I just got an e-mail that said,
Someone just subscribed to receive an email every time you publish a post at https://nathanbiberdorf.wordpress.com. Congratulations.
Sometimes I feel like WordPress is being sarcastic with me.
Apparently, though, Someone is the person’s name. That must have been an interesting birth. Imagine this conversation between his/her/its parents, Anyone and Nobody.
“You’re going to be a very special someone some day.”
“Honey, why can’t he/she/it be a very special someone right now?”
“Great idea, dear. Let’s call him/her/it Someone! What do you think?”
“Uh oh…looks like Someone needs a diaper change.”
And when Someone grew up, he/she/it would have so many good nicknames, like Not Just, A Certain, and That Special.
Now I just need somebody called Everyone to follow the blog…
