Brilliant Disguise

Tell us about a time when someone had you completely fooled, where the wool was pulled right over your eyes and you got hoodwinked, but good. Was it a humorous experience or one you’d rather forget? What was the outcome?

Now then, this one has got me puzzled because I am surprised I can’t think of anything! I can think of a few small things such as a play on words when one of my colleagues was asking me if I wanted a budgie. “It’s going cheap” he said. “No, honestly I don’t want a pet at the moment.” The conversation carried on in that vein for far too long until I realised the pun.

I wasn’t fooled by the guy looking to hide his Nigerian grandfather’s millions though. Go me.

I think to be fooled (properly fooled) it would need to be something I really care about and I can really only think of things relating to friends and family that fall in to that category. If anything comes to mind later I might revisit.

I’ll tip my hat to the new constitution,
Take a bow for the new revolution,
Smile and grin at the change all around.
Pick up my guitar and play,
Just like yesterday.
Then I’ll get on my knees and pray
We don’t get fooled again.

Won’t Get Fooled Again by The Who
