Have you ever seen that episode of How I Met Your Mother where they display for each other all of their major flaws? When each flaw is pointed out, you hear the sound of glass shattering while the rest of the group realizes that Lily chews like a beast, Ted corrects everyone, Marshall sings everything that he does, Robin over uses the word “literally”, and Barney speaks in falsetto, uses catch phrases annoyingly, and spaces out when his friends are talking to him.
Have your illusions about someone ever been shattered? Did you actually hear glass shattering? Or at least metaphorically hear glass shattering? Perhaps you didn’t realize that it was shattered until a period of time after the fact? Anyone?
I think it’s about time for me to go watch the debate, but I’m interested in hearing about how other peoples illusions have been shattered.
