I should have reviewed this morning, when I first read this! Anyway, here's my two cents worth! Cleverly oblique way of presenting the information. I enjoyed reading it. I hadn't imagined you as an ordained minister and the Special Forces part doesn't seem to quite fit. I can't choose between those two!

Well, I'll plump for 'Men's Rights Campaigner'. Don't ask me why. A great write, shame you didn't make the word count. I could really sum up my life in one paragraph...

OK Giraff I am sure my neck is not as long as yours but I will stick it out just a shade anyway. Regarding your lie, if you are an ordained minister you should certainly know better than to lie. However, I am not about to question that. Growing up in the streets during the troubles I don't doubt at all. As to which side of the divide doesn"t really matter. You said you played rugby, so I suspect you found yourself straddling that divide anyway. Special forces? If you were hunting Bin Laden in the Bora Bora caves you may have met someone I knew from the SAS, now sadly passed away. Teacher, kids gave an ex Special Services member "hell" -- now this makes me ponder. You were a fighter for sure.. mens' rights... maybe that was a battle you could not win.

You lied about your AGE --- Nah! I ain't going for that. I am on my phone so cannot easily check your word count... I cannot see you getting that wrong. You would not break the rules. So, liar I am calling you on that.

Very entertaining read my friend.
Best
John

Well, Gareth, I can't help it but somehow i don't think you're ordained? Oh, my have a stepped into it now? Great, writing and with a good sense of humour. Yeah, I like fanstory as well for better or worse. I can see that you have a lot of topics that would step on some toe or other, But, Ach well, what can a man do? Ulla:)))

As always, your posts are chock full of personality, and a sarcastic wit that comes with a wink and a nod. you give us hints at what your life has been like, and some of the things you have done in it, but it is done just tongue in cheek enough to keep us guessing, while getting a sense of the different places where you put your energy. There's also a great sense of the personal v. public perception of some of these things, and that comes with a subtle social comment too...particularly when you're talking about men's rights and the clergy, and the troubles of N Ireland. In the end, as with all the serious writers, it all comes out in the pen on the paper. I've always believed that writers, real writers, have no choice but to write. They are really observers and digesters of life, and the world. You do that admirably on this site. estory

Well, whichever one is false, (my first thought was the ordained minister) you've certainly had an interesting life.

Enjoyed this one G,

I'm guessing you never played Rugby, rougher than football and not a choice of someone who loves to write. Your other truths must deal with words. Am I right? Write LOL

Cheers Mr. G;
>Your report sounds like the Atty. Gen. of the United States Mr. Barr's response to 300 pages of documents with only three pages and 120 words after he rejected most of it in fact all of it. Probably necessary of course for his own reasoning but I sure understand yours.
> It's hard to get too personal when it will hurt someone else down the line or indirectly.
> It's a tricky testing adventure and journey to write about something that may, in the long run, because some the repairable harm to someone even oneself.
> Thanks for sharing take care and have a good one new been a busy boy.

What a fun way to put together a piece of autobiography without having to go into great detail, a lot of biographical information was presented. Regarding the not true fact, I had a toss up between liking to write poetry and not knowing much about baseball. And still can't align with either one, so I give up.

Neat idea and well written too. :)

Although you didn't go into detail, I think you must have had an interesting life for such a young man. I Would have joined your fight for men's rights. I have three grandsons. Please just keep writing.
