Boomer’s Rambles (alter egos)

I have a question. How many of you out there have an alter ego. Someone you use to write your stories/poems, someone you turn to in times of shyness. Maybe even some one you use to help you be funny, funnier. I have a few, the one I use the most has an English accent. However I can also turn out the voices of a Spanish, Italian, Irish, red neck……you get the picture. I have always thought it would be funny to go to a fairly nice restaurant with a group of friends. I would warn them first of course, but every time the waiter came out  to the table. I would use a different accent. Just to mess with the guy. (yes it would have to be a waiter not a waitress and preferably one with a very slight sense of humor). For instance, when he first comes to the table you know they always take your drink order first. So…in an English tone I would order ice tea.” I do believe I would like to try some of your American tea.” Then when he brought the drinks out I would look at him and simply ask, in a south of the border tone…”Hey man what’s this man?” to which he would reply “that’s your ice tea sir.” “I ordered this, do I look like a man that would order ice tea Holmes? Next time bring me un cerveza por favor.”  As I am sure by now the waiter is either slightly curious, irritated, or both. I probably have him wondering “what’s next?” As he goes around the table taking everyone’s  order I will go last and use an Italian accent this time. As I order I will talk about how great my momma used to make this stuff. When it comes time for the dessert phase I will ask about the different items using a red neck style accent and just to sell it I would mispronounce all the items on the list. When leaving the restaurant I would use my real voice to say good-bye.

Disclaimer: Although I may have a few different alter egos. I do, however, have only one personality. I am confident that this behavior will in no way lead to a split personality. We are sure of it…..er…I mean…I am sure of it.

About Bigboomer

Hello, first of all I would like to thank you for visiting my blogsite. I am going to tell you a little about me. My name is Ray, I started writing back in high school. Every once in a while I would come up with a few ideas and would write them down. Most of which became poems others became short stories. Some of my inspirations are of the heart, some of them come from the thoughts of the day. You will see, as you browse threw my site my poetry is about as diverse as you can get. I hope that as you read them some will have you thinking of love, while others will make you feel sorrow. I would like some of them to set you off to an adventure. Finally, I have some poems that may make you hungry. I do have some inspirations that just plane turn into ramblings or rants as, if you read in here, you will see. I have managed to get two books published so far, the first one is titled Pathways, it may be found at xlibris.com/RayBohdan.html. there you can view a couple of excerpts form the book. The second book is Mingling Hues of My Mind it is at publish America A little bit more about me. I am fifty-one years old I have three children, Rainney, Elisa, and Anthony and two well, actually, three grandchildren Raeanne Marie, Graycee, and Amaya. I guess I could go on, but then I am afraid this will come out sounding like a dating profile. Part of my site will be dedicated to my poetry, I plan to break it down into different sections and organize it by type/style. Another section of this site will be dedicated to my blog it will be about my rants/thoughts of the day. These will vary from political, to personal, to comical. I will talk about most anything and everything that I feel may be of interest to someone. I also will devote a section to some of my favorite recipes with hints on how to capture his/her heart by winning their stomach. My favorite foods are Italian and Mexican, but this section will not be limited to those two types. I do believe however, that the most important part of my site will be the dedication pages. These will be to memorialize special loved ones and friends, as well as thank those that have made purchases of my afore-mentioned book. This is exactly what you think it is. A way for me to sell my self as a writer. Publicly get my words and thoughts out into the world. Please believe me when I say that this in no way demeans or diminishes my passions for the people and the love of which I have written, and will continue to write. I trust that once you read my poems you will feel the love i have felt, the pains I have been through, and the joys of life itself. Once again I thank you for stopping by please enjoy.
