Welcome to Teapot Tuesday
the Sisterhood of the Traveling Teaparty
and Challenge #444
What a Beautiful Sound
Note: Anyone is welcome to play! You automatically become a Teapotter the first time you play in our challenge. Also, you do not have to write a story. You just have to be inspired by the teapot or by the story about this week's location! Have fun! If this is your first Teapot Tuesday Challenge, please mention that in your commentary so we can be sure to greet you properly, in pure Teapot Tuesday fashion! Your participation in Destination Station is 100% voluntary and not at all required. Just have fun!
The Rest of the Story:
1: Miss Mary is someone who is always upbeat and joyful. She always has a smile on her face and a song in her heart. Well, and sometimes in her head too. That can be a real problem; when you're an upbeat person and a bummer song gets stuck there. Or when you're trying to sing to your plants to keep them growing so lush, and "Raindrops in the City" keeps playing on the loop in your brain. Or when you want to practice piano and Congo drums keeps running through your mind.
2: Some days Miss Mary feels like beating her head against a wall or going into hospital for the new-fangled electric shock treatment she has heard of and see if that will kill the psycho musician in her head. But she's heard that the wall is hard and hurts and the shock treatment sometimes changes your memory and "Lord knows, I don't need any more problems with that".
3: But this latest string of dirges music in her head is really not helping her maintain her joyful outlook.
Musical notes, a few bars or an entire score; uplifting music and encouraging words are needed. No misspelled words or the English professor might send you to the back door.
