Several years ago, during a different time

I was gifted with the name Baffy.

While indeed this was a serious typo

of my actual name, I don’t think it was a mistake.

I like to believe that this nickname is derived

from the verb baffled which means many things.

I am bewildering and perplexing

I am a puzzle and I am confusing.

I mystify and confuse many.

I am all of these things and more.

I am hard to understand

even when I try to make things clear.

Do I baffle you? So what? Get on board.

Doesn’t everyone need a little mystery in their life?
