You might think this is a relatively new phenomenon, one that has come about as the result of blogs and websites vying with each other, not saying but shouting, "ME! ME! ME!" to the search engines. But I can assure you it isn't anything new. The technique was invented and refined by my nine year old son, roughly 20 years ago at school.
I found one of his trial runs in an old exercise book: an essay entitled, My Wish.
My wish is that I would be in the school A team in football. I would wish that because I am quite a good footballer and I would really like to be in the school football team. Another reason that I would like to is that most of my friends are in the school football team and that I would get some training done because the school football team gets all the training. In the summer they are allowed to go on the
feildfield and play football with the others. I like playing football and my brother was in the school football team as well.
From the teacher: I'm sure you will be in the team next year.
So you see, he succeeded in his mission.

All anyone needs to do now, is substitute Zenni optical glasses everywhere he mentions football team, and your success is as inevitable as his. I'm confidently expecting 1,000 hits a day now, from people looking for football teams.
