Its funny how the most important episodes in life, sometimes just pass you by without notice. It happened to me the other night when I received a mid-night phone from an withheld number.
Regrettably I never recorded the conversation but it went something like this:
Mystery Caller : Hi is this Guerrilla Democracy News?
Me: Yes, how can I help you?
Mystery Caller: Um, I've just read your article about the Queen arrested for High Treason.... Is it true?
Me: Ummm, what does your gut tell you?
Me: Who are you?
Mystery Caller: I can't say.
Me: Why not?
Mystery Caller: Because I'm attached to the family you talk about.
Sudden silence on my part, as the words sink in.
Me: You aren't Kate Middleton are you?
Mystery Caller: Ha ha ha, no, I'm not Kate Middleton.
Me: Well let me assure you, everything published on Guerrilla Democracy News is based on real news, which you won't get from anywhere else.
Mystery Caller: Well if its true, why isn't it on ten o'clock news?
Me: Because the Queen and her minions, spend billions of pounds every year in hiding the truth from the people.
Mystery Caller: We are all not that bad.
Me: Yes, you keep saying that, but who are you.
Mystery Caller: I'm sorry, but I can't tell you.
Me: Well OK. Many thanks for calling me and I'm glad you took the time to read my stuff, thank you.
Mystery Caller: You are very brave and very talented, thank you.
Me: No thank you and I hope you will do me the pleasure of reading my debut novel, The Golden Cube, which you can find on the site, which you may enjoy.
Mystery Caller: OK thanks, I may just do that. Bye.
And the phone call ended.
