THE MYSTERY MAN
A man was strolling peacefully through the valley, when suddenly he struck his toe on a rock. He screamed and cursed the rock, saying: “Damn you! I was at peace, you ruined my day!”
Well, he soon forgot about the whole thing and went on his way. That is until, out of nowhere, a voice was heard yelling at him from the distance, saying: “Damn you! I was at peace, you ruined my day!” Startled, he looked around but couldn’t find the man who had screamed at him. He wondered who this person was that had yelled at him, and how did he ruin his day?
He felt quite bad about ruining this poor mans day, so he decided he’d better look for him so he could apologize. He looked everywhere, but no matter how hard he looked, he just couldn’t seem to find this mystery man. So he yelled out to the stranger: “Who and where are you?” The man replied back: “Who and where are you?”
A little frustrated that he couldn’t just give a straight answer, the man decided to answer first. He told the stranger his name and location. To his surprise, the stranger replied back the same name and said he was in the same spot.
Now, this just raised all sorts of questions. He wondered: “Isn’t that odd that we both have the same name? If he is in the same spot as me, then why can’t I see him? His voice seems to be coming from far away, yet how is it that he says he’s in the same location as I am?”
He was determined to find this man, not only did he want to make things right, but now he just had so many questions that he wanted answered about this mystery man. He would not rest until his answers were resolved. And so day after day, year after year, he spent searching for this one that spoke to him in riddles, yet was never able to find.
