HEY DING DONG! (I think you’ll like this acronym for DING DONG, inspired by Kathy, one of my Inner Kiddy subscribers.)
Do It Now Girl/ Don’t Over Neglect Girl
Have you ever thought that when we procrastinate we are really over neglecting? As pros at procrastination we could say we are master neglectors. I can’t think the words DING DONG without thinking next about the Wicked Witch of the West which automatically calls up that memorial tune sung by the Munchkins.
So my little Munchkins, what if we thought of that old wicked witch as something looming over us that we have to do and we keep putting it off and it gets bigger and bigger and wickeder and wickeder? When we DING DONG the witch is dead! She’s done, gone and we’re free!
If you have something looming right now, sing along with the lyrics below and get the feeling of having that looming task done, then DING DONG.
Ding Dong! The Witch is dead. Which old Witch? The Wicked Witch!
Ding Dong! The Wicked Witch is dead.
Wake up - sleepy head, rub your eyes, get out of bed.
Wake up, the Wicked Witch is dead. She's gone where the goblins go,
Below - below - below. Yo-ho, let's open up and sing and ring the bells out.
Ding Dong' the merry-oh, sing it high, sing it low.
Let them know
The Wicked Witch is dead!
As Mayor of the Munchkin City, In the County of the Land of Oz, I welcome you
But we've got to verify it legally, to see
Is morally, ethic'lly
Father No. 2
Undeniably and reliably Dead
As Coroner I must aver, I thoroughly examined her.
And she's not only merely dead, she's really most sincerely dead.
Then this is a day of Independence
For all the Munchkins and their
Yes, let the joyous news be spread
The wicked Old Witch at last is dead!
Now go tackle that wicked old witch and you’ll be able to declare her morally, ethically, spiritually, physically, positively, undeniable, reliably and most sincerely dead!
