Thoughtful Tuesday – Life’s a Musical or Not

If life were a musical we could break out in song for every occasion. My child’s birth might have come complete with me dancing for joy right after pushing the sucker out. Unfortunately life isn’t. That doesn’t stop me from wondering though-what’s the theme song to my life story, at least today. Hmmm- well I think today it’s Help!by the Beatles.

Help, I need somebody,
Help, not just anybody,
Help, you know I need someone, help.

When I was younger, so much younger than today,
I never needed anybody’s help in any way.
But now these days are gone, I’m not so self assured,
Now I find I’ve changed my mind and opened up the doors.

Help me if you can, I’m feeling down
And I do appreciate you being round.
Help me, get my feet back on the ground,
Won’t you please, please help me.

And now my life has changed in oh so many ways,
My independence seems to vanish in the haze.
But every now and then I feel so insecure,
I know that I just need you like I’ve never done before.

Help me if you can, I’m feeling down
And I do appreciate you being round.
Help me, get my feet back on the ground,
Won’t you please, please help me.

When I was younger, so much younger than today,
I never needed anybody’s help in any way.
But now these daya are gone, I’m not so self assured,
Now I find I’ve changed my mind and opened up the doors.

Help me if you can, I’m feeling down
And I do appreciate you being round.
Help me, get my feet back on the ground,
Won’t you please, please help me, help me, help me, oh.”

Can you imagine a crazed mom with curlers in her hair, two children crying, dinner burning, and whatever else. This is how I imagine the scene- I stop what i’m doing, the kids freeze, and I break out in my plea. Maybe in a fifties kitchen. I’d twirl in my dress and end up looking forlorn on a chair in the end when life comes back. No I’m not wearing curlers for real and yes I’ve spent too much time thinking of this.

What’s your song and what life event would you die laughing about had it had its own ballad and dance number?
