[WiZ] Keith to a Mythtery

Postby WiZ » Tue Jul 09, 2019 10:23 pm

For a period of several months, Keith received important letters to someone he did not know and did not live at or near his address. This never bothered him, and he made no effort to return the mail or track down the recipient. Why not?

Is Keith H/A/M?

Is the intended recipient always the same? Is he or she a real living person? Is the sender always the same? Is the content of the mail relevant? Does Keith read the letters? Keep them? Do something relevant with them?

To be sure: can we assume that Keith receive the letters directly at his house? (E.g. in contrast to his place of work or study/directly on hi hands/peculiar situations such as keith being a soldier in a war)

Did the someone sign rhe letters? With his/her real name? Was the someone writing the letter always the same person? HAM?
Did the someone represent an organization? An istitution? Advertisement relevant? Did he/she write directly and exclusively to keith? Also to other people?
Did Keith reply every time? Does keith do this for job? Does he reply to strangers? Maybe working in a magazine? Did he know the recepient? Had he ever relevantly seen him face to face? Had something to do with him/her? Did Keith reply to questions made in the letter? Maybe filling a questionnaire? Giving info to the recepient? Relevant how he traced back the recepient? Was it relevantly simple to do so?

Relevant the content of the letter? Personal? Always the same topic? Several topics? Work? Sport? Events? Health? Instructions? Safety?

Period of several months: several months after he made a subscription? After he bought something? Had done something relevant?

important letters --> important for Keith? For someone else? For people living in a certain area?

Do the letters have Keith's address on them? His name? Are the letters legal in nature? Does he receive the letters through the mail? Is someone making an error?

Does Keith know why he gets the letters?
If Keith tried to send the letters back to its intended destination, would he succeed? Would they end up at Keith‘s address again?

Is something special with Keith‘s address? With the intended address? Do they share some trait?

Is Keith's surname relevant at all? Would the letters represent good news for the intended recepient? Is someone being sued? has someone relevant died?

So the envelope contains the intended recepient's name and keith's address? Does the sender have a reason to think the person lives with Keith or at Keith's address? Is the type of abode Keith has relevant? Does he live in a house? Detached? APartment? Above a business? Do any of his neighbours receive similar letters?
