# This is NOT a riddle puzzle

Riddle me this:

I am not a riddle.
Although I may look like one, I am not.
I am hearing you call me a riddle, so...
Since riddles can't hear, I mustn't be one!
I assure you, I am not a riddle.

Can you believe that I'm not a riddle?
And can you believe that I'm telling the truth?
Now, I am more unusual than a riddle.
The truth here is that I am literally 'I', just me...
Oh, nevermind. I can't organise my thoughts, I'm not particularly interested in this riddle - I mean not a riddle!

Really, it's not a riddle. But I'm going to ask it anyway:

What am I? I won't always be this, so perhaps a better question is:
What am I right now?

(EDIT for clarification: the answer will use information from EVERY line in the riddle)

• Does this need the wordplay tag? – boboquack Jan 21 '17 at 9:47
• Possibly not. As with my not a number sequence puzzle, I find it difficult to find any suitable tag apart from the tag that it is not. – TheGreatEscaper Jan 21 '17 at 9:47
• Are you going to post something titled 'This is NOT a puzzle' anytime soon? :P – Ankoganit Jan 21 '17 at 13:19
• If I could without getting it flagged for irrelevance, I think that idea would be good fun :P – TheGreatEscaper Jan 21 '17 at 13:57

You are

Rather bored.

Explanation:

The first letters in each line of the second verse, along with the first letter of the first line after the yellow box, read out CANTOR. This gives away that we need to read the diagonal. If you take the $n$th letter of the $n$th line in every line inside the yellow box, this is what you get.

• The same hint is in the italics. :) – Rubio Jan 22 '17 at 7:42

I think the answer must be

a shapeshifter
