    Carry a large bag. It doesn't have to be a backpack or a duffel or anything, a large purse will work. Carry things such as tweezers, a pocket knife, a notebook, a camera, a voice recorder, duct tape, or anything else you can think of. (Note: Make sure the purse isn't really bright. It doesn't have to be black or dark grey, just make sure it's not bright pink with blue polka dots!)

    Buy (or find) a notebook, then start filling it up with random things. Example of a page: HTML CODE: 6-82-25-11. Robert Hall very dangerous, do not approach. Crystalline firewall systems: Freezes computer when firewall is breached. (Insert best friends name and information). Put this in your bag. Hint: It might also be useful to have a copy of this on your computer, too. Also you might want to write things in the notebook in languages such as German, Chinese, and Latin. Also in codes that you can decipher.

    Start putting in 'earpieces' (Even a rolled up sheet of Kleenex colored silver or black will work). Deliberately sit in the corner and talk to 'the person on the other end'. Handle this step carefully, so people don't think you're crazy. If someone starts to look at you strangely, turn your head so that they can just barely see the earpiece, then finger it guiltily. When they notice, pretend to be embarrassed and leave the room.

    When you know somebody is coming back into the room, get on the phone and start saying things like: "Yes, I have the Istanbul problem covered, General." But stop just after she/he walks into the room, saying something like this into the phone: "Bye! Nice... talking to you."

    Start finding 'bugs' when she/he's in the room. (Bugs can just be tiny, wadded balls of tape, colored metallic). Sit down, then groan and look at where the 'bug' is. When he/she notices, pluck it off the wall, being careful to disguise the bug, then flush it into the toilet.

    After studying up on the art of spying, start a 'spy group' with him/her and amaze him/her with your talent.

Tips

  • After he/she says they 'found out the truth' about who you really are, make them swear up and down they won't tell.
  • Stay quiet and mysterious. If people ask why you are like that just answer,"Don't worry about it."
  • Don't fall for the cliches and dress in all black, unless you plan on fooling him/her by sneaking out at night. If you're just going into town or something, dress in your regular clothes, but put earphones in.
  • Don't be too obvious. Don't just start bragging about how 'I'm a spy'. A real spy would never do that.
  • Read books like Undercover Girl, Kiki Strike, and The Gallagher Girls series.
  • If they ask to look in the notebook, act nervous.

Warnings

  • If he/she finds out, don't let him/her tell anybody who is in a position of authority. They would make you tell if you really are a spy or not, then your whole mission is blown.
  • Don't do anything too dangerous to try to get him/her to notice.
