Yes, yes, it's TRUE ~ I have a slight obsessive -compulsive issue from time to time ~ some people think it has to do with the red hair, others think it may just be a personality defect. I think it depends with whom you are talking to & about. Since I am just talking to me, however, I am gonna take a little ~authoritative liberty~ and say, it's probably a real asset. Well, I mean, in SOME ways.
All right, moment of truth here ~ who really reads this blog? not too many people. Probably just MAYbeeee HOPEFULLY no one that knows me personally. By that I mean that lives down the street from me. Or even in the same town. SOOooooooo......................
I think that gives me license to be completely honest. Totally lay the cards face up on the table. No holds barred. Below the belt acceptable. It's ALL good.
Laid bare the soul for all to see
What's going on inside of me~
Tragic, comic, ghastly grand,
Foul or sweet, spastic bland
This little limeric a tale doth tell
A rumbling gut producing smell~
