Yes, I’m late. But for the record I didn’t know the other girls were posting their reveals on Friday so there! LOL
Anywho to recap, last Wednesday we played Three Truths and a Lie. My statements were these…
- I’m biracial; mixed with black and white plus a smidge of Native American.
- Despite being claustrophobic, I once had to dress up in a Paddington Bear costume (like one you’d wear in a theme park) as part of a job.
- When my parents got married, interracial marriage was still illegal in some states.
- I have a brother who is 19 years younger than me.
So actually, they’re all true. But one has a loophole. 🙂
I am biracial, I am claustrophobic and had to endure a very long 20-30 minutes is a big hot sweaty Paddington costume, and I do have a baby brother who was born when I was 19. (He’s now the same age I was when he was born!) So that leaves my parents marriage.
Technically, interracial marriage became legal in all States in 1964 and my parents were married in 1969. BUT, even though it was legal, it took until the year 2000 for one ass backward state to officially take their law off the books. It was unenforcable but technically it was still there.
Tricky, huh? 🙂
Now go see if you were right about the other lies. 🙂
