The curious case of somebody

What would happen if you tell Calvin that Hobbes is just a stuffed toy ?
Just imagine how shocking it can be to him.
You think you know a person for many years and you realize you don't know him that well. The mental(!?) picture of him doesn't even remotely in anyway resembles him.

I would like to call him somebody,
As of now he feels somebody to me
These are the things I found out about him in past few months

Somebody poses picture of Mr. independent
But don't even know how to properly iron his own clothes

Somebody wishes he could stay around 29 and never get to be 30
So he don't have to answer, "are you still single ?" - pseudo sympathetic questions

Somebody wishes his dad could be rich to let him do higher studies, So he don't have to worry for loan to be repaid, family to take care of.

Somebody who works in a job which is no where closer to any profile he did all these years,But took the job because it is in abroad which would make his parents and himself(!?) proud
And realised all he needs is yogurt mixed rice from mom's hand

Somebody cannot quit this job or transfer to home town
Because that will be like quitting according to him
Because he needs the comfortness of abroad lifestyle
And the money to pay n number of things he provided for his family and self

Somebody misses his family terribly
but cant visit them since his job has got only 12 days leave per year.

Somebody reads many motivational books
Do meditations and preaches motivational stuff
Even cheers his friends and offer suggestion on their problems
But remain helpless and distressed at his own situations
And constantly shuttles between low and high mood swings

Somebody who like to believe in his dreams of working in creative industry someday,But don't know when and how he would start the career change

Somebody who write and reads about love all the time
So much that people would preceive he is having a great love life

Somebody who even after maintaining perfect weight for many years, still diets to death to gain flat abs and slim figure.He might constantly worry about getting older too.

Somebody pretends to be happy and bubbly over the phone
So his family and friends would never find out how miserable he is.

Somebody who cracks jokes, go out with friends
Only to return to a room full of things which gives comfort but not company

Somebody who just realized the truth in Om shanti Om dialogue
"The person who smiles a lot, does same amount of crying too"

p.s:
Somebody writes a post and visits every now and then to check how many visited since then. He feels bad if no one writes a comment , worrying whether his writing is not good enough. However pacifies himself that he is writing to express himself and comments dont matter
