This is a transcript of an actual conversation I had with someone. The person will remain nameless to protect his or her identity. The scary thing is the person was totally serious.
Me: Hey, Nameless, thanks for calling back.
Nameless: Sorry I had to hang up earlier. There were some people at the house.
Me: I understand.
Nameless: They don’t really understand my gift.
Nameless: Yeah, that’s what I wanted to talk to you about.
Me: Oh, sure… okay.
Nameless: Most people don’t believe me, but I have evidence.
Me: Evidence? Evidence of what?
Nameless: Fairies are real. They visit me. They usually stay away from humans, but they visit me.
Me: (No reply)
Me: I’m here.
Nameless: Did you hear what I said?
Me: I… Yeah… Sure… That’s… cool.
Nameless: You don’t know how great it is to talk with someone who believes me! You believe me, right?
Me: Well… Yeah… I mean… why not?
Nameless: Thank God. I see them all over the place. Invisible fairies.
Nameless: They’re everywhere.
Me: But they’re invisible?
Nameless: Of course.
Me: So how do you know there everywhere… or anywhere for that matter?
Nameless: Because I’ve taken pictures of them.
Me: Wait, you have pictures of invisible fairies?
Me: Can you send me one of your pictures in an email?
Me: What do you mean why? It’s a picture of a fairy.
Nameless: Invisible fairy. Invisible fairy. Haven’t you been listening?
Me: So send me a picture of an invisible fairy.
Nameless: You can’t see it.
Me: What do you mean, I can’t see it?
Nameless: It’s invisible.
Me: Okay, now I’m confused.
Nameless: What’s so confusing? I have pictures of invisible fairies. Proof that they exist. Ironclad.
Me: But you can’t see the fairies in the pictures?
Nameless: What part of invisible don’t you understand?
