Had a crazy day today…Don’t think I’ll be getting to the vlog this week. But I’ll leave you with a fun and famous monologue from the one and only Lucille Ball.

Lucy: (Early rehearsal)
“Hello friends. I’m your Vitameatavegamin girl. Are you tired, run-down, listless? Do you poop out at parties? Are you unpopular? The answer to all your problems is in this little bottle. Yes. Vitameatavegain. Vitameatavegamin contains vitamins, meat, vegtables and minerals. With Vitameatagegamin you can spoon your way to health. All you do is take a big tablesppon after every meal. It’s so tasty, too: it tastes like candy. So why don’t you join the thousand of happy, peppy people and buy a gret big bottle of Vitameatavegamin tomorrow? That’s Vitameatavegamin.

(Later rehearsal…after having a bit too much of Vitameatavegamin, which secretly has something drunk-inducing in it.) Told in only the way Lucy can:
Well, I’m your Vita-vega-vittival girl. Are you tired? Run-down? Listless? Do you pop out at parties? Are you unpoopular? Well, are you? The answer to all your problems is in this little ol’ bottle…Vitameatavegemin. That’s it. Vitameatavegemin contains vitamins, meat, meg-e-tables, and vinerals. So why don’t you join the thousands of happy , peppy people and get a great big bottle of Vita-veaty-vega-meany-minie-moe-amin. I’ll tell you what you have to do. You have to take a whole tablesppon after every meal. It’s so tasty, too: it’s just like candy. So everybody get a bottle of…this stuff.


About lauriebarkercopeland

I'm just like you, but totally unique. We have things in common, but we are all God's one-of-a-kind creatures. I enjoy finding The Funny in life when it gets messy. And we all know how life can get messy, right? Some of the things I love: God, family, friends, storytelling, community, nature, the arts, beauty, travel, fun and games, learning, the study of the personalities, teenagers, acting, writing and missions. More specifically: the mountains, the beach, breathing clean air, traveling to new places, experiences, deep conversations, appreciating the minute in nature, lunching with girlfriends, practicing sensing, predicting trends, taking a few risks along the way. I hate routine, so starting (and keeping up) this vlog is risky for me...but I love community (and a few risks), so I'm going for it! I hope you join me and we can have some Serious Fun together!

  1. LLL~Thanks for sharing. I love Lucy too! What a good reminder that LAUGHTER…
    is ‘good MEDICINE’.
    ( That Vitaveggameatmin stuff …not so much.) ~ LLL

  2. I loved that Lucy episode, In fact we just watched it on the internet after reading your post!. I agree, you would be a stitch doing it yourself!! i feel like that sometimes – like Lucy with too much vitavitamin. Just running around in a stupor… and no alcohol included!
