Question of the Day

Suggested by Shaker Carpe Librarium: "What is a scheme you masterminded as a child that you thought you got away with, but in retrospect was probably blatantly obvious even to the most casual observer?"

Oh gosh, what a good question! I wasn't a very scheming kid, because I have always known that I'm a terrible liar and terrible keeper of secrets.

(I once casually blurted out something about a surprise birthday party I was planning for Iain, just in regular conversation, because I'm so not used to concealing things from him!)

But I was a very shy and anxious kid, so probably on the occasions I tried to project some kind of confidence to try to seem like I wasn't dying inside 100% of the time, it was pretty transparent that I was a full wreck, lol.
