Lucky Winner

by Mark McGuire-Schwartz

When I stopped answering email, people thought I was dead. They tried to reach me on Facebook and other sites. Failing that, friends arranged a virtual wake and memorial service. Some may expected me to show up, but when I didn't, people stopped visiting my sites. The only people I hear from now tell me that I have won a big prize. I wonder if it's true.
