Survival mechanism, malicious equivocation, or blind confidence?

Well that all depends, does it not? On whether you're faking your way through an essay test, selling a piece of prime swamp river front property*, or leading a group of classmates through the woods at age 8 and allaying their city-slicker fears of being lost by convincing them that you know exactly where you are going. Heh...

Not that I would do any of those things.

But the last scenario I find most interesting. Perhaps because it is the most flattering of the three, perhaps because it is evidence of an apparent ambivalence that existed in my pre-pubescent psyche. Somehow, I was both socially inept and full of myself.

And if only Al Gore had gotten off of his ass and invented the internet a few years earlier, I would have known then what I know now... I wasn't a freak, just part of an elite, attention-seeking, epicurean fraction of society who would one day be known as bloggers.

(*Disclaimer: This particular purchaser not only wanted the swampland, but he has my url, so it was actually a poor example. Hey, like I'd share do anything unethical!)

ยป Bad Bad Juju links with: Bullshitting ?

Ha ha ha! I live in Florida, land of swamp property, and I have a real estate license. It is only by the good grace of Allah I don't take all these Yankee rubes to the cleaners.

Because I am a humble soul. Or something like that. Lookit: the entire state is a quivering, queasy mass of termite nests and sinkholes. It will all be gone in 200 years. C'mon down. Let's make some money.

200 years ? Is that all?

Key, I know you. You could charm a snake right out of its skin. I've seen you in action.

That ain't "bullshitting," darling. That's charm. And you're hearing that from an expert.
