Tricks of the Mind

This sort of thing scares the crap out of me because (a) I have a child who is stepping out into the world more and more, and (b) I would fall for most of these. OK, I admit it -- (b) is the bigger source of worry:

That's all well and good, but what if the guy in the slowly-driving-by car is a professional photographer who is about to change your life for the better by "discovering" you as America's Next Top Child Model? As the years roll by, and you are working your unmolested butt off at the grill at Burger King, aren't you going to be tormented by thoughts of the lucrative child-modeling career that you so curtly denied yourself? Nay, the lucrative child-modeling career that launched you into starring roles on unwatchable situation comedies, direct-to-DVD feature films, and eventually, gigs as a renowned science popularizer? Hmm?

Damn, those are some freaky folks! That dude who threatened to kill his dog looked like one mean motha. Then again, I think I'd go along with that second chick. Go to your car to get batteries, you say? Sounds like the premise for a porno.
