A Few of My Favorite Things, Today

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens
Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens
Brown paper packages tied up with strings
These are a few of my favorite things

Cream colored ponies and crisp apple streudels
Doorbells and sleigh bells and schnitzel with noodles
Wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings
These are a few of my favorite things

Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes
Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes
Silver white winters that melt into springs
These are a few of my favorite things

When the dog bites
When the bee stings
When I’m feeling sad
I simply remember my favorite things
And then I don’t feel so bad

I never quite understood this song.  It has a nice melody but Maria’s (from the Sound of Music) favorite things are just not relevant any more.  Sure, back in the early 1940’s these things would make many simpletons happy but as I heard this song on the radio, it gets lots of play during the holidays, I couldn’t help wonder what Maria’s favorite things would be today.  Hmmm,

Boyfriends who love me and Taylor Swift tickets
Rudolph the Reindeer and Island of Misfits
Getting in engaged with four caret rings
These are a few of my favorite things

Starbucks lattes and 65 inch TVs
Mini iPads and iTunes no CDs
Labordoodle dogs that hang on purse strings
These are a few of my favorite things

Other girl bitches who know that I’m it
I walk this earth and I don’t give a shit
Did I mention I have diamond rings?
These are a few of my favorite things

When my credit’s maxed
When I’m strung out
When I’m feeling pissed
I simply remember my favorite things
And maybe my boyfriend will get kissed…
