Spies Among Us
To be a spy you must be smart. You must be sneaky. You must be witty. You must be quick on your feet. You must be sharp. You must have guts. You must be creative. You must be a quick learner. You must be discreet.
Many of these skills you should be born with. While you may be able to fine tune them later in life, these aren’t traits easily learned.
There are several famous spies out there. Real life spies that some may have never heard of (They are sneaky like that!). Or those famous spies like James Bond and Austin Powers who we have grown to love from the movies.
However, what about those people you may not have even suspected. Those people who you always wonder about there suspicious activities. But who are these people? And should you be concerned?
World take over or secret spy?
Who would have ever thought a baby would be the ideal candidate for the secret service? But the better question would be why not! After all, these little tots are probably the least suspected secret agents and some of the smartest people out there. Sure, they may be wearing diapers, but it is just part of their disguise.
They sit and they listen. They absorb every bit of information around them. They are definitely sneaky… especially once they figure out were the fruit snacks are hiding in the pantry. They learn quick. Before you know it, they go from crawling to walking to running. And they definitely have guts. They are willing to be swung around the room and flung into the air… and the thought of how dangerous that is, doesn’t even occur to them.
So the next time you think you have a little innocent baby on your hands… think again! They may be a recruit for the Spies Among Us!
The Next Door Neighbor
Have you barely exchange more than a handful of words with your next door neighbor? Do you wonder why their lights are always on until all hours of the night and they always seem to sleep until all hours of the day? Do you wonder what kind of job they actually have, because even though they live in a nice house and drive fancy vehicles, you have never actually seen them leave for work.
These are all signs you might be living next to someone working for the secret service. After all, they have either lived next to you all your life, and you know nothing about them; or they just moved in and pretty much keep to themselves. There activities are suspicious. Yet, you don’t ask them what they do. Why, for fear you may be the person they are checking into!
Dear Old Grandma
You may think Grandma is old and fragile, but you never know what may be under that wrinkly skin. Inside might be a fighting ninja with stealth spy skills. They have stories, but they never told the stories of how they worked undercover to gain insightful information. While they may be retired, the skills are still fine tuned and they probably have a collection of gadgets you would never even be suspicious of.
For instance, did you ever notice you can’t tell a lie to your Grandma. Maybe it is because of those delicious home made cookies she just fed you. I bet it is laced with a truth serum. That is how they get all the secretive details from their suspects.
So next time you go to Grandma’s house and wonder why she tries to stuff you like a Thanksgiving Turkey, she might be trying to get some kind of information out. Old habits are hard to break. Finding out the truth just might be one of them!
Which ones the spy?
Your Significant Other
Think you know everything about the person you have decided to spend the rest of your life with? Well think again! Do they occasionally have to work late? Do they get “stuck” in traffic? Do they always walk out of the room when they are talking on the phone, insisting it was because the kids are being noisy? Perfect ploy for covering up their real job! They may very well be a spy. The hardest part about this is you are actually part of their cover-up… yet, you don’t even realize this! And you thought your really knew them. I might have put some doubt in your mind now!
Who really knows your local postal worker? I know I see mine occasionally… just quick enough for him to flash a quick smile and throw my mail in the box. I swear though, I have seen him looking at the stuff. Checking it out. Sure, you might explain this as a sorting procedure to make sure everybody gets the right mail. I call it sneaky. More evidence - they are already a government employee! So the next step would only be logical.
What better way to gain some extra information than to know a lot about everybody else and everybody else know very little about you. It’s the perfect hideout; the perfect cover up. So, the next time you see your friendly neighborhood mailman, remember, there might be ulterior motives. Don’t be surprised if you suddenly see a switch up of people delivering your mail!
Spies Among Us
They could be anyone and they could be anywhere. Do you really know the people around you? They could be living a secret life that you aren’t even aware of.
Maybe it is the family pet. Maybe it is the barber or hairstylist that you have been seeing for years. Looks can be deceiving and the look of a spy is to fit in with everybody else.
So, can you pick out the spies among us?
