    We have to say that sanity / Isn’t always what it’s cracked up to be. / Although some say it’s very bad / If someone else is a little mad, / It doesn’t matter at all to us; I, Myself, and Me.

    I am quite content to be one of three, / Though Myself doesn’t think much of Me. / And as for Me, / As you can see, / He just hangs about the periphery.

    We manage fine, the three of us. / Days go by with little fuss. / We’ve come to terms, we happy three, / Of I, Myself, and even Me. / Yes, we’re all fine – it’s you who’s nuts!

    I am not a little bit crazy. I am not mildly crazed. i am so batshit insane that if i was considered dangerous they would lock me in a padded cell with a strait jacket. I am from a different reality. i decided on a whim that this was the real world, but it is NOT the one i grew up in. Several books have had their endings changed and there are some spelling idiosyncrasies. My social conduct norms do not conform to those in this world, and I remember many historical events being different then what is recorded in your history books. Many people i knew before I switched realities look completely different here, though the names are the same. My doppleganger, originally from this world must have been my twin as i often have people walk up to me recognising me though acknowledging that they haven’t seen me in close to 40 years. In my original universe i was supposed to be a physicist studying time travel, and I previously reset and restarted the present by screwing up an experiment, an after effect of which was forcing the world to start over from a point somewhere in the past. My deja vu until that was supposed to happen was strong, but i have not had deja vu in almost 20 years as the accident previously happened around 2008.

    Every man eventually comes to the conclusion that all women are crazy. Sure, men are crazy, too, but male crazy and female crazy are different. Male crazy is more like attaching balloons to a lawn chair, which at least sounds fun.
