SOVERNITY,LEADING

AS A CHILD, I USED TO GET BY ON A BRISK BUSINESS IN STORYTELLING…. FROM MY FERTILE, ALBEIT OVERACTIVE IMAGINATION WOULD SPRING SELF-MADE STORIES THAT I WOULD SELL AS TRUTH TO MY WIDE-EYED SCHOOLMATES. STORYTELLING DURING RECESS FROM CLASS. I ONCE EVEN FOOLED MY BEST FREIND, INTO BELIEVING THERE WERE REAL DINOSAURS LIVING IN A SMALL CANYON NEAR MY HOUSE,,,,THE SECRET TO MY BEING COMPELLING IN MY STORYTELLING WAS THAT I WOULD CONVINCE MYSELF THAT THE STORIES WERE REAL. I WAS A METHOD ACTOR I GUESS.

EVEN AS A CHILD I KNEW THAT IF I WANTED TO BE BELIEVABLE. IT WAS IMPORTANT THAT ON SOME LEVEL, I SHOULD BELIEVE MY OWN BULLSHIT…THE FIRST CRIME OF DECEPTION THAT I PERPETRATED WAS AROUND THE AGE OF 5 LOR 6 YEARS. I REMEMBER FIRST DROPPING A HALF DOLLAR COIN IN THE STREET IN FRONT OF OUR HOUSE. THEN., AFTER WATCHING A FEW MINUTES OF AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAMMING, I RETURNED TO THE STREET AND “DISCOVERED!” THE COIN…..THEN, TAKING IT IN MY SWEATY LTTLE FIST I FOUND MY MOM AND DECLARED TO HER THAT I HAD “FOUND” IT IN THE STREET…. I GUESS I WAS A METHOD ACTOR BACK THEN,, AND HAD TO EXPERIENCE IT BEFORE I COULD RECITE THE LIE ABOUT IT….IN OTHER WORDS, I HAD TO BE IMMERSED IN THE WORLD OF THE LIE BEFORE I COULD FEEL CONFIDENT REPORTING IT TRUTHFULLY….

THIS HOPPING ABOUT FROM REALITY TO REALITY WAS A WORK OF PRETENDING THE TRUTH AWAY ….I HAD TO ABANDON THE TRUTH TO CHANGE IT, I GUESS.

SUCH IS THE CASE WITH THIS SMOLETTE CHARACTER WHO RECENTLY HIRED HIS OWN ‘PRETEND ASSAULT’, COMMITTED TO GAIN A BIT MORE NOTERIETY AND POSSIBILY MORE CASH.

THUS SPAKE JUSSIE, JUST KLIK DA PIK
