The truth, the whole truth, and also three lies thrown in for good measure

OK, it's time for me to divulge the answers to Tuesday's puzzle. If you'll remember correctly, I gave six statements, half of which were true. You were invited to guess which was which.

Here are the answers.

1. I've never been to Norway, but if I did go, it would be totally cool to meet a nice Viking named Sven. Or whatever Vikings are named these days. (Bob?)
FALSE. I have indeed been to Norway. I went in the summer of 1988, as part of an international choir. We went to Germany, Denmark, Norway, and Sweden. In Germany I discovered the wondrous substance known as Nutella, and in the Scandinavian countries I learned how to keep a straight face while eating raw fish for breakfast.

2. My living room contains a cello, a harp, a keyboard, a french horn, and a dulcimer.
Totally TRUE! It has all those things. Here's a picture I took a few years ago.

3. There are things in my freezer that have been there for ten years.
Sadly, this is also true. Trust me, you were probably better off not knowing this.

4. Once, I ate an entire medium pizza with everything on it. (Pepperoni, sausage, ham, green peppers, onions, mushrooms).
Accghhh! Never! I would never eat a pizza which had onions on it. Onions are evil, and are probably plotting to kill humanity even as we speak.

5. I own two red pairs of underwear.
False. I solemnly swear that I do not own any pairs of red underwear. I have no idea why not. This puzzles me, since all the other colors do seem to be represented.

6. I am not currently on any prescription medication.
As shocking as it may seem, this statement is actually true.
For now.

Most people don't realize that onions are actually a form of medication, so that's two in your favor.

Fascinating. Really.

Well, I'll be darned.

Whall: Onions are evil. Eeeevill.

Marla: I try!

MonkeyMan: Surprised? :)
