My last Johnny Cupcakes post was titled “Johnny Cupcakes is turning into Willie Wonka”, and take a guess what he said in the latest mailout?
' I almost feel like the Willy Wonka of t-shirts. I enjoy making people feel like kids again.'
Yep, I’m feeling pretty good right now, why? Because I totally called it! If you haven’t noticed, I’m a really bad winner (hell, you don’t want to see me lose), so when I get something right its usually best to just walk away for about five minutes until I’ve stopped gloating." http://hideyourarms.com/2008/05/12/

Explanation: Not sure - there is not much context, but the idea of poker comes to mind - to call as in to call someone's bluff (when you do that you remain very neutral and hide your feelings) - maybe the above could work in that case ?
