i feel pretty

i feel pretty

When you are primping for a night out or a date, do you ever sing a song? I always do. The exact same song everytime.

My buddy Titi was sitting in the hut when I stood before the mirror making sure the five o’clock shadow was just right. I started singing my song.

He stood up yelling, threatening to leave.

Weeks ago, my daughter did the same thing to me. “DAD, THAT’S NOT FUNNY”.

I will let you decide. Not much into musicals, but I always sing my favorite song from West Side Story.

“I feel pretty
Oh so pretty
I feel pretty
And witty
And gaaaaaay
And I pity any girl who isn’t me today.”

Thoughts anyone?

  1. I adore that song… the entire movie/musical.
    Lol! No, I don’t sing that when I get ready to go out.
    There are a lot of songs in my repertoire, but only the cats enjoy them. You are very funny!

  2. Weird. I have the feeling I already commented on this post. But I can’t see liking it. Haha πŸ˜€

    I’m also not into musical, but I’m loving the west side clip. It’s old, calming and funny. There’s something about the videos from the past that just make it so timeless.

    And no, I don’t always sing when primping but occasionally I do, especially when I’m in good mood.


      1. Thanks Drew ❀

        I think I've read your post. Thought of commenting and forgot haha πŸ˜€ yep still deja me…

        What song I sing varies. Sometimes cheerful, sometimes melancholic (even when I'm in a great mood πŸ˜‚)

  3. I just found your blog today. I must say I am very impressed by your writing. You have become one of my favorite poets very quickly.
    This post caught my eye though. I love “I feel pretty”. My boyfriend sings this song to me all the time. This really made my night. Even though I have never seen the musical (which I must add I really want to) this is one of my favorite songs.


      I have been singing this song for years. Can’t explain it, but I do.
      You have to see the musical. It really is a beautiful love story.

      Favorite poet? You are m uch too kind. Thank you for your beautiful words, praise,
      and visit. Si glad to meet you. Hope we can have more exchanges in ther future.
      Thank you for your kindness.

      Please, stay safe.


  4. I remember growing up my cousin would get really mad at me because I would go to every room in the house just to give myself a look in each of the mirrors. I would torment and drop some God, I look good line in front of her. Lol She’d say, Ash, you know you look good, now get out of my room, why do you do that? This post reminded me of that…I’m sure there was a song in there somewhere too. Nowadays though, I don’t feel like the mirror has the same effect lol. But, I still feel pretty!!!
