It’ll NEVER work!
Why would you even waste your time doing THAT?
You’re going to be the laughing stock of the whole community.
If you really do that, I will do everything I can to disassociate myself with you.
Yes I will shun you and whisper about you to my cronies . . . Just beyond your earshot.
UNLESS . . .
In which case, you will instantly become my best friend.
I will proselytize about your BRILLIANCE and clairvoyance.
I will claim MY important role in your success with grand stories that never happened, like . . .
that night we had a few beers and I had this fantastic idea which you put into action.
Ah yes . . . We will both be VERY rich and famous together.
thus are the lives of the visionary and the wannabe.
the circle of life . . .
