One day I got an email from a Mr Paul. I wondered who this new friend could be. I decided that I loved Mr Paul… There was something endearing about his use of title + first name. He needed to hear from me. Plus, he said he knew someone with my last name! Maybe it was a long lost relative…

It seems Mr Paul didn’t feel the same way about me. I didn’t hear from him again.
