The Blogger Games II – Week 5

We have reached the final week of The Blogger Games II, hosted by Aaron at The Confusing Middle. I won’t lie, I have steamrolled through this competition with a tenacity I don’t think anyone was expecting. I have answered 70% of the questions correctly and have three gold medals to my name.

I am the best.

Sorry, I never get the chance to brag since I’m always hosting these things. I need to get it out while I can.

The theme this week is True or False questions, so it’s time to finish strong.

Again, all of these questions are about Aaron.

1. Growing up, I had a dog named Duchess.
A) True
B) False

This has to be true because if someone were to come up with a fictional dog name for the purpose of asking this question, Duchess wouldn’t be the name you choose. In my head, the dog was named Duchess because they were female and it was a play on “Duke & Duchess”.

2. The first roller coaster I ever rode was Busch Gardens’ Loch Ness Monster.
A) True
B) False

If this is false, then that’s probably just your favourite ride. I watched a YouTube video of it. Even with the two loops, I’d say it’s kid-friendly. Yes, I’m assuming you first went on it as a kid. I was worried it didn’t have enough speed to get through the loops, though.

3. I have successfully been doing my own laundry since I was a freshman in high school.
A) True
B) False

Unless “successfully” is meant to trip me up, then I’m going to say true.

4. I once ate an entire Pop’s Sundae Supreme (a dessert meant to be shared by four people) on a bet and won.
A) True
B) False

I’m going to say false, only because who wants to share a sundae with four people? Surely, this ice cream establishment would not concoct a menu item like that. SURELY.

5. The first time I ever boarded an airplane was when I flew to Istanbul in 2017.
A) True
B) False

No. You’ve been on a plane before that. Don’t lie.

6. I was recently asked to help edit a book about the James Bond franchise.
A) True
B) False

I want to say true so badly because that would be awesome, but…okay maybe it is true? You said about the franchise. So, it’s not necessarily a book by the franchise. If I stay with false, then I have a streak of five false answers in a row, which I don’t like at all. But maybe by now, you’re intentionally trying to make us second guess ourselves. And by us I mean Monty because I think he mentioned in a previous week that he went with a certain answer just to break a pattern.

I am staying with false and if it’s wrong, I’m blaming Monty.

7. At the age of 5, my picture was in the local newspaper.
A) True
B) False

I’m going to say false and assume you were inspired to ask this question based on one of the questions I asked when I hosted The Blogger Games. If not, then I am just wrong.

See, the thing about The Blogger Games is it’s not necessarily about figuring out the answer to the question. It’s about thinking about why you even asked the question in the first place.

8. I have had more than two dozen roommates throughout my life.
A) True
B) False

I think I remember you saying that you’ve had a lot of roommates before, but more than two dozen? That seems excessive. Also, why not just say “more than 25”? Stop trying to trick me!

9. As an adult, I have celebrated two birthdays at Chuck E. Cheese.
A) True
B) False

This has to be true. For what it’s worth, I’ve never been there.

10. The only broken bones I have ever experienced have come in the form of cracked ribs from coughing too hard in a fit of bronchitis.
A) True
B) False

I don’t think you’ve ever broken a bone because that’s a similarity we share.

My Turn To Share
Have you had any pets? What was your first roller coaster? Do you excel at any household chores? What have you eaten to win a bet? Have you flown anywhere in the world? How are you at picking out grammatical errors? Have you ever had your picture in the paper? Got roommates? Where’s the best place to celebrate a birthday? What bones have you broken?

I’ve never had a pet.

I can’t remember the name of the first roller coaster I went on, but I haven’t been on one since. It wasn’t a harrowing experience or anything. I’m just never at amusement parks, and when I am, the long lines for roller coasters don’t appeal to me.

As a kid, I remember being on a bumblebee ride and feeling like I was going to fall out the side of it. Little Paul had to use all his might, so he wouldn’t slide out.

I prefer bumper cars and games at booths, like the one where you shoot water at a mouth.

I am tremendous at household chores, as I have been vacuuming since I was 3.

I have not eaten anything to win a bet.

I have never been on an airplane.

I think I’m really good at picking out grammatical errors. I have a knack for knowing how sentences should look.

My picture has never been in the paper, but it has been in the brochure of a restaurant.

I lucked out with my roommates in university. My room was always connected with one other person, via a washroom, so we had our own privacy, but could shout/walk over to each other just by opening the washroom doors. It was fun.

The best place to celebrate a birthday is at glow in the dark mini putt, or glow in the dark laser tag. Both places have now closed. So, the best place to celebrate a birthday is now at home.

I have never broken a bone.

That’s everything!

Thanks to Aaron for continuing the legacy of The Blogger Games! You’ve done a great job and it has been a lot of fun participating in one of these for once.

    2nd attempt at comment so apologize for repeat if they both show up eventually….

    Paul – your well earned bragging fits you like a perfectly tailored suit. Bravo! Just remember that suit would get old and I’ll-fitting fast so please go back to hosting and give us others a chance to shine again.

    Oh, and please don’t blame Marty on my behalf. The poor guy is always getting thrown under the bus 🤣.
