This is embarrassing, but I'll admit it. A friend sent me an e-mail today that suggested that I might get to attend the Beijing Olympics all expenses paid. I wrote back immediately to express my interest. It would take too long to explain, but the funny thing is that a couple of weeks ago a completely coincidental event made the premise almost believable. Of course it wasn't quite believable but when you think something good might happen you can lose your mind for a moment, even if you think you are a good skeptic.
I believed it for a full six minutes, and actually mentioned it to someone I was IMing at the time, before I wised up and wrote back saying ha ha ya got me.
Anyone else wanna fess up?
