you know, i don’t consider myself a gullible person.  and if you
talk to those who know me, they would affirm that i am not exactly
known for being easily fooled.  don’t get the wrong idea here –
i’m not a skeptic, but i’m also definitely not one to rush forward and
believe just anything i hear.  there is some small sense of
discernment about me.  BUT – and there is always a but – there
seems to be one person
in this world who, somehow, without fail, can always sucker me into
completely believing the words that come out of his mouth, without even
a fleeting thought toward possible dishonesty.  none.  even
when i have been particularly conscious of the fact that games are most
likely afoot this day.  i don’t know how it happens, but somehow
he gets me every time.  

what’s even worse, is that i typically, and unwittingly, set myself
up, walk right into it, and in my ignorance, pick it up and run with it
(translate: think to myself, “oh that makes sense!” and babble on),
while [i’m sure] he sits on the other end of the phone thinking, “this
is just too easy…” 

and of course, today was no different.  ::sigh::   it’s not fair.

(i keep telling myself that one day i will get him back, and get him
back good, but alas, my confidence in that vow tends to wane a bit with
each episode of foolery he plays…)

fair or not, at least i am provided with hilarious anecdotes to
recount which supply amusement to last the whole day long…

  1. Telling us you got pranked, but not telling us how?  Boooooooooo!  Tell the prank, tell the prank!

  2. chris – it’s a long story with a fair bit of background involved, so it really would be difficult to tell the prank.  and believe it or not, the fact that he got me – yet again – is actually more humorous than what he did. 
    zach – yeah yeah whatever.   

  3. Dear Andrea,
    That’s great – always nice to have friends to liven up things.  🙂  Are you sure you’re not subconsciously wanting to be fooled?  Have a great night,
    Sincerely,
    Thomas

  4. I can’t believe you are listening to Josh Groban!!!  I opened your Xanga….saw his face and then had to get up and take a 10 minute break to compose myself enough to read your post! HAHA
    Glad you aren’t afraid to admit that you listen to his music, though.  I will admit that when he sings it gives me the creepy crawlies!
