Bluffing Your Way In
Scarborough Bluffs, Ontario (June 2005)
We all have done it, maybe at least once. Ok, once.
Probably, we've negotiated our way in deals or did not mention our correct age, when someone politely guessed your age being 5 years younger than actual. We raised the ante in poker even when we knew we had an inferior hand. We probably rattled off some half-baked facts and made it seem that we were an expert when we just read the book entitled "Bluff Your Way in (Blank)" (insert things such as Math, Wine Tasting, Sports, or even Sex). Maybe there was a time we didnt flinch and asked back "Pardon, Officer, was I running above max?", when you actually made 120 when the limit was a 60.
I once bluffed my way in a job interview when I was asked whether I knew Lotus or FoxBase (if they dont sound familiar, you probably were in Grade School when I got my first job), I got the job and learned both software over the weekend and was a master of it in a week. Last Sunday, despite a bum stomach, I wanted to look fine despite some people asking me how I was, when in truth I needed to go and excuse myself. It was good it was just gas pain, if not I'd have been down dahil sa sama ng loob.
Is bluffing also telling a lie? Are we not being true to ourselves when we do it?
