A while back I got a letter – a real letter, on paper, in my PO Box – addressed to: “M J Wright c/- M Wright”. The usual outcome of over-zealous database entry adventures, but it begs a conversation:
M: You’re me, aren’t you?
MJ: Sure am.
M: Then why do they think there are two of us?
MJ: Search me.
M: It’s a worry, because now we won’t know which of us has to pretend to be Mr Psychopath at 8.00 pm on alternate Tuesdays when replying to things people sent us in the post. Whose turn is it next?
MJ : I can’t remember.
M: Me neither.
MJ: Who’re you again?
M: No idea.
