The 12 Days of You Know What – MWitF Version

I tinkered with the lyrics, you know the tune.

Everybody sing along!

On the 12th day of Christmas, my true love gave to me:

12 months of a patient husband
11 wandering characters
10 journals overflowing
9 thousand emails blinking
8 parties tempting
7 overdue library books
6 social networks friending
5 miles on the treadmill!!!
4 kids doing laundry
3 long to-do lists
2 pots of coffee
1 killer novel deadline

What is your version of the song?

  5. Haha! Oh man. Seven or eight years ago, my mom and I collaborated on a parody of that song called “The 12 Days of Stemcells” ’cause my sister was in the hospital getting a stemcell transplant. I can’t remember how it goes, and the paper that it was written on is lost somewhere, which is a shame. It was really funny.
    I think for “5”, it was something like “Five doctors on call!”
