What is your dreamy self?

Have you ever thought about the work of a spy? What about undercover spies? Who are they really?
Spy-person with incredible qualities. They can break into a property, drive fast without getting into an accident, follow someone without getting caught, win the trust of stranger, use karate or other martial arts and pretend they are someone else.
I learned about this from an article that described a crash course for future spies. One of the tasks was to adopt new identities and take temporary jobs in a gym, a clothes shop and a barbers.
After reading this, I thought who I would like pretend to be in their place.The answer was obvious to me. I would become a barista. I believe that this is a person who in a relaxed atmosphere can learn anything about a person. Often, people under the influence of alcohol start the conversation with the barista and talk about everything that comes to their mind. And the barista will never be suspected of snooping. Perfect.
Who would you like to be?

    Hi Anna

    I never like to be a spy. They are traitors especially undercover spies. but the spies that I most hate are internet spies. They have equipments to control other computers compeletely.

  • That's an interesting topic, Anna! I totally agree spies have exciting lives full of adventures but only in films. In real life they have to do lots of objectionable things. Talking about pretending to be someone else (if it was a film hahah), I would like to become a popular book author. I think it's so awesome to sit in front of your fans in some beautiful library or book store and read an episode from your book during its presentation))) What's your opinion about that?
    I also can propose a real way for you to feel like a spy, you can try yourself as a secret shopper. Have you heard about them? Companies and auditors hire secret shoppers to check their stores or services for compliance with current standards and requirements. And you will be paid for each check. I hope this information will be helpful. Take care!

  • Suasdee Anna, wearing a mask is not the kind of deed I like. During wars and for your country or for a noble cause, you can wear that mask to serve that purpose. Thanks, Anna for a distinguished discussion.
