Apologies to the Dreidel Song

I should be celebrating Hanukkah. I'm glad there are eight days. And I'm glad germs and whatnot are not communicable via computer screen.

I can't write inspirationally just now. But I can leave you with this song...or else what's left of it....

Sung to the Dreidel tune.

My little gift to you...

The Extra Strength Cold Medicine Dreidel Song

I have a little dreidel
I made it out of clay
And when it's dry and ready My fever and bronchitis
Then dreidel I shall play! have not yet gone away

chorus:Oh - dreidel, dreidel, dreidel
I made it out of clay
And when it's dry and ready I'm more or less contagious
Then dreidel I shall play! I'll cough the other way

It has a lovely body I want to light the candles
With legs so short and thin but breathing's no delight
And when my dreidel’s tired if I torched my inhaler
It drops and then I win! I'd conflagrate the night

chorus

My dreidel’s always playful my stomach's feeling playful
It loves to dance and spin an ache is in my head
A happy game of dreidel I quickly quaff my NyQuil
Come play now, let’s begin! and shuffle off to bed


I knew it....
you can't get the tune out of your head, can you??

Me <--------an ornery little cuss when I don't feel good-- but you can't hit me...I'm sick!!(heh heh)

Sorry you're feeling poorly, but your song cheered me up.

Oh, and not only that I got my mail and the best thing there was a delightful holiday card to ME!!!!!

OK, it was the best thing UNTIL... yeah, I got my Baker Creek Heriloom Seed catalog! :) So you were sooooooo in the running for BEST until then. :)

Just kidding. Happy holidays my dear friend. Hope you feel better soon.

Brian has a bit of a cold so isn't getting as many holiday treats as he would like; sounds like you have it much worse and I'm sorry to hear that!

Your version of the dreidel song is really creative! (inspired by the Nyquil?) :) I hope you're feeling lots better soon!!

Lisa, wow I so hope you are healing and that I don't have to come have a little talk with a certain in-law at your house...let me know if there needs to be a throw-down! ha Take it easy on that knee and kiss your horse for me when you can make it back out there. YOu'll be in my prayers as you heal!
