Favorite Things

Favorite Things

A Chapter by Dave Brown



When BG said

“That’s one of my favorite things”

With things indicating more than one

It confused me because

I always thought a favorite thing

Was a one off type of deal


Now I wondered just how many

Favorite things a person could have


Too many favorite things

Would seem to dilute the whole

With, perhaps too few,

Being a waste of ‘favorite thing’ space


I got wondering about my favorite thing

And thought, were I lying in the middle

Of a parched desert on the verge of

Terminal heat expiration

For the want of some water

Then water would be the no.1


But if I were in a climate where

The rain never stopped pouring

Then the thing would most likely be

Some really nice, warm sunlight


Total contradiction


So, in the perfect climate

What could that favorite thing be;

                   A reversal in hair loss


             Being able to lean over far enough

             To trim my toe nails


                  Double chocolate, cake donuts

                  For sure

But in the real world

A million bucks wouldn’t hurt

Possibly even ‘two’

I know I can’t take it with me John

But I’ll worry about that, when and if

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens
"Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens
Brown paper packages tied up with strings
These are a few of my favorite things"

Also, a million dollars would be acceptable. Hair is pretty good still
