The Hills are Alive

The Hills are Alive...with the sounds of Meltdowns!
The cries I have heard...for a thousand years!
The hills feel my head...with the sound of screeching!

My legs want to run away from the sound of your voice,
As you flail on the ground,
My soul wants to get in the car and drive away,
Until I finally. get. peace.

I run to the hills, when my heart is heavy.
I know you will scream, like you screamed before!
My ears will soon bleed...with the sound of meltdowns!
And I'll drink. once. more.

***
D'oh
A kid! A red-faced kid!
Re!
A juice box in the eye!
Me!
I don't know who that is!
Fa!
I really need to run!
Sew!
Your whiny mouth closed please!
La
A way to say. L.A.!
Tea!
It needs a drop of rum!
That will take us back to D'oh!

You have an exceptionally bright future ahead of you! I've heard that the tantrums stop when they graduate from college.

OMG!!! Nancy! This makes me want to bear your children. Seriously. Hilarious. Seriously. Your screaming, red-faced children. Seriously. You know, if the gender thing wasn't such a mess and if I could bear children and if I weren't madly in love with Leo and if the universe was colored in shades of purple and blue and....

Ok, so you made my day. I hope this manic comment doesn't end our virtual friendship forever. I have not been drinking (virtual or otherwise) though after taking that wacky little jaunt, I'm thinking I may need one. You must have thrown me with the love thing. All kidding aside, I love you too Nancy C. It's like kismet, or something.

I can only echo Ms. Moon's comment. Truly.

The Do Rae Me song is the very best ever song that I have ever had the pleasure of reading in my whole entire life.

Tracie said...

You are too friggin' funny.

Bekah said...

In the words of my wise (and wise-ass) grandmother, "This too shall pass". Usually said to me when I am having a day like yours and all I really want her to say is, "Honey, I'll be right there to pick up the kids".

Mama Zen said...
