I've moved 34 times, but my whole name has 36 letters. It's getting close!

I had just been out camping the week before and used the same bag, but forgot to unpack completely. When they put my bag on the conveyor belt, the security guys noticed there was a HUGE FREAKING KNIFE in my bag.

I no longer have that knife. :/

I had no idea it was in there, so when I got pulled aside with a bunch of security guards, I was confused.

Me: Um... my laptop?
Security: Guess again.

And then I found out I wasn't making my flight.

He is from NC and in law. That means that he went to law school at UNC and everyone knows that they have an incredible lacrosse program. Therefore, that's true. Since he is Nc, it's natural that he'd like the panthers. I vote Joe Gibbs as the lie.

I learned piano, drums, then brass. Never went into woodwinds or strings!

Guitar and piano feel the most similar to me, though. Drums are an entirely different creature.

I've been run over by a bike before.
I'm on my school's varsity soccer team.
I'm an Eagle Scout.

Which one is the lie?

You have to be pretty athletic to get ran over by a bike and live to tell the tale. πŸ˜‚
