Are you a T-crosser

And I-dotter?

Do you jump right in,

Or first test the water?


Are you the town crier,

Or always the last to know?

Are you stuck in the nitty gritty,

Or just going with the flow?


Do you check the weather (and bring a sweater),

Or play it by ear,

Cause you sure know better?


Do you keep up with the news — every horror show,

Or are on a media diet —

You’d rather not know?


Do you dress to the nines,

Or it’s plain ole dressed down?

Couch potato days,

Or running about town?


When you look in the mirror,

Does it smile back at you?

You are one in zillion!

(I hope you know it too.)
