You can't fool me.
I am a realist. Or at least I like to think so. And I don't think I'm quite as deluded as the bulk of humanity. Funnily enough, knowing that doesn't help with 'getting on' in life. It simply makes you want to get off instead.
It's surprising what can strike a chord.
I do have moments of whimsy. I usually go into a trance in the shower. Sometimes I get quite inspired.
