spark of vivacity Hey guys – and I do truly hope you’re not offended by me generalizing and calling you all ‘guys’ rather than saying ‘guys and girls’….personally, I always hated it when someone made a special effort to say ‘and girls’ if I was the only girl in a group of guys, so that is why I say “hey guys”….because ‘guys’, in my mind, is unisex.

Annnnnywho, wiith that random tidbit out of the way, Alex made a fantastic suggestion to me the other day that I’ve decided to write about for you guys….and hopefully you’ll enjoy it – I know in my wandering for appropriate images, I’ve strolled through quite the memory lane. Tres amusing!!!

And so, without further adieu, I bring you…..TONGUE TWISTERS!!!!! (applaud)

We have the classics:

Peter piper picked a pack of pickeled peppers,
If Peter Piper picked a pack of pickeled peppers,
How many peppers did Peter Piper pick?

Fuzzy Wuzzy
Fuzzy Wuzzy was a bear,
Fuzzy Wuzzy had no hair,
Fuzzy Wuzzy wasn’t fuzzy, was he?

And of course the noble woodchuck, though I’ll let you people remember that one fondly in your head….

And then we have our tribute the the great amazing one – the suplendious Dr. Seuss!

Luke Luck likes lakes.
Luke’s duck likes lakes.
Luke Luck licks lakes.
Luck’s duck licks lakes.
Duck takes licks in lakes Luke Luck likes.
Luke Luck takes licks in lakes duck likes.
…what a crazy random guy – he’s Awesome!!

And for my finale – something that you can sing along with…..and feel very Canadian at the same time, may I present, Miss Mari-Mac by Great Big Sea

….Ok – I can’t resist, memory lane gave me a blip to a song that I remember thinking was the most hilarious song ever, Miss Lucy had a steamboat:
Miss Lucy had a steam boat
The steamboat had a bell,
Miss Lucy went to heaven and the
Steamboat went to…

Behind the ‘fridgerator
There was a piece of glass
Miss Lucy sat upon it
And she cut her big fat…
Ask me no more questions
I’ll tell you no more lies

Flies are in the meadow
The bees are in the park
Miss Lucy and her boyfriend

Dark is like a movie
A movie’s like a show
A show is like a tv set
And that is all I know!
