The one where she starts the day with her favourite things

Bread in the toaster and warm milk in coffee
Such a nice breakfast, it's better than toffee!
Reusable bag with the lunch that I brings
Good planning is one of my favourite things

Hair in a ponytail, roots need a touch up
Can't do my own, too important to fuck up
Back to my old stylist after two flings
My hairdresser's one of my favourite things

Painted toes in my sandals peek out, pretty blue
At the place 'round the corner they'll paint yours up too
A nice summer outfit that swishes and swings,
Good grooming is one of my favourite things

When the train stops
When the AC breaks
When I'm feeling mad
I simply remember my favourite things
And then I don't feel so bad

As a hairdresser (ret since Dec.) I love the second stanza! Now that you made us all sing, what will you do next? hahahahaha
Very, very entertaining and really well done!

This is EXACTLY what I'd planned to do for this week's topic...but you did it perfectly, so I can't even grumble. GREAT job! :O)

*chuckle* Love the vision of all of us doing our very best Julie Andrews whilst singing your words! Good grooming doesn't get a foothold around me, but I love seeing it in other people and you captured it beautifully.

Are you writing about me? :)

I still like brown paper packages tied up with string.

The Host said...

Thanks all! And apologies to those who were humming and twirling at work after reading along. I did think about an audio post but then realized you nice people had done nothing to deserve such torture.

WordNerd, I'm sure you can kick my ass in a verse writing contest. :)

Mike, as long as they're not flaming on your door step I think that's OK.
