My Favorite Things (with sincere apologies to Julie Andrews)


After hearing this song played one million times so far this Christmas season, I thought I would give my own personal spin to this much-loved holiday classic, so here goes:

MY FAVORITE THINGS

Yoga and sushi and David Sedaris,
Drinking strong coffee on my backyard terrace,
Listening to music while eating hot wings,
These are a few of my favorite things.

Black shirts and black shoes and bell-bottomed blue jeans,
Joan Jett and Neko and garden-fresh green beans,
All of the creatures from "Lord of the Rings",
These are a few of my favorite things.

Children that sleep late and frosty beer glasses,
Mascara that gives me those long, luscious lashes,
Red wine and Youtube and running in spring,
These are a few of my favorite things.

When the dogs bark,
When my hair's flat,
When Fox News makes me mad,
I simply remember my favorite things,
And then I don't feel so bad.

Watching my five-year-old girl pick up lizards,
Snape and sweet Harry, my two favorite wizards,
Watching the ocean from our beach house swing,
These are a few of my favorite things.

When the heat's out,
When my knees ache,
When my car sounds sad,
I simply remember my favorite things,
And then I don't feel so bad.

Sorry Julie...
