Chronicles of Jules #SecretSubjectSwap

Welcome to a Secret Subject Swap. This week ten awesome bloggers picked a secret subject for someone else and were assigned a secret subject to interpret in their own style. Today we are all simultaneously divulging our topics and submitting our posts.

My “Secret Subject” is:
If a TV sitcom were made about your life, what would the theme song sound like? what would the lyrics be? What images would be included in the opening montage?

So, listen, Jenniy of Climaxed always gives amazing subjects. They always make me think and make my mind go on happy journeys. However, every time I am assigned one of her subjects, I never feel like I do it justice, and this time is no exception. This is an amazing question, and I love it! However, I honestly have no clue. I know someone else could come up with lyrics, probably music, and pictures/videos for the montage. I just sit and stare at the screen for hours at a time. This is my third, and finally time, I have sat down to write my post. It is due tomorrow, so I have to come up with an answer. So, to my fellow bloggers, who can do this so much more justice than I.... This is an amazing blog post topic. Please, create a post for your blog in the future, and tag me, so I can enjoy it.

Now, I will tell you right now... A TV show about my life would be pretty darn boring. Thankfully, it is a sitcom and not a follow me around reality show. So, I am hoping I would be able to ad lib a bit, and make it much more interesting. I would also add in events from my past, from the years before my life became extremely boring. I am not complaining. I love my life. I am grateful for it. I have been blessed with some amazing friends and family. 

So, I am guessing that if there were a sitcom about my life, it would be named something like.... The Berghams or Bergham Chronicles or Jules of Denial. LOL I don't know. I would hope it would have some awesome title. The theme song would have to be about the subject matter, which would be me. I have no clue what the music would sound like. All I can think of is the Golden Girls theme, and all Chad can think of is "Bad Boys" from COPS. 

When life gets you down, and you just want to frown,
Call Jules.
Call her!
When things are hard, and you feel like giving up,
Call Jules.
Call her!
When you are bored, and you have nothing to do,
Call Jules.
Call her!

Nope. I don't like it. Though, that is what I hope I am remembered for.... Being a good friend. Someone people can always depend on.

She is an enigma. A person who is a puzzle.
She is your friend. She is Jules.
She is confusing. A walking, talking contradiction.
She is your friend. She is Jules.
She is someone on who you can always depend.
She is your friend. She is Jules.
She is here for you. She will have your back.
She is your friend. She is Jules.
She loves wholeheartedly. She loves unconditionally.
She is your friend. She is Jules.

Nope. I still do not like it. I obviously have no career at being a jingle writer. 

She is always honest, and always real.
She will always have your back.
She will never judge or ridicule.
She will always be there for you.
She will always be kind and show empathy.
She is an original. She is Jules.

Ugh. They keep getting worse and worse.

My dad could do this. He could write the lyrics and set them to music. I wish he were here, and I could have asked for his help.

Hazel eyes shining, lips always smiling.
A friend real and true.
Always there for you.
Never turning her back to you.
Never judging you.
Always being there for you.
Always ready to help. 
Yes, she is genuine.
Never to be underestimated.
She is Jules.

Yes, worse and worse.

She is a mother and a friend.
One on who people can depend.
She is true and real.
One who gives love you can feel.
She is Julesssss.

I quit. I honestly have no idea what the lyrics would be. Something about friendship and honesty. Something about being a mom? I really do not know. When I think about myself, I think about my loyalty and being a mom. I think about how I live my life being honest. I live for being a mom, a friend, and a volunteer. I would probably use the sitcom to bring attention to things I care about. People paying forward blessings, being kind, acceptance for all people, equality for all people, improvement to the Foster Care system, an end to hunger in our country, and my kiddo being loved. I would try to promote ending bullying. I would try to promote improving things in our country. I would have an inclusive cast. I just cannot think of what the theme song lyrics would be. Something about me.

The montage would include pictures and clips of me with my friends and family. It would include videos of me volunteering with my family. I would want to include pics of Gigi as a baby and current. For the baby pic, I think the one of her biting my nose and of her biting my finger. 

Also, for the sake of the sitcom, I would need to get Gigi involved more in our community, so we could entertain folks more. She will be the start of the show, even though it is about my life. Well, really, Gigi and Chad are my life, so it is fitting that she be the star. She will for sure steal the spotlight. She would really make it a must watch TV show. Phew. The pressure is off of me.

I am open to suggestions for my theme song. I would love to have a theme song. I obviously need to work on this more. It will probably take me months or years, but I will come up with something. For sure, my "house" will need to be made so much bigger for the sake of the show. My real house is way too tiny to film in. So, the show could not be completely real to life. I would hope the theme song would be genuine though. I bet Gigi would come up with a great theme song. 

Can I just request that it be a Reggae song? Is that possible?! I think that would be awesome. It would need to be Reggae or Country, if it were going to be a reflection of me. Fingers crossed for Reggae. 

Here are links to all the sites now featuring Secret Subject Swap posts.  Sit back, grab a drink, and check them all out. See you there:



  1. Love the idea of a reggae song. Maybe you need to combine all of your attempts into one, that could do it.

  2. Between your imagination and your creative abilities -- you nailed it

  3. All of those nailed it Love what you did with the prompt and yes, you did it justice

  4. Jenniy always gives great subjects! You did a great hob that would have been hard.

  5. GREAT job!!!!! I would definitely watch a sitcom about your life, though!!!! :)

  6. I don't think it was so much a prompt about writing something catchy as it was being self aware and being able to pin down the most important things about yourself in a few words, and in that way, you definitely nailed it.

  7. Thanks for sharing excellent informations. Your web site is so cool.
    I am impressed by the details that you've on this blog.

    It reveals how nicely you understand this subject.

    Bookmarked this website page, will come back for extra articles.

    You, my pal, ROCK! I found simply the information I already searched all over the place and just couldn't come across.
    What an ideal site.

  8. I like the efforts you have put in this, regards for all the great posts.

  9. My spouse and I absolutely love your blog and find most of your post's to be exactly I'm looking for.
    can you offer guest writers to write content to suit your needs?
    I wouldn't mind creating a post or elaborating on a lot of the subjects you write concerning here.
    Again, awesome site!

  10. It's an innocent little prologue to the
    madness which will soon unfold on the silver television screen. A Liberace
    joke up to a "strange hand sticking the hole" is priceless, even though.

  11. You are my breathing in, I have few web logs and very
    sporadically run out from brand :).

  12. Hey terrific blog! Does running a blog like this require a large amount of work?
    I've virtually no knowledge of coding however I was hoping to start my own blog in the
    near future. Anyway, should you have any suggestions or
    tips for new blog owners please share. I know this is off subject but I simply had to ask.
    Thanks a lot!
