Two Truths and a Lie......answer

On Saturday, I posted 2 truths and a lie about myself.
I asked ya'll to guess which one was false.

I have to say, there were some good guesses!

But the truth is......

I do NOT love scuba diving!!!

I am completely freaked out by the thought of what I might come face to face with down there!!  I do love to snorkel, but only close to the boat or the beach and with a guide that is constantly watching for sharks, etc.  I don't have any desire to go deeper!!!

I DID have to have a police escort while touring Shanghai, China.

I was fortunate enough to be able to visit China only a few years after it had opened up to foreigners.  Many of the people there had never seen foreigners....much less those with curly, blond or red hair (the blond and red hair belonged to my friends).  One day when we slipped away from our group,  we stopped on a side walk.  So many people crowded around to get a look at us, it started to stop traffic.  The police came and had to escort us to the car and then take us to our hotel.  
It was my one moment of fame! ha!
A couple of times, when I stopped somewhere, I would feel someone touching my hair.  The women were amazed by my long was a bit freaky!

I DID ride an ostrich once.

While touring an ostrich farm in college, they let some of us get on the ostrich and ride it.
You get on their backs and put your legs under their wings. 
Then you hold on to the top of their wings.  
Or you could hold on to their neck,
there by choking the poor bird,
causing it to go crazy and then be flung to the ground!!!

This was very fun!!!  Thanks Rachel for the idea!

You just never know what you will find out about someone!

Even though I guessed #2, I sorta thought that you wouldn't have come up with that if it hadn't really happened.

And both of the other ones just fit your adventurous spirit!

You did a great job of confusing me!

Sara, you live an interesting life my friend!!

How amazing that you got to visit China.

I've ridden an elephant, but never an ostrich.

I had no idea it was possible for an ostrich to be ridden. I would be seriously humiliated to have a bird fling me to the ground. hee.

I love this meme. If I can think of anything fascinating, I want to do it. And I was right... I totally could not see you scuba diving. The ostrich, yep, I could see that! You are so fun.
