My Favorite Things

If you had to name your top favorite things, and then write a song about them, what would they be? Here's what Maria did with that assignment:

1. Raindrops on roses
2. Whiskers on kittens
3. Bright copper kettles
4. Warm woolen mittens
5. Brown paper packages tied up with strings
6. Cream colored ponies
7. Crisp apple streudels
8. Doorbells
9. Sleigh bells
10. Schnitzel with noodles
11. Wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings
12. Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes
13. Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes
14. Silver white winters that melt into springs

That's it -- her favorite things, all fourteen of them. If I were Maria, my list of favorite things could have been even shorter and still would have been better, given the story of her life:

1. Sick Nazis
2. Dead Nazis
3. Schnitzel with noodles (a girl's gotta eat)
