Which is the lie, which are the truths?

1. In November 1999 I was living alone after my roommate had moved out, and I brought in groceries, went about putting them away, got caught up in a phone call, and went into my bedroom and was there til after midnight when I walked back out to brush my teeth before bed, and realized I had never shut my front door, and it had been wide open the last four hours.

2. At age sixteen I was allowed to go see David Bowie touring with NIN in Columbus, Ohio, in 1995, on a school night: ON A SCHOOL NIGHT.

3. When I was thirteen I was alone at my grandparents' house tending to my grandma's plants for her while she was on vacation and my ne'er-do-well oldest paternal cousin showed up with his drug dealing acquaintance, and instead of avoiding them I stubbornly continued on. Long story short the dealer handed me a baggie with a lot of cocaine in it and asked if I knew what it was, so I instantly dropped it, it came open and partly spilled out, making my cousin burst out laughing and inspiring the dealer to cuss me out while he shoveled  cocaine back into the baggie with a credit card.
What does not kill me makes me stranger.

I'll guess that number 3 is false and the other two are true.

1. Is the lie. I'm way too paranoid to leave my door open like that.

Your turn?

1.  I once carried a four foot section of mammoth tusk a mile back to my car.
2.  The most complete arrowheads I have ever found in one day is 44.
3.  I held an Australian death adder in my hands once, albeit briefly.

You are correct, madam! While I have found a seven foot tusk, it was so poorly preserved that the biggest section we got out was barely over a foot.

1. Back in the 1970s my late grandfather introduced my ex-uncle to a hitman from Chicago Grandpa hired to kill him unless his former son in law wisened up regarding certain matters going on between them. (He wisened up fast.)

2. I was born a week and a half early in a sort of storeroom off a hotel lobby while my mother was waiting for an ambulance to come. She'd been out doing last-minute Christmas shopping with my grandmother.

3. I once saw a man fall about fifteen feet while climbing down off a high wire at the Shrine Circus. (Someone turned the spotlight off him and he stumbled. He wasn't badly hurt.)

gonna guess number 2.

1. When I was a young child, I crawled out of the second story window of my bedroom and crawled over the roof to the side of the house to get some snow (I wasn't allowed outside at the time.)  The first time was successful, the second I slide right off the roof but somehow landed w/o injury in the front of the yard.

2. When I was ten we had an Asian family living nearby and (to my regret) I used to pick on their daughter who was about my age.

3. Once after cutting up a freshly cooked pizza, I accidently dropped the cardboard and one slice landed (toppings down) right on my foot.
