part 323.1 of a novel: doormat

There was someone with a doormat that said, “Mets.” I have never liked the Mets. I thought about knocking on the door and saying something like, “My name is John Franco,” even though my name is not John Franco. I wonder what they would say if I said I was John Franco. Maybe they would say, “Hello John,” or, “Who is John Franco?” or, “No you’re not. I’m John Franco.” I also thought about saying something different like, “Hello, I am Todd Hundley.” I think I would rather be Todd Hundley than John Franco. I did not knock on the door of the person with the doormat that said, “Mets.”
