I Know:

I Know:

No ship, no crash, no little men with black eyes.
No crop rings out in the cornrows.
But then, what do I know.
No cover up, just big bucks.
That makes a great show.
But then, what do I know.
Just some person saying, "Now here is how it is",
Then sits back watching the story grow.
But then, what do I know.
What, you say, you knew that too?
Will here's a fact, I just made up for you, hello!
But then, what do I know.
Remember you must always top them so add something,
because you're a story telling pro.
But then, what do I know.
Now this is how ... I heard the story.
You start out with a smile, your face all aglow.
But then, what do I know.

The story telling pro is so good at adding all the little bits of fiction that take an event and make it extraordinary. Like a snowball, the story grows...

At the coffee shop, we try and top the next guy. So yes, you’re right.

Lynn:
That is why I love to tell stories.

Anky:
Yes I still write but in the blog I post a lot of old poems of mine to.
And Yes I’m published not big time but that don’t mater. One time only but that don’t mater. LOL

Jamie:
Thanks. We set at what I call the old farts table and by the time a story is over there is no telling what size of fish was really caught.

Snaggle:
Who ME!
LOL have a great weekend.

ElizabethR:
I just looked it up and found the name is up for sale.
Thirteen www.thirteenmagazine.co.uk volume 2 Issue 11 Halloween 2005 Edition : £3.50
Like I said one shot one time it did not make me or break me. I got a book a pat on the back and it did not cost me a penny. Mine was one of thirteen in the magazine. More like a paperback then a US magazine. desk49@yahoo.com if you want the story.

Funster:
Yes I think too? Thanks
