"Once upon a time", I start,
but then that's all I've got,
for sad to say, I lack the art
of narrative or plot,

and so I stick to lyric rhymes
to bring me fame and glory
and leave the once upon a times
to those who tell a story.

Default Thanks for asking!

It took me seven years of analysis until I learned to laugh. I still need to work at it.

Thanks Jayne! And it’s ITrim. To bear the existential burden, I make up phrases, usually nonsense, to call out as soon as I awaken. Maybe, “I’m baaaaak! Hee HAW! Hee HAW! While splashing cold water on my head and face. Gets me chortling. A TV ad for “America’s Favorite Restaurant,” Taco Bell, recently featured Chulapas! So I wondered to myself, mind you laughing hysterically at myself, “Is there Chihuahua in my Chalupa?” Kept endorphins barking for about a week. I laugh ergo I live.

I can't sing.
In the shower, in a crowd too.
And here's the thing--
I'm not allowed to.

I'm like you, Ed. Do you ever start singing "La Donna E Mobile" only to be told by your friends that you're actually singing "It's Howdy Doody Time"?

From the first through ninth grave I was officially designated a "listener" by the New York City Board of Education. I could open and close my mouth when the class sung - had to, as a matter of fact - but no sound could emerge. I loved to sing, but whenever I sneakily tried, one teacher or another would blow on her pitch pipe and signal the class to silence. "Michael Cantor - was that you?"

Nothing really happened in the tenth grade, except that they just stopped caring. And I was always the best in the class at inventing dirty lyrics to the classic favorites, so the kids respected me even if the teachers didn't.

Ah, dirty lyrics in high school. (Well, that's what high school was all about)

When the bride rushes in
Plants her t**t on your chin

or

Don't know why
There is lipstick on my fly
Sloppy blowjob

Stormy Weather. Is she one of the ones who slept with Donald Trump? I'm an old man - although not as old as you, Edmund - and it's tough to keep track.
