My Truth, My Lie, And My Fav Thing To Do

I'm in the challenge. What challenge you ask?? Yanno, THE challenge. The first crusader challenge. I MUST tell you in 300 words or less:

  one secret (Juicy secret, perhaps.)

  one lie (Oh how I loves me a good lie.)

  one interesting quirk (Say huh? Moi? Quirks? PSHAW!!)

  one annoying habit (I says, "I don't annoy no one, no how.")

  one of my best character traits, and

  one of my favorite things in the whole world. (Like you guys don't know the answer to that one.)

  Here goes nothing.

  I'm from the Keys. You know, the islands.

  I have never been one to bloviate, but I. Robyn Campbell once swam with a fuliguline Spinner shark.

 I have six boys. Yup, you read that right. The lone girl, Ivy is in the seventh grade.

We homeschool all the way through high school.

I used to sell sea shells by the sea shore.

Besides the Lord and my family, my favorite things in the WHOLE world are horses and sharks.

When I eat my food, I can't let different foods touch each other. And I ALWAYS have to cut my bread with the sharpest blade in the house.

I never tell a lie. (Well, except today, of course.) Blame Rachael Harrie! It is she who is responsible for my crime wave. (She suggested I steal that rabbit, too.)

I can't stand to see misspelled words. It BUGGETH me. And by this I mean words misspelled on purpose. To sell stuff.

I'm entering the SCBWI contest for picture books.

In 175 words. YEAH! *wink*

I may have revealed something about me that isn’t strictly true, can you guess what it is?
So, cans you guess what it is? I'll post it tomorrow. I'll be gone until Sunday, so I'll catch up with all the crusaders and comments then. Until then, live life to its fullest. <3


  1. Horses and sharks? I believe it's one or the other - not both.

  2. Hmmm, let's see...I'm gonna guess you didn't sell sea shells by the sea shore. (Gosh, that's almost as hard to type as it is to say, LOL!)

    Nice job with the challenge! :D

  3. Hmmm, Theresa. You don't think it can be both?? :)

  4. You! Laura! Say a chica cannot sell sea shells by the sea shore? Say that fifteen times as fast as you can. hehe

  5. Okay, I read it but I am to tired to think it through. I like the challenge & crusade. Tomorrow I will read this again and make my comments. Old age, it's a blast, but if I'm tired, I cannot think. tee-hee.


  6. I am wondering about the seashells too. I am not overly fond of sharks myself.

  7. LOL. Well done, bff. I'm gonna go out on a limb here and take the sharks and sea shells as truth - after all, you're from the keys. :-), why would you need to cut bread with the sharpest knife in the house??? lie? Maybe?

  8. Hmmm, you may be a shark week fan! Maybe you do like your food mixing a bit?? Fun post Robyn :)

  9. It's a dream of mine to sell sea shells by the sea shore. No, really! :)

  10. Hmmm. I thought there was a touch of untruth about the sharks myself. Pity, the poor ceatures just swim around aimlessly until humans invade their territory and get chomped.

    Six boys and homeschooling? Robyn, I truly truly admire you! :)
    Judy (South Africa)

  11. I'm going to go for the sea shells.
    Sharks sounds so untrue that it must be true, if you can understand my logic Robyn:)

  12. Maybe the sea shells?? That's my guess.

  13. Ah ha! Not only a fellow Crusader, but a fellow Horse Person as well!! Hmm....let me see...the don't love sharks. They would eat a horse.

  14. Hello fellow crusader! I am a tad bit late, the whole house has been sick all week. So, I just thought I would pop in and just say Hi! :D

    horses and sharks?? really? um, I say you're fibbing on the horses!

  15. Fun entry. Maybe you didn't sell sea shells by the sea shore? :O)

  16. Really great post. I don't think you sold sea shells though. Have a great day!

  17. Me thinks ALWAYS, is the key to a lie, ALWAYS AND do not have to cut your bread with the sharpest knife in the house.

    I can see you swimming with sharks and selling seashells, I would do both given the opportunity. As for "loving the sharks, and placing them along side of horses, I don't see that.

    Anyway...good job with the crusade and challenge.

    Looking forward to the revelation of truth!

  18. Anybody that sells seashells by the seashore is a friend of mine. Love your list! :O)

  19. I'm guessing sea shells, great post!

  20. Hi, Crusader,

    Just getting here, but hopefully will catch the truth on Sunday.

  21. Hmm, I will go with the blade. Why the sharpest? Bread is kinda soft;) Lol! How fun to sell sea shells by the sea shore! I decided I just didn't want that one to be the lie. heehee☺


Leave me a note! :)
