talking about computers and the internet, when the subject of
identity theft was mentioned.
"I don't worry about it much," I said. "If somebody wants my identity
I intend to curse the thief with all the things that go with it."
So, if some scurrilous character wants my identity here's some of the
things that go with it:
Being far enough over-the-hill to have forgotten what the top looked
A sense of self-worth that is, too often, subterranean.
Arthritis, bad knees, sinus problems, arrhythmia, and a weight
problem that is out-of-control.
You can have my self-consciousness and my insecurities.
There's a whole cartload of memories I'll toss in gratis.
Yes, Thief, there's a lot you'd have that is important and precious
to me but there is plenty that goes along with being me that you're
going to wish you'd passed by. So give it some thought and make sure
you really want my identity.
On consideration if you take my identity do I get yours in return?
Will I be gifted with a serious lack of integrity, a willingness to
take advantage of others, wealth without work, and invisibility?
Golly, let me think about this. Maybe we can strike a deal!
