When I was young; actually, (who do I think I 'm kidding
? Now too;) I've been an easy target
for teasing. I'm not sure why.
It could be my inherent belief that people tell the truth. And if they say there's something stuck in my tooth, why then, there must be something stuck in my tooth. If they say I'm going to have to walk 30 blocks to get where I need to go, I'll set out for a 30 block walk.
Okay, so I'm gullible. I thought I hid it well, but if every new friend I make picks up on it within a week, I'm not doing too good of a job.
So what I want to know is where is the goddamned sign?
What is it that tips you off, sends you the little message saying 'Mess with this girl, she'll fall for it, easy.'.
It could be my open, frank face, the way I can't hide the fact that I'm trying to fool someone else. I always start to grin; wide friendly grins, pleased and happy but failing miserably at pulling the wool over someone's eyes.
So tell me. Is it on my back? My chest? My hat?
It's probably my face gives it away. Bah.
