Email from a woman who lives near us in the country an older1
woman gracious and kind she was once
a high school English teacher husband died a few years ago.
she wrote with a Hacker Story:
her nephew’s birthday was today and she couldn’t leave her house
because she’d fallen and broken two ribs and could I who do not know
her well who don’t live nearby could I get an Amazon gift card for one
hundred dollars send it to her for her nephew and she would repay
me immediately I wondered if there was any way to actually see
the hacker imitating the older woman in the country and if there
was anyone on this planet who would send a one hundred dollar Amazon
gift certificate just because, and why if that hacker was writing a story
why it wasn’t more elaborate: a fire a flood just an explosion.
