1. I had Frank McCourt (of Angela's Ashes fame) as an English Teacher.
True - and evidently very plausible
2. I was excused from gymnastics in gym by presenting a note from a psychiatrist.
True - the note said I had a pathological fear of being upside down. I still have no idea how I made that work
3. I attended my graduation in my pajamas.
True - Under my cap and gown I wore a lovely nightgown
4. I fell down twice, on stage, during a school play.
Lie! I was never in the school play.
5. I am still extremely close with my best friend from high school.
True true true! :)
