In one such instance, I ended up on this blog, where I read:
“Son, if you want people to think you believe in yourself, walk like you’ve got a cape on.”Which I thought would be interesting to try. Next morning, on my way to work, I pretended I was wearing a cape. And it works.
In a Dog Whisperer kind of way.
Just as I was feeling mighty invincible (and sort of like Larry David) I got on the subway and took a seat across from a woman wearing a leopard print cape. A real, honest to goodness cape. Which somehow ruined the whole experiment.
