Many years ago I was sitting at a pub in England drinking away my sorrows. I was only 9 years old back in 1969 but looked old for my age. I sat at the bar which was at chin level to me due to my short 9 year old stature. I was thinking profound thoughts of the mysteries of life and began to write on my napkin. Several crumpled up napkins later I read the napkin before me on which I'd titled Stairway To Heaven and it began "There's a lady who's sure all that glitters is gold and she's buying a stairway to heaven..." There were these two long haired Brits named Jimmy and Robert sitting beside me matching me drink for drink, and due to their body mass being 4 times mine they held their liquor much better than I. Anyways, I got pretty wasted and woke up on the floor. The napkin, Jimmy, and Robert were gone, and the rest is history.  If you bought that story I'll sell you the Brooklyn Bridge cheap!

You're welcome Neon!

Thanks Nancy!

It reads very witty...not sarcastic. Except for being nine I could almost believe it.

Thank you, I was feeling pretty sarcastic when I wrote it!
