The N.S.A. certifies that this story, as stated, was indeed written by the author. The last time we initiated contact with the author he was walking on 1417 west Bloor Street in Toronto, ON, Canada. He was going to join one of his Facebook friends for a "grande" at the closest Starbucks. One of their mutual contacts in LinkedIN was also on her way.
