In Reply to: He "went into his con" posted by milena on April 24, 2004
: I found this expression in a book.
: the sentence is the following:
: He met Lamar at the door. went into his con e Lamar went into his con..
: what does "went into his con" mean?
: thanx in advance for any help!
: take care
It sounds like it refers to this meaning (from Merriam-Webster online):
Main Entry: 7 con
: something (as a ruse) used deceptively to gain another's confidence; also : a confidence game.
He started doing his "act," his line. His way of presenting himself to gain another's confidence, trust, etc.
