I was feeling kind of low today over something that’s really disappointing. I knew I’m going to feel better somehow and this image of my sister set it right. She’s in San Diego right now for a short vacation. She told me happy, inspiring tales. Just what I needed to keep me up.
My classmates in college used to call me ‘Julie Andrews’ because my nickname was Julie [now its Jules] and when they did it, I blurted ‘the hills are live with the song of moooseeekkk” and we had a blast.
Back when I was new at work, one of my co-teachers [now retired] called me ‘Julie Andrews’ when she wanted to make small talk. One time, I didn’t just blurt the classic song but I also did the classic Julie Andrews’ twist pretending I was on a hill. She was almost scandalized because she thought I was kind of demure.
Call me ‘Julie Andrews’ anytime. And you’ll see my version of Maria von Trapp.
