Today we have a guest blog from up-and-coming author and all-around fabulous gal, Nikki Duncan! She has a new release to celebrate and a prize for one lucky winner. Enjoy!
“I get paid to kill people” is what I could have said during the “how well do you know your friends” game we played not long ago at my sister’s baby shower. I wasn’t that clever. I never am “in the moment.” The object of the game was to tell two truths and one lie about yourself and then see how well this person knows her friends. In a room of 50 or so women, this is quite challenging. Even with the advice to make the truths outrageous and play down the lies.
Now, I’ll admit it. I’m a bit outrageous—in groups of friends. I did earn the nickname Naughty Nikki. But my day-to-day life is so routine and often mundane I struggle to come up with clever and witty things to say on things like that paper. So instead of doing something fun like saying “I get paid to kill people” or “I kill people for entertainment” or “I kill several people a year” I wrote “I’m a romance writer.” It was the truth, but not as fun as it could have been. And it was a tad alarming my sister more easily figured out who I was by my lie. Though, I don’t know why she wouldn’t believe that I have tons of spare time which I love filling with running and yelling children. Isn’t that how everyone wants to spend their down time?
Anyway… These women were writing things like “I had sex with the school district’s superintendent” or “I have more guns than a swat team” and other torrid, scandalous things I can’t remember. Oh, I do remember one woman wears a size 7 shoe on her left foot and a 6.5 on her right. That was an odd one. These were their truths. The woman having sex with the superintendent… He’s her husband, but the room played it up as if there’d been a major scandal in this small town, which is sort of strange when you aren’t familiar with these people and the town. Lol The woman with the guns is a former cop who apparently collects weapons and has one on her or in her purse at all times. Not what I think of when I picture a grandmother, but I liked her immediately. I had no clue my sister’s friends were so colorful, but shouldn’t have been surprised.
If I was playing the game as if I were Kami from my latest release SCENT OF PERSUASION I could see this game being way fun.
Her three might be something like:
~ I have an aversion to suited, white-collar men.
~ I’ve had sex for money.
~ I faced my first penis at age 7. He was my best friend. We were in a shed behind the house. Nothing happened.
So let’s have some fun. Tell me two truths and one lie about you. Let’s see if we can guess which are lies and which are truths.
Here are my three:
~ I’m a practiced seductress.
~ I’m techie stuff phobic.
~ I’m a 35 year old wife of almost 16 years and mom of two.
