It’s been a few days since my last post, but rest assured, I have a valid excuse. You see, the most wondrous and, somewhat disconcerting thing occurred. It was late at night, and I’d returned home after a long day at the theater. Shelley was sitting on the couch, waiting for me. I decided to check my email when I noticed that I had a new message, and not from some company attempting to persuade me to purchase various enhancement pills.
No, this was a letter from someone named “Phantom”, which I at first thought was quite ominous. According to Sandy, this is not uncommon when it comes to internet naming conventions, and is likely some sort of childish attempt at being “cool”. Regardless, I decided to click upon his message, and to my surprise, it was an offer to help fund my play, in return for the completion of a few errands. Nothing quite so blatant as a request for money (even I am not so gullible), but simply a nebulous request that I complete the tasks given.
He knew my name, my address, even the fact that I’ve been trying to get my play staged. I don’t know what I should do. Can this man be trusted? The last thing I want is to fall in with unsavory characters, but he is offering to finance my play. Some have already mentioned that this may be considered a scam, but I’m not sure who to believe. Dear readers, what do you think? Yea, or nay?
