“I can do that, Dad,” he said. “Watch me take this orange, apple, and peach and multitask.”
“Son, that’s juggling, not multitasking,” his father corrected. “If you really want to be a sales hero when you grow up, my boy, you need to be a magician. You need to be able to divert and distract your marks’ attention. That way, the gullible suckers will be amazed because they didn’t see it coming. They’ll only see what you want them to see, not what you are actually doing.”
“I know I can do that. I can be the best salesman in the world, Dad,” he said. “Believe me.”
“I know you can, son,” his father told him. “If you set your mind to it, maybe someday you can be president. Imagine the jubilation of the crowds when you hold your political rallies.”
“Yes, Dad,” Donald said. “I can see it, bigly.”
