I am so reassured by Toby's words after what I've been through the last few days.
First, let me apologize to all my loyal readers and to Karen Moy for yesterday's horrible post. My iPhone was stolen, and along with it, my identity!
I left my iPhone sitting on top of my car while I went into the grocery store on Thursday afternoon. I thought it would be safe there. But when I came back, someone had stolen it! I was shocked. What is happening in this world?
Fortunately, I had made a list of all my iPhone contacts - about 4,000. I called everyone on my list and told then that if they got a call from someone claiming to be me, that it wasn't really me, someone had stolen my identity!
Then I called the police.
On Friday, I tried to sign onto my blog, but the password had been changed. I read the post that the new me had tried to write about Toby being so angry she was turning into the Incredible Hulk. It was a nice try, but not quite up to par.
Then Saturday, no post. I thought that was okay, that's alright. The real me doesn't post every day, why should the fake me? But then, on Sunday, the fake me hit the breaking point, and posted his outburst. That was the clue the police needed. They found the thief, curled up in Barnes and Noble, lying on the comics section of the local paper, with 27 empty cups of Starbucks coffee strewn around him, weeping silently.
He just couldn't take it, it turns out. He wasn't cut out for anything as sophisticated as being me, nor could he handle the genius of Mary Worth.
I want to give a very special thanks to the brilliant Karen Moy for helping me get my iPhone back. Your writing has taken down one more criminal.
