Seven Deadly Sins

The Matron is forever dropping the meme ball! She's been tagged a few times but has discovered she's thematically challenged.

But one of the Matron's favorite neighbors recently tossed her a little riff on the Seven Deadly Sins. Now that's a game she can play!

Here goes:

The meme is sinful: "Sometimes you can learn more about a person by what they don't tell you. Sometimes you can learn a lot from the things they just make up. If you are tagged with this meme, lie to me. Then tag 7 other folks (one for each sin) and hope they can lie."

Pride
What is your biggest contribution to the world?



Envy
What do your coworkers have that you wish was yours?

Larger class sizes and more students!

Gluttony
What did you eat last night?

Excuse her while she removes that I.V. drip of chocolate from her vein. Uh, where were we?

Lust
What really lights your fire?

He'll keep the boots on and they'll have that exact audience.

Anger
What is the last thing that really pissed you off?

The Matron does not experience anger.


Greed
Name something you hoard and keep from others.

Secret super effective swine flu vaccine


Sloth
What is the laziest thing you ever did?

After the birth of her third child, the Matron alerted the hospital staff to the fact that she was staying in the hospital--and in bed-- as LONG as humanly (administratively) possible and then she handed the newborn to a nurse and asked for a sleeping pill.

True.

Let's see how Cheri, Jenn, Daisy, Ree, JCK, Sherry, and Suburban do. . . .

But, I don't get it! We make up something for each sin? Please clue me in.

Minnesota Matron said...

Yes - it must be a lie. You make up something! I didn't get it either at first :-)

Minnesota Matron said...

Oh - and I'm not lying about the last one. But it seemed so incredibly lazy!

Cheri @ Blog This Mom! said...

C'mon Ladies,

Lie, as in makeup stuff, which I would never do. Now, excuse me, I must go breastfeed Adam Lambert's babies.

XOXO

I think you are still on the cleanse so I select the chocolate IV as your lie!

Minnesota Matron said...

I'm all cleansed . . . over with that, thank goodness. And popping a cork while eating chocolate.

This is to distract folks from our real dark side, is it?

Jenn @ Juggling Life said...

Is that a hunk of burnin' "W" love there, you scamp?!

The Green Stone Woman said...

I love it when you lie, there's a kernel of truth at the bottom of every lie, or at least a secret wish to do something involving it.

Daisy said...

This looks like fun!! I'll see how outrageous I can be.
