Who Are You?

Unsolicited information is driving me crazy.


Somebody has been sending me messages. Information, to be more precise. Names, followed by clues. At first, I thought it was spam mail. But after a while, I realized some of the names sounded familiar. My heart skipped a beat. Then another.


I typed furiously. Everything I’ve learned about the Internet, I tried to recall with every neuron I had. Who was sending me these cryptic messages? What exactly are these messages and why am I the recipient? What’s with the names and the clues?


After a few minutes, the picture was clearer, but still a little bit puzzling. Who was behind this rather rude barrage of clues? Who was playing detective and sending me information I never asked for? I stayed glued to my seat, figuring out in vain how and why something so perplexing could happen to me. Thank God for social networking – it made the clues not too impossible to piece together.


I should bail. I really should. I am not deluded.


I cried. For hours. There was no comfort in knowing. There never is.


Whoever you are, are you reading my blog? What do you want from me? Why are you doing this??? Leave me alone.
