Danger from the past…

“Two months later, I got a collect call from Sing Sing. Yes, that Sing Sing, maximum security state prison north of New York City. Of course, I didn’t accept the charges, because I didn’t know anyone who was sent there. After all, I didn’t make a habit of finding the culprits and befriending them. Whoever it was, the caller yelled at the operator as she was talking to me. After I rejected the call, I told her loud and clear Heard he was threatening to kill me!

He then called a few more times, always with the same message: “I’m going to kill you, and you won’t see it coming!”

I replied “Obviously your employer hasn’t educated you on your subject. Two things you should know: There are a handful of Alphabet agencies that have been keeping tabs on me for a very long time. Actually every phone is being monitored for decades. Even while we are talking, this phone call is triangulated and all your information as well as all of your colleague’s information is being checked in real time. Your entire existence is going to be under a zoom microscope from now on, so, get ready for a stormy storm! Well, you can’t kill me.”

He asked “Why is it so?”

I replied… “Because… I’m already dead!”
