really?

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “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?

i tend to think of this as something negative. i don’t like being lied to or fooled because it implies that i’m stupid or didn’t see that coming. it’s really uncomfortable and makes me feel really vulnerable. i guess it could also mean a surprise party, but i have not had that happen to me. i don’t really like surprise parties.

hmmm, i’m trying to think of a positive hoodwinking experience because i’ve had some where people have not turned out to be what i expected and i know i’ve done the same to others as well, though i no longer choose to live that way the damage was done.

i wasn’t really fooled in this example but definitely pleasantly surprised and thankful. i had a wonderful roommate in college who one day i was laying on the top bunk, it was the weekend- a sunday i believe, and i could hear her up and at ’em for the day, she was eating breakfast and i could smell the syrup and decided to get up earlier than usual. i am not a morning person so i usually will sleep until 1ish on the weekends-not because i’m out clubbin’ it up, just because i don’t usually fall asleep until late. so i got up and climbed down from the bunk to find that she had brought me breakfast from the cafeteria! it was such a wonderful surprise and i was so happy to see it and so thankful for her generosity.

we are still good friends to this day 🙂
