A Few Of My Favorite Things

Who among us didn’t LOVE The Sound of Music? (well, those of you my age)
     Scrappy young Maria, so innocent, so beautiful. 
     What a passive aggressive hottie- the perfect postulant- or is she? 
     Thankfully she’s guided by the wise Mother Abbess (who I suspect had been around the block a few times before joining the convent) to explore the outside world before committing  (I think the Mother could run Dr. Phil out of town on this alone).
     It’s arranged for her to governess a brood of amazingly gorgeous and talented children, in a lake side mansion, which is home to the handsome and passionate (but stedfast) widower Captain von Trapp. 
     They fall in love, develop a world-class family singing act (which they use to thwart the Nazis), get married, have great sex, and escape to the USA (with the children, of course. This is 1940. Today- ?).
     Can you say ‘God Bless America’? 
     One of my favorite songs, when I was little, was My Favorite Things.
     I’m all grown up, and have changed the verse to better express the times.
     It goes something like this:

      Vendex on roses and micro-chiped kittens
Worthless brown pennies and micro-fiber mittens
Brown paper packages hiding good gins
These are a few of my favorite things
Cream colored molars and genetically altered streudels
Doorbells and wack jobs and gluten in noodles
Grey Goose that flies in my mouth as it sings
These are a few of my favorite things
Girls in white zip-thongs with tramp stamp ‘me’ sashes
Snowflakes that stay on my windshield and eyelashes
 Wars that melt into Arab springs
These are a few of my favorite things
When the dog stings
When the bee bites
When I’m feeling mad
I simply remember my favorite things
And then I don’t feel so bad
