So the song “a few of my favorite things” doesn’t just talk about nice things like raindrops on roses and brown paper packages tied up with string, it also includes a rather rotten list of non-favorites. You know, bee stings and dog bites and such.
I have one non-favorite to add to the next remix of the song: when your kid wakes up in the middle of the night and you finally get him back to sleep and into his crib, and you make it out of his room, close the door, creep back to your room and get into bed… only to have him wake up screaming again right when your head hits the pillow.
Not sure how they’d fit that into the song. But it belongs there. Because it is definitely not a favorite thing.
