"Larainy, are you ever wrong?"
After I wipe up the Diet coke that I have spewed on hearing such a ridiculous suggestion and after I have wiped the tears of laughter from my beautiful blue eyes, I will modestly prevaricate,
"Oh you silly, of course I have been wrong before."
And then I say a quick prayer of forgiveness for lying; pondering all the while if it can really be counted as a "lie" if the "lie" is told in the spirit of humility so that a lesser person won't feel so inadequate.
I do recall a hazy memory somewhere back in the misty swirling past where I thought I was wrong about something and admitted that I had erred but then I turned out to be wrong about being wrong. It was so embarrassing!
But just in case, dear reader, you think that you, like me, are never wrong...let's do a little experiment.
Which square is darker? A or B?
Of course you are wrong because you chose A and you don't have my sterling record of never being wrong (except for that one time when I thought I was wrong, but I was wrong about being wrong)
Don't believe me?
Wrong again! A and B are the same depressing shade of gray.
If you guessed wrong, please be honest and send me the $500 you bet me in your mind. I accept Visa, Paypal and Canadian Currency, which is currently beating the dollar all to heck.
