I'Ve Been Doing This Most Of My Life

'I never thought you were that serious.'

About what?
Serious about what?

'That which you do.'

Please.
I have no time for riddles.
What are you talking about?

'Your writing.'

I 'keep' telling you,
I've been doing this most of my life.
Almost 60 years now.

'Lies!
That's impossible.
I thought you told me you were in your late 40's? '

You see...
Even I am confused.
That's how long it has been.
When I was then a mere child,
In the mid...

'70's? '

70's? ? ?
Are you kidding?
I've been doing this...much...

You know?
You are right!
I write so much...
I forget!
It's 2011 isn't it?

I am so glad you are here.
God works in mysterious ways.
It just seems as if,
I've been doing this much, much longer.

'I know it was in the '70's' because I remember,
You told me your oldest sister, Mimmie...
Believes she is your mother sometimes.'

LOLOLOL...
Yep!
That she does.
But...
Don't tell her.
She will 'never' forgive me for revealing her real age!
