My first Disco I was off to my first disco at the local village hall, Thirteen years old, and I was giving it my ‘all’ I’d washed my hair with Dettol to get rid of all my frizz, It was plastered to my head; I knew I really looked the biz, I added a Ben Sherman shirt and Clarkes Commando shoes, Dressed up to the nines; I knew I couldn’t really lose My friend and I went in; soon I was feeling pretty glad, As I’d noticed I was being surveyed by quite a handsome lad, He didn’t take his eyes off me, ‘twas more than just a glance, He fancied me; I knew that he’d soon ask me for a dance, He walked across the dance floor and my heart filled with pure joy, Until he said “Are you a girl? ‘Cos my mate reckons you’re a boy...” ©Jan Jack 2010

I think i just fell in love! I took a look at the homepage too. Absolutely and utterly brilliant. Light hearted, funny, real, and a pleasure to read out loud.

Please keep posting Jan. You rock my world. :)

Good evening Jan

Loved the rhyme and rhythm to I Wish Life Were Different. Take it from me, breasts are no fun. You can have mine. That said, you make a fine point about when it's cold.

Look forward to reading more of your whimsical verse.

You can take my breasts if you like - I have far too many.
