Right now, Miya, my four year old, is standing in front of the television singing "my favorite things" with Oprah. "When the dog bites, when the bee stings, when I'm feeling sad, I simply remember my favorite things and then I don't feel so bad."
I loved the audience reaction when they realized that it was a "favorite things" episode. I used to make fun of the screams and tears, but I would have totally reacted in the same way. I used to live in Chicago but never got a chance visit Oprah. I understand the effectiveness of acquiring nice things when you are feeling bad. I have been doing a lot of online and mall shopping lately. I will calm down on the shopping in 2011. I would have loved to get Oprah's favorite things though!
This episode reminded me of Saturday Night Live's sketch about Oprah and her favorite things...Enjoy!
