Should I be offended?

Well, not a single one of you guessed correctly my lie (please click here before continuing if you don't know what I'm talking about). I don't really know why, but I sorta said that like Yoda.

Are you ready to know way more than you ever wanted to know about me? I think you will see that it is all much less scandalous than I made it sound. At least I hope so.

#1 - I used to sneak out the bedroom window in the middle of the night to go meet my boyfriend and then sneak back in before morning.

TRUE. But it was quite innocent. The summer I turned 15. I liked a boy who was the cousin of my brother's best friend. Does that make sense? Boy and his cousin would walk up to our house, and my brother and I would sneak out the window (we had really strict parents - sorry mom and dad, but you know it's true - and had to get creative when it came to having a social life). My brother and Boy's cousin would take off to do 13 year old mischief, and Boy and I would hang around my dad's apple orchard. And we never did anything bad! He was my first kiss and that didn't even happen until the end of the summer. Then school started and he dumped me. The end.

#2 - I once kissed 2 different boys in the same night. And they were best friends.

TRUE. Although not quite as innocent as number one. I was at an after school activity my senior year. I think it must have been a they call them "stomps" everywhere, or just in Utah? Anyways, basically a "non-date" casual dance. I sorta liked this boy named Jake. I thought he sorta liked me too. He kissed me and then told me he just wanted to kiss me, not be my boyfriend. Thus I was first introduced to the concept of "friends with benefits". Yes I was almost 18 - and a little naive. I got a ride home with a friend, who was also Jake's close friend. Coincidentally this friend happened to be Boy from the above story. He brought me home, and then he kissed me. I shouldn't have kissed him, but I guess I still had a little thing for him - being my first real boyfriend and all. Then I told him I didn't want to be his girlfriend. He said the feeling was mutual. The end.

#3 -I met my husband when I was 18 - cruising State Street, and he came back to my friends house with me and stayed all night.

TRUE. But also more innocent than it sounds. I DID meet my husband when I was 18. I was never a girl that went downtown and "cruised state". However I had an awesome girlfriend who thought such activities were quite enjoyable. I had just purchased my first car (I was not allowed to have a car until I turned 18), a 94 Ford Mustang. I went to my awesome girlfriend's house to spend the night cuz her parents were out of town, and she and her sister coerced me asked me nicely to take my new car downtown to cruise State Street. Funny how I'm the one who got a husband out of it. ;) Now, the story of this night is quite amusing, and a blog post all in itself. One for another day. I will tell you that at the end of the night (actually the wee hours of the morning), he came back to my friends house with us, and my friend and her sister conveniently decided to turn in for the night. Leaving Future Hubby and I to chat and watch Aladdin for the rest of the morning. He was a perfect gentleman, and gave me a chivalrous hug before he left to go home. NOTHING HAPPENED!! But we were engaged 6 weeks later, and married 3 months after that.

#4 - I believe in, and practiced abstinence before marriage.

TRUE. I may have been a little too free with my kisses, BUT THAT'S ALL!

#5 - I kissed my best friend's boyfriend at the baseball park one night when they were in a fight.

Let me just say that I am highly offended that any of you would think I would actually do this to my best friend. Seriously! I am and always have been and extremely LOYAL friend. I never kissed a friend's boyfriend. However I DID get accused of this - I think it was Junior year. It was not a fun experience.

#6 - I had a boyfriend at the time I met my husband.

TRUE. Mostly. I was in a pretty dysfunctional relationship. For almost a year. I was 18 - he was much older than me. The age difference really started to show after first few months. We were constantly fighting/breaking up/making up. I had never been in a relationship like that. I kept thinking I needed to get out of the relationship, but never quite had the courage to follow through. During the week we had an ugly fight and I said maybe we should date other people - but was too chicken to break it off completely. He disagreed and we never actually agreed to what our relationship status was going to be. So technically we were still together when I met Future Hubby that weekend. Needless to say, I had to quickly break it off completely after meeting him. Ex-boy is how married as well, and I hope happily.

So there you have it. Judge me if you will - but I hope you don't! Please say you understand and don't think I'm a complete skank!

I couldn't decide between #1 and #5! Both seemed equally fantastic as far as what I know of your personality/character. With explanation about #1, that seems more like you. ;)

I actually knew the right answer and therefore did not vote. =)

Macey said...

Well at least nobody guessed it!
Lots of people actually thought I DID suck pee out of a rug. So what if it was true. Whatever!
Sound like Yoda; you do.

I think you're just cute as a button!! I definitely don't think you're a skank. Maybe i misread that. I feel like I should have known that would have been the lie. I kissed a lot of boys foo, so no judging here.

Boulter trouble said...

Wha?!! Coercion? I dont remember it that way. :)
Nonetheless......IF it was coercion, well then my friend, you are WELCOME! :)
Also, who is the Jake that you are talking about in here?
You failed to mention that it was a WHITE ford mustang. It was HAWT! :)

I'm such a loser friend. You're even on my blogroll.

Well, after reading this, I'm positive that you would NEVER want to be friends with me. Did you read mine? I was a naughty girl. You were such a good girl. I feel ashamed. If I could re-do my teenage years, I would. I wouldn't. They were HORRIBLE but I'd like to think that I would behave a little bit better.

I loved reading about how you met your hubby and WOW what a quick engagement. GOOD FOR YOU!

If you think this is skanky....well I havent spilled all those details about my own past was skanky!

Myya said...

Did I miss your origional post??? I have been mia for a couple weeks & I don't remember reading it. SADS!!! Maybe I would have been the one to guess right, then you'd give me a gold star & I'd be suuupah cool! Dang it!
I love that you met & married your hubby after 3 months... totally kinda crazy, but I love it!
I need to do a post about how I wanna be Morman. You guys rock! The quick courtships, marriages, the commitment to your faith & the bunches of babies. Sounds perfect! Don't think I could exactly get the hubby to change religions though :)

I read the original post, but could NOT figure out the lie. Glad you cleared it up for me. You're such an innocent rebel! Very interesting stories.

Amanda @ Serenity Now said...

Glad you explained yourself, missy. ;) Loved reading the explanations!

Alicia said...

Bahahaha.. Oh my gosh, Xazmin! You are brave, and I do not think you are a skank! LOL

Hey, I have been following your blog for years now, and wanted to let you know about a new blog I recently started with a few friends,

We JUST just launched on the 1st so content is limited, but we're adding daily. Will you check it out and let me know what you think?!

Emmy said...

Your courtship was fast, even for a Mormon... Though I know someone that was faster. Okay and did I seriously just say courtship! His old am I?

Sami said...

You and I are a lot alike! I was a little too free with my kisses too, but I was still a "good girl" .
As if I needed another reason that we could be friends...:)

Shawn said...

I have to go back and see what I guessed...

Well I suck, I didn't guess at all!

You little diva!
