In a certain light he looked like Elvis
In a certain way he feels like Jesus
Everyone dreams of him just as they can
But he's only the humble Delivery Man
-- Elvis Costello, The Delivery Man
My character doesn't quite fit EC's portrayal of The Delivery Man, but I love the song and I'm intrigued by the idea of the outsider looking in. The song was the source for the title, but the image really had nothing to do with it. At least on a conscious level.
I think this character is turning into my alter ego.
