Faking It

Cynthia faked

agoraphobia

so well

it became

a real

condition

 

She could

not

leave the

house;

she could

not even

leave the

kitchen

 

Eventually

there was

nothing left

for her to do

but

make chocolate chip

cookies

 

After baking

30,000

cookies

she

remembered

her “condition”

was a

put-on

but by

then

it was

too late

 

She had become known

as the

Cookie Lady

in her

neighborhood

and this title was

something

she

valued greatly

 

So much so

that she even got

a tattoo of a

chocolate chip

cookie

on her right

forearm: a badge

of honor

 

Moral of our

story:

faking it

can sometimes be the

best way

of really

making it
