    What does your name say about you?

    More from joanniebalon

    Real name or nickname?

     

    My first name was given at birth and my last name came along with being married to my husband.

     

    My joke name on several accounts is joanniebaloney or joanniebalonie. Why? Because I have a history of trying to make people laugh and one of my sons told me that I shouldn't try to. Just being myself with all my grammar mistakes and naivety would be enough to make anyone laugh.

     

    I have always thought it was my job or calling to make other laugh, because how can one take life so seriously?

     

    In my aging process I find that what I thought was my job or calling is not necessarily so.
