Blank Stare (Limerick)

Updated on July 24, 2012
Source

You must remember my bank account pin

I told you last week again and again

I threw the code away

This is a terrible day

Calm down I am not Jon but Josh his twin

Inspiration

I figured I would dedicate this Limerick to twins all around the globe! We are called the worng names on a daily basis. Wherever we go, confusion is sure to follow us. There is nothing we can do about this; it is a lost cause! There is no way to stop it! We are doomed to live a life of constant confusion.

"No I am not Jon, I am Josh, his twin brother". I should seriosuly consider recording this statement and put it on a continual loop track and have it run all day through external speakers. All right, I would never do something that drastic. But, it does happen all the time. So, I thought I would write a funny poem to portray something that can happen in real life.

I hope you have enjoyed this Limerick! Take care my hub friends. You mean the world to me and your support is appreciated daily! I appreciate each and every one of you!

      Josh, fun limerick and all the better for your amusing explanation after it. I am not a twin but my mother always seems to get to my name last when she's talking to me "Lisa, Lynn, Julie..." and I'm the eldest, surely my name should come first?

      Twins may have fun times with each other but to be mistaken for the other is no fun for them.

      Great limerick Josh.

      Too funny, Josh! Let me tell you a funny thing that kept happening to me along those lines. My sister was 10 years old than I am, but our birthdays are only 1 day apart. Hers was just 10 years and 1 day ahead of mine! My Dad used to call me on her birthday and wish me a happy birthday. So sometimes, you don't even have to be a twin!

      Good job and voted up!

      Jon - I can not tell you how original this was. Especially for a twin!

      Did I say Jon? I meant Josh.

      (I only tease because I like you and you are such a good sport!)

      It could be worse Josh - Whenever people are introduced to my sister and I we are asked if we are twins......I'm ten years younger!!!!!!! LOL
