  2. Wow. That's difficult. (Was this blogfest inspired by Writerly Wednesdays? I wonder.) *ahem*

    My first inclination is to say #3 is the lie, but I also wanted to say #1. Hm. I'll go with #1--just to be different from Alex. :P

    1. You're right. How about you and I go to the jungle and do a little zip-lining? ;0)

  11. I'm going to guess the second one is the lie, since the others seem more likely to happen.

    1. You're right! Did you really think me swimming in shark-infested waters was likely to happen? ;0)

  12. These are tough choices, but I'll go with #1. Though it could be #2, because it's not as outrageous as 1 and 3. This is one tricky game.
