My Favorite Things

I’ve always loved musicals, and although I never saw The Sound of Music, I really like My Favorite Things. I was introduced to it… I am ashamed to say… by a Dove commercial I got to watch a thousand times while catching up on ABC.com replays of my favorite shows, which is how I watch TV in the absence of a TV.
It was there that I got the idea of coming up with my own adaptation (compare to the original version here). Something in the song’s format resonated with me on a deep level as my experience of happiness too is highly tactile. So here goes, my grand poetic endeavor:
When the kids whine,
When the bath stinks,
When I’m feeling sad
I simply remember my favorite things
And then I don’t feel so bad!
Now imagine me singing this in a thick Russian accent…
