Cheesy Song of the Day, October 13:
I came up with the Cheesy Song of the Day Project on January 1, 2012 while I was having a Diane Keaton worthy meltdown. Bawling my heart out and I was able to come up with an idea that would force me to write every single day–that’s what makes me! (Digression: Ugh. Ugh. Ugh! I’m sick of the me that feels lousy most of the time. Ugh!) When I feel good, I write more about the cheesy song of the day, my mood or life in general. When I feel lousy, I write short little missives. I don’t feel good about the shortness because I feel like I’m cheating on the project. I do!
But sometimes it can’t be helped. Life with its mysteries and heartbreaks overwhelms.
I selected ‘The Candy Man’ because 1. it’s Sammy Davis Jr. and 2. I needed a lift.
