It’s been a day of flashbacks. When I saw this letter in the mail, I chuckled. This took me back to my childhood days when Reader’s Digest would send out the same prize teasers to potential subscribers. I used to slip into fantasy when I saw the prize amounts. Like a good Asian, I didn’t think I would buy anything with the prize money — if I won, which I never did. Instead I thought of saving the money in my bank. That was my idea of getting rich. Two decades later, the Reader’s Digest is still using the same trick to thrill its audiences! Today I did feel a tinge of excitement — and a mini-trance. So this might be how permissive induction feels like.
