A Kind Stranger
I had been intrigued by cryptograms for a long time, but I didn't know how to solve them. Then, on a particularly long flight, I found myself sitting next to an older gentleman who had a large book of cryptograms. I thought I was being subtle as I watched him solve them, but I guess I wasn't, because he asked if I solved cryptograms too. When I confessed I had no idea how they were done, he spent the rest of the flight teaching me the basics. By the time we landed I had solved quite a few. I hope that kind gentleman has somehow found this site, and gets as much pleasure out of it as I do!
