Still breathing …

March 15, 2012

I’m in the Marquis Who’s Who: I have been for a few years. Today, an ex-colleague of mine, a retired Professor, who had been visiting family in Hong Kong, came to visit me in my office, and said he was really pleased to see me. Now, I was glad of that, but wondered why he was quite so glad to see me. It turns out that he had been looking at Marquis Who’s Who, from Hong Kong – someone had recommended him – and he had decided to look up a few people he know on it, including me. I was on there, all right, but marked deceased! As Mark Twain said, “Rumors of my demise were much exaggerated”, I’m very glad to say. I have needless to say written to the company, and will try to get the error corrected, preferably before it actually becomes true!
