    Truth Teller

    I'm a low down dirty liar.  And a coward.  Self delusion doesn't work with me, however.  I know what I am.   I am not Michelle Pfeiffer!  There I said it.  Now, I feel better.   I also do not qualify anymore for my age range status on EP.   I haven't qualified for...

    Jokes Give It Away

    I know I am not nearly as funny as I think I am so learning that my jokes now seem dated and give away my age. I know I am getting older because my not so silly jokes give me away!
