Casting Thy Bread Upon Thy WatersPosted Sunday, August 28, 2011, at 10:57 PM
Cast your bread upon the waters, and it will come back, but sometimes without the proverbial crusts. There have been days when I have cast my bread upon the waters, and it has yet to come back to me. I sometimes go to a manmade lake, and when I cast my bread upon its waters, the ducks swim by and gobble it down. But I don't mind because that's why I am there.
The other day, I cast my bread upon the waters where there were no ducks because I was at home, and it was an internet site for aspiring female writers, but this time it came back with unexpected results.
I posted my real-life picture and a profile answering one out of many questions. The question was, "what are you?" so I answered, "I think I am a human."
The following day, an email from someone named Julia writing as John Derek, or John Derek being Julia, arrived.
"Comment Site . So I decided to stop by an let you know that I really want to have a good friendship with you. Beside i have something special i want to discuses with you, but I find it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site. I will be very happy, If you can get back to me, through my e-mail. Comment Site . So I decided to stop by an let you know that I really want to have a good friendship with you.

Getting suspicious, I told her/him that it was unusual she didn't want to write about it since it is a site for writers. Do you think I acted in haste, or was this just another Ponzi scheme?
