Blinking for Dollars

illuminati_dollarDad: Hey son, check out this dollar bill.
Son: Cool!
Dad: If you look at the eye atop the pyramid long enough, it will wink at you.
Son: Cool!
Dad: Here (hands bill) Now keep your eye open and don’t blink or you’ll miss it.
Son: (after a couple minutes) I still don’t see it.
Dad: Just keep your eye open.
Son: (eye is drying out – he winks) Oh yeah! I saw it.
Dad: Isn’t that cool? Here you can keep the dollar.

This post is my Thursday meme. It’s part of Mama Kat’s Writer’s Workshop. She gives several prompts, I chose “A time when you were tricked.” See her post and read more about her memes and blog challenges at the source below.

Bob was taking us Snipe hunting. I didn’t believe in killing animals but Bob promised we wouldn’t be hurting them. He was an avid hunter so it makes sense that I wouldn’t trust him completely.
