Before you read our post about the above picture, you have to hear the background. I was feeling pretty sad about my mixer since I’ve had it for as long as I can remember. I needed to write a post, so in an effort to lift my spirit, I decided to write a parody about it. Those who know me, know that this is one of my quirky ways of humoring myself–and it usually works.
I didn’t think Tom would actually let me post this, since I was playing around not really being serious. A couple of minutes ago, (it’s 9:52p on Monday night) I told Tom that I didn’t think he would let me post what I had just written–a parody about my mixer. He started laughing from the kitchen telling me to come see what he was doing. He was on Craig’s List looking for a replacement mixer for me. 🙂 We laughed and decided to share my little song with you. I guess having only a couple more pieces of pie in the fridge is countdown enough for him.
He knows me well and cares for me in such practical ways. Maybe it’s because I serenade him with such songs as this soon-to-be classic:
An Ode To My Faithful Mixer
(Sung to American Pie, by Don Mclean)
A long, long time ago
I can still remember how my mixer used to make me smile
And I knew if I had my chance I could bake great things from France
We’d be fat and happy for awhile.
But yesterday made me shiver
With every whip my mixer quivered
Smoke poured out the motor
Bad News–parts can’t be ordered
Something burned up deep inside
The day my mixer D.I.E.D.
I started singing…
Bye, bye, my American pies
Drove my mixer to the limit, and I think I could cry
Good ol’ seven quart went burning down with a sigh
Saying, “This would be the day that it died.”
Well done! Hope you found that new mixer…
I’ll post an update on our FB page when we do. Hopefully along with a freshly baked pie! 🙂
Did somebody say “pie”??? Yes please!
And I hope the new mixer is as well made as the old mixer!
Me, too, Jason. But I don’t think they make them like that anymore. Besides, it was a real commercial counter-top mixer Tom rebuilt for me from his work. But whatever I get will be better than nothing.
LOL – you had me singin’! (silently, inside – only in my own head am I in tune!)
Lori – You crack me up! LOL
LOL! This is great! I love my mixer too, but I ‘m sure Gerad wished I made more pie 🙂
Pies are sure addicting. Thanks for stopping by and lamenting with me.
I’ll never burn up another appliance without thinking of you!
Now I’ve truly succeeded. I love to be associated with burning things. 🙂
That’s so cute! I hope your new mixer brings lots of yummy memories too.
Oh so do I. Thanks for commenting.
You are hilarious! I’m going to start sending you my disasters so you can right happy songs about them =)
Mel, I tried that for your 40th BD remember?
Loved it you crack me up.
That is so cleverly funny!
Why thank you!
