I used to run groups to help shy people feel more comfortable in social settings. Basically, I’d put a bunch of shy people in a room and have them practice doing things that made them anxious.
For example, I’d have someone like Koothrappali from the Big Bang Theory practice talking to women. For those of you that don’t get the reference, Koothrappali is so shy around women that he can’t speak to them unless he’s drunk.
Today I’m going to ask you to play, Two Lies & a Truth, a game I played with my shyness group members. You play by sharing three things about yourself, two of which are made up. Then people guess which one is true.
I was spurred to do this by Natalie and her fabulous blog, Fruit & Family. To celebrate he 100th post (you go girl!), Natalie shared 25 things about herself with 5 of them being fake. I thought this was great, so I’m doing something similar.
Let’s Play Two Lies & a Truth
Celeste’s Lies (oh, and a truth)
Here are two lies and a truth about me. So what do you think is true about me? Come on, take a stab at it.
A. When I was in my 20’s, I walked across the state of Iowa.
B. I used to be an avid surfer, but I rarely surf anymore.
C. When I was a child I had a Spanish-speaking nanny and learned to speak Spanish fluently. I’m a bit rusty now, however.
Celeste’s Hubby’s 2 Lies & a Truth
A. I was a stand-in for Martin Scorsese in a TV commercial.
B. I had a brief scene opposite Steve Martin in Pink Panther II where I played an Italian waiter.
C. Debra Winger visited me in my dressing room at the American Repertory Theatre.
You can find our answers at the bottom of this post.
Come Join the Fun!
Like Natalie, I’m going to TAG some bloggers to play along. You can make the two lies and a truth about yourself or about something that you’re passionate about – whatever! And even if I didn’t tag you, I’d love for you to play too.
If you play, you’ll win a new car! And if you don’t play, a curse will fall upon you and you’ll go blind. Okay, so I’m getting carried away with this two lies thing – haha!

My truth is A – I walked across the state of Iowa in my 20’s to help raise money and awareness about Marfan’s Syndrome.
My husband’s truth is C – Debra Winger really did visit him, but he was so dumbfounded that he hardly spoke to her.
