I don’t have any new adventures for you today because yesterday was spent inside, staying still and drinking ice water. Not terribly exciting! But I got inspired to make another parody (that means a funny song) of “My Favorite Things” from The Sound of Music.
My Heat Wave Favorite Things
Eating ice cream on the floor in the dark
Dreaming of walking in Laurelhurst Park
Finding the river and jumping right in
We do it when Portland’s One hundred and ten!
Director’s Park Fountain’s an island of cools,
Go there! ‘cause the city has closed all the pools,
Trolleys are melting and streets start to bend
This is what happens at One hundred and ten.
When the sun bakes, for your own sakes,
Stay in if you can
Come back out to Portland when things have cooled down
And then we will feeeeeeeeel so grand!
I hope you are staying happy and cool!
