Recently been accused of nattering Guess old age has finally caught up But when I stop to think about it I've been nattering since I was a pup I'm really the only one listening So I've really got a built-in crowd Amazing are the stories I tell myself Sometimes I talk out loud People often stop and stare Like I'm some strange kind of kook When having conversations with myself Most passersby get spooked Take me or leave me it's who I am I'm happy in this skin that I'm in Can't change the person I am inside Perhaps I'm my evil twin © Jack Ellison 2013

    Here in Britain, people wonder why I laugh at my own jokes, why I laugh when I didn't even UNDERSTAND the punchline... but I don't need a reason to laugh. I tell jokes to amuse myself, I honestly don't care if anyone else GETS it. I remember reading a quote... it said "Don't find a reason to be happy... just be happy! If you have a reason then that reason can be taken away from you."... Natter away Mr. Ellison... natter away!

    Laughing is a secret to a long life! Look at me... haven't stopped laughing since the day I was born and I've reached the advanced age of 77 with nary a complain! Keep telling yourself jokes... to hell with what people think! LOL

    Evil twin? Naw... Just our favorite Jack... But come to mention it... Does my Dragon have an evil twin? It would explain a lot!

    Everyone has another side... the one we always try to hide! Muzzle it and keep it a secret! Hope you and your "guys" have a super day! xoxoxox
