Welcome to Ralph's Weekly Feature: Two Truths and a Lie: Guess Which One Is The Lie?

Each week, I'm going to feature one Active Rain Member, with their photo, and what they are going to do is tell you 2 Truths about them and 1 Lie.

The object of the game is to guess which of the 3 bits of trivia about them is a lie!

I will post the answer in that same blog at the end of the week on Fridays so you can all find out!

It's a great way to get to know your fellow Active Rain members and staff.

This week, we will be featuring: Julia Odom

Julia is an agent with Select Realty Professionals,  based out of Cleveland, Tennessee.  She has an extensive background with HUD, and covers Hamilton County: Ooltewah, Collegdale, East Ridge, Lookout Mountain, Signal Mountain, Soddy Daisy, Hixson & Middle Valley or northwest Georgia: Fort Oglethorpe, Rossville, Ringgold, Chickamauga & Lafayette.

OK, Here goes:

I graduated from high school at age 15.


It took me 12 years to finish my bachelor's degree.


I went to the Olympic trials for gymnastics in 1988 but didn't make the team.


OK, gang. Tell me which one is the lie!

Remember, for those members who guess the most amount of correct lies at the end of the month, you will be awarded 1,500 Bonus Points! If there is a tie, each member who ties will be awarded 1,000 Bonus Points!

(Also, for those of you who would like to be featured, let me know, send me your 2 Truths And a Lie without telling me which is the lie and I will put you on the list - remember! make them good ones!)

Oh, I don' t know.  Let's go with number 3.  If someone likes to travel, etc, I can see it taking 12 years to complete a degree (or if you are working full time and going to school part time), and I can see the early graduation.  The 3rd, is so out there, it almost seems is if it could be true.


But, nah.  3 is the lie.  I think.

I think #2 is a lie. Graduating at 15 sounds too strange to not be true & then taking 12 years to complete a bachelor's a lie!  :)

This is me c. 1983. I was the 1984, Class IV TN state champion on floor & balance beam. But I never went to the Olympics, or the Olympic Trials for that matter.

My dad jokes that I was the youngest incoming freshman & oldest graduating senior. I graduated from high school in 1989 at the age of 15 and in three years I had finished everything I needed except 2 classes. I took a year off to travel (since I was only 18!) and then didn't go back for those 2 classes until I was 27.

So now you know the rest of the story!

Oops, I'm too late. But I would have been wrong, anyway -- I would have said #2 was the lie.

OK, Gang.

The answer has been revealed!

This was a fun one!

Ok...I still have my perfect score of NEVER guessing correctly. Might not be the right game for me :)

laughing at Karen- I take it one month on and one month off... this is NOT my month, so just guess differently from me and you'll have a 50/50 chance.

#1 & #2 sort of went together.  For one of those to have been the lie would have been like breaking up old friends.  #3 just didn't fit in with #1 or #2.  Odds were on it being the lie.

After the huge disappointment with Tammy last time, I decided to make my own guess.
