Musicals IRL: “My Favorite Things” — Apartment Edition

Raid drops on roaches and whiskers on rodents

Loud, blaring sirens that make termites slow dance

Ikea furniture held up by strings

These are a few of my favorite things

 

Cream curdled badly and meals of Cheez Doodles

Doorbells and weed smells and stale instant noodles

Wifi that crashes with all my mood swings

These are a few of my favorite things

 

Dirty white dresses turned grey from the laundry

Snowflakes that fall through the roof to land on me

Faded white mattresses with broken springs

These are a few of my favorite things

 

When the cat calls

When the rent stings

When I’m feeling sad

I simply remember my favorite things

And then I just feel …

Much worse.

 

thnx Rodgers and Hammerstein for the inspiration
