Fedora.

There was a fedora that sat upon a hat rack, and stared at the people that went by. As dust collected, and style changed, the fedora became cynical, and counted the bald patches on men and women and their children. If they did not have one, the fedora, with a twitch of its grey felt edge, obliged.

no.

the world needs more baldness. and fedoras. and, come to think about it, fake biographies about people who never existed but passed off to look like they did.

i really do think more biographies of fake people should be written. it's the next logical step when you think about it.

well, there are plenty of fake people in the world, but that's probably not want you mean.

surprisingly, there are a few people who have made up their identity who pass through here. i know of at least two, and they're probably the only two regulars.

anyway, do i know you? you're not familar to me, in tone or identity, i've got to say.
