for john

I've had a blog request,
I've only done this once before.

It comes from my bbf Gigi's son.
His name is John.

John sent me some pics to go along with the post.
I think he's hoping to embarrass his little sister.

Actually, he's probably just hoping that she will slow down while driving.

Yeah, I'm sure it's all in love!

So this is for John....

I wrote it to the tune of Gilligan's Island.
I showed it to Mac after I was done and she says she doesn't know the tune.

Ugh! Teenagers!

Well, I'm not changing it now.
so for my teens readers out there...
if don't know the Gilligan's Island theme song then
you're lame click here

ok so here you go John....

* * * * * * *

Just sit right back and you'll hear a tale,
a tale of a fateful leap

That started on a snowy day
aboard this little "heap".

The chauffeur was a mighty driver,
with 11 months under her belt

and a passenger that she picked up that day
offering a ride to help.

she's always willing to help

* * * * * *

The weather started getting warm
the snow turning into slush.

if not for the skillful driving
the little heap would 'of been lost.
the little heap would 'of been lost

* * * * * * *

The heap's aground on some uncharted Pfizer land,
with Marie...
and Mac too...
a couple cute college boys stopping by....

two Pfizer "cops".....

a real close tree,

a helping dad and brother John

here on Pfizer land.

* * * * * * *

So this is the tale of two stranded girls
they were there for a long, long time

they had to make the best of things
because a tow they could not find

The offers of help were plenty
by each good Samaritan passing by

but when they realized how far they were stuck
they only waved and said good bye!

No daddies! No money! No tow trucks!
Don't want to pay for that luxury!

Like two typical teenagers
an accident they could never foresee.

So join me to tell these girls to slow down
and take winter driving seriously.

Because cars and broken tow straps can be replaced
but these sweet girls could never be!

Tori, you're amazing.

Except for that whole, "Mac doesn't know Gilligan" thing. But, no one is a perfect parent, and--as I say of my own child to comfort myself daily--she ain't raised yet! There's still time to learn classic TV theme songs.

I love your writing!

That was hilarious.

otin said...

That was so great! I sang the whole thing in my head.

When you grow up in snow country, you will always have those problems.

Brian Miller said...

whew that was a close tree...could have been a whole lot worse...but do slow down. though i did enjoy the song. smiles.

Daffy said...

I sang the whole thing! Awesome!

I'm thinking this would be a great public service they still do those after school specials?

Did I just date myself? Geez....I think I'm old....

blueviolet said...

I can't believe I sang it! Yes, I can. It was fun too!

Perhaps songwriting on the side is something you should look into?

shortmama said...

I was singing that whole time! Glad they were ok!

Barb said...

Seems kind of sad that our kids don't know Gilligan. Glad everyone was alright!

Tracie said...

I sang it in my head. (And that tune will be in my head all day.) That was a close one!

leigh said...

That was awesome! I even sang it out loud. My baby enjoyed it.

Tracie said...

I sang this out loud......receiving many strange looks from my family.

How do people not know the Gilligan's Island tune? Crazy!

Sue said...

I loved the new words to the tune and also sang it all the way through. But I was just thinking this poor girl and I could relate on many levels (as a driver, as a parent) and then....the last picture....I know her!!! Oh my! I hadn't heard about this, but then again, she's not in any of my classes this year! So glad God protected all of them!

Excellent! I always love a good rhyme. I know what you mean about kids not knowing about the good ole days. Who doesn't love Gilligan's Island.

Great post.
