Kickin’ it Old School Today

It’s a good thing my fridge song was inspired by Apple Day last week. My parents and I were listening to a Peter, Paul & Mary album and swore there was a track done by The Mamas & The Papas on the CD. We came to the conclusion at the end that they must have collaborated for that song. Anyways, I then got “California Dreamin'” in my head and wrote the song spoof on Monday, which is good because I had to make 65 gift bags, ship a ton of packages, attend a meeting about blogger outreach and work on those God-forsaken, company Christmas cards (I’ve hand-written almost 50 addresses so far!)!

Joie totally outdid herself this week by creating a less cartoony and more colorful illustration for me! I love it so much, that the portrait is now my Facebook profile pic! Feel free to friend me, and so long as you don’t work in my office (That’s just unsafe), I’ll add you! I love to make friends! I have to say, having a personal illustrator as my best friend is the best thing since sliced bread, cinnamon raisin bread at that…with apple butter…at the Waffle House with cheesy eggs and hash browns. That’s love.

This makes me WANT to clean the fridge!

 Illustrated by my best friend, Joie Brown!

Prentice Will be Cleanin’
To “California Dreamin” by The Mamas & The Papas

 All the cheese is brown,
Sheppard’s pie turned grey.
I’ll go for a walk,
Later on today.

Don’t be misinformed.
I will come save the day.
Prentice will be cleanin’,
at five fifteen, Friday!

So, please stop by the fridge,
You’ll pass along the way.
Please, grab your cream cheese and peas,
and your berry puree.

You know your pasta will grow mold,
and will be thrown away.
Prentice will be cleanin’,
at five fifteen, Friday!

Your Chinese turned brown,
and Pad Thai is grey.
I’ll go for a walk,
Later on today.

Don’t say I didn’t tell you!
Before you leave today,
Prentice will be cleanin’,
at five fifteen, Friday!
