my sister. Silly sister :)

    This really is a lot of fun. I should lie more often and try to have people try to find it. Haha.

    Thanks for all your comments! I'll let you know the truth soon :)

  17. I'm going to go with this line as the lie: "And you'd think I'd be fuliguline enough not to have them anymore, but I do" because I'm not sure what being ducklike has to do with blemishes ;)

  18. Hmm, I didn't know until just now...when I googled the word, that it meant anything duck-like. Seriously, when I read the word for the first time, I went to dictionary.com and they didn't have any matches. I should've known better...but for the sake of the story, I'll admit I didn't know it was duck-like anything. Nice call though :)

  19. Hello fellow crusader! I am a tad bit late, the whole house has been sick all week. So, I just thought I would pop in and just say Hi! :D

    So, like I already saw your fib reveal...since the link went directly to your blog...so guessing now would be like, cheating! :D

  20. Sorry about that LadyJai. I accidentally put my main link on the crusade list. The correct one is on there later, but they couldn't delete the first. Glad to have you here though :)

  21. So I will guess too that your lie is your bladelike fingernails. Everyone has a zit or two (even if they don't admit it) but nails that are blade-like? Mine are saw-like because they are so cracked and broken that they have sharp razor-like edges in some places- but yours are blade-like? hmmmm...

  22. I;m guessing you grabbed more than one candy:) Sorry it has taken me so long to get to you.
