Sometimes I don't know who I am. 

Joe. Joe Bloggs. Joebloggs. Joexbloggs.

What happened before there were like, letters and alphabets? Humans have been around longer. How did they think of themselves?

And how did others think of them?

Probably how my father thought of his children: 'Hey! Number two, come here! Number three, run to the shop and get my cigarettes!' (You could in those days.) Hey, number one, have you washed the car yet?'

He had to resort to numbers because names were too hard. He used to run through the whole list of all the others' names before he'd remember the right one for the right child.

He must have been channelling Pre-Alphabet Man.

That's a throwback. Makes all the subsequent warring between nations seem a bit unnecessary.

'Cos we all bros, dude.

is it time for a nap yet? i think so
