Pear necessities, the simple bare necessities-Its amazing what a gingery mint and gin cocktail with fresh pear and Pimm’s #1 can do for your morale.
In tough times like these what we consider to be the essentials for our happiness and well being is often is subject to change. Where once Miss Flighty couldn’t live without that cute red dress from Etsy or simply had to check out that new whiskey bar everyone’s talking about, she learned an important lesson from an animated character of Jungle Book fame–the jolly dancing bear Baloo.
For Baloo the important thing is the simple stuff in life, dancing all jolly and mad-cap style with friends, tasty foods, and I’ll wager a refreshing drink. Now its true there aren’t really pears in the jungle, but if we think consider the story as originally told by British author Rudyard Kipling, I bet he wouldn’t have to go too far for a nice tasting gin and a bottle of Pimm’s #1. Baloo-the dancing bear from the Jungle Book whose jolly attitude and mad-cap dancing that priorities change, thngs like family and friends are more important, you begin to appreciate just a walk around the neighborhood and …..if you follow Miss Flighty’s advice, a fresh pear drink, with Pimm’s #1, ginger and gin, made at home and enjoyed with friends.
Its the simple Pear Necessities…
Disney’s Jungle Book, the Bear Necessities (excerpts)
Look for the bare necessities
The simple bare necessities
Forget about your worries and your strife
I mean the bare necessities
Old Mother Nature’s recipes
That brings the bare necessities of life
So just try and relax, yeah cool it
And don’t spend your time lookin’ around
For something you want that can’t be found
When you find out you can live without it
And go along not thinkin’ about it I’ll tell you something true
The bare necessities of life will come to you
