Musing about being led astray

I love being led astray. Probably not in the sense you imagine.

I really like illusions. Someone making me see something that is not there.

I really like sleight-of-hand and prestidigitation. Someone making me not see something that is there.

I really like mystery novels and films. Someone making me draw false conclusion after false conclusion.

You know something? I never get jaded. Even though I’ve been doing this for years, even though I can often see what the person is trying to do. I still get fascinated by the person’s attempt to lure me down a different path. Lead me astray.

And so to this video. I could not see it. And I imagined something completely different. I won’t spoil it for you by telling you what I thought, or what it turned out to be. Suffice it to say that I was way wrong, even though I’d been warned.

Let me know what you think
