Winning Lie for 2023 Chosen

Congratulations go to Beth Schuster of Burlington, Wisconsin. When told she had won the contest her reply was, “It is my first lie.” I truly doubt that.

“My husband uses a sound machine to fall asleep. The other night he chose an incredibly realistic sounding rain shower track. Imagine our surprise when we woke up to 6” of water in the basement.”
