Happy Things!!!

So, you know how I’ve been just staying in bed crying for about oh, five of the last five days? Well, it’s given me a headache and terrible hat head (without the hat) so I’ve been looking for something, for anything really, that will cheer me up. And I’ve found TWO things that seriously make me thankful to be here and really wanna stick around so I can enjoy them. Are you ready for them?? The first is that Grease is going to be live broadcast on NBC in 2016! Yes, Grease. I know it’s not Shakespeare, but hello!!!! It’s Danny and Sandy! And Rizzo and Frenchy and Greased Lightning. Oh my. I first saw this movie back in 1978 when I was in the 8th grade and my mom took me to see it. Then I went to see it again that week. I think that I went to the theater over a dozen times that month. I knew almost every word to the movie and to the songs. I say almost every word because a year after the movie came out, my mom bought me the book. It was like a big picture book and it had all the words to all the songs. Now, remember that this was waaay before you could just google the lyrics. It came to my attention that I had one song completely and totally wrong. You know that song when Sandy is in black leather the last day of school? The song “You’re The One That I Want”? Yep, I sang loud and proud “You’re The Wizard of O”! Imagine my surprise to find out that not only did MY version make no sense, but it was totally wrong. Oh well. I still looked great rocking those “Sandy” bangs!! The other wonderful, unbelievable thing is that “they” (people I don’t know) have discovered the original draft of To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee!!!! And they are going to publish it this summer!!! I know that I might sound disproportionately happy over these two upcoming events, but at least Im smiling! And smiles have been getting harder and harder to come by these days! So I need to pull myself together. I will follow all of the doctor’s orders. Because I want to enjoy both of these wonderful events! And I’m even going to throw a watching party for Grease. In truth, it will be a watching/giggling/dancing/singing party. Yep, I will be belting out “You’re the Wizards of O” ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh🎶🎶🎵🎵🎶🎤
