Yes, I could be the most gullible person you’d ever meet. Ever the visual person, whenever I hear a story, my mind begins to elicit
illicit explicit images, pictures… turning every word into some sort of vision… I zone out often in awe, often in disgust, often in worry, often in anxiety… basically I zone out!!!
Case in Point:
My colleagues, [we’ll call them] Iggy and Andy, were having a conversation at the parking lot. I happened to be there too.
Iggy: I’m sorry I don’t have your file.
Andy: I’m sure I had left it on your table.
Iggy: But you were there earlier… and you saw it wasn’t there.
Andy: Yeah, it wasn’t there… but errr how did you know I was there earlier?
Iggy: I saw your footprint…
My mind leaves the scene and begins to elicit this –>
My eyes check Andy’s shoes. My eyes see Iggy in some sort of a newfound awe… how observant she is… there I was thinking she was just another girl but… no… for her to be so observant… she was no longer ordinary for me… because for her to have taken notice of Andy’s shoes (which I’d have NEVER EVER done)… observer extraordinaire!!! For her to be so observant to not only notice his shoes but to figure out the footprint as well… that could be what can be rightly called amazeballs (!?!) I resolved to notice people’s shoes and what footprints the shoes might make…
Andy: [Looking at me] She will believe everything we say
Iggy: [Staring at me] Hey… what kind of creep do you take me for….
We all laughed happily thereafter… THE END.
But, dang me! How could concrete floors have footprints!! When will life stop becoming a scene out of a chapter from a whodunit!!!
Gullible gullible dang me…!
