Just to let you know how important Someone Else has been in my life:
When I was born, my mom didn’t name me: Someone Else did.
When I was growing up at school, the kids would never pick me in games. They always picked Someone Else.
Whenever I fell in love with a guy; he would always choose Someone Else.
I applied to many jobs these past weeks; but the prospective employer’s letters came back saying they had selected Someone Else for the positions.
I played the Powerball and Someone Else won.
I’m starting to feel that Someone Else is following me wherever I go.
I just wish that whenever I have to pay a bill; Someone Else would have to pay it. But that’s where Someone Else never shows up…
So whenever you feel that Someone Else is taking away your stuff; just remember that Somebody Else is going through the same situation.
