Daily Ditty #46 - Laurie Laidlaw

Happy Birthday, Laurie - more a poem than a ditty. Anyone want to write music to it?


From the moment we saw you

Our freshman fall

We knew you were special,

You could do it all.

Monogrammed book bag and highlighters -

A Sanborn House regular.

In your cheerleading skirt

You sure were leg-ular.

Smart as a whip (a summa cum laude)

Dartmouth’s Grace Kelly

Turning men to jelly while profs did applaud her.

Then U Mich and BP,

From COO to VP.

Most impressive of all,

Class of ’79 Presidency.

Sorry this ditty is one day late –

Happy Belated Birthday, Laurie – hope it was great!
