The episode of the Young and the Restless that aired on May 11, 2018 broke down in family / company / business relationships in complicated ways that I tried to show on the image below.
The issue dominating the episode was: mistakes in early parenting, such as sleeping around and not knowing who a child’s father is, might get very messy when you have Alzheimer’s, maybe even want to cone clean with the truth- as the upstanding Madame Dina Mergeron wants to do, yet after decades might not remember even if mentally stable.
The song refers to the title of the episode I gave the show based on a character who floats this issue. The character sounds the 100% role reversal of the lover in Diana Ross’ LOVE CHILD, where a child is cared for only from love versus biologically designed planning.
Thus we can guess there is going to be activity at the G.C.M.H. lab next week.
The phrase “my favorite mistake” in American English simply means- “I failed in an endeavor. However, by failing I was freed up and a much better situation presented itself. ”
Sheryl Crow’s My Favorite Mistake is a brilliant lyric on its own. It reads as well as a poem as a song. Good fun drama.
The song is fantastic, as the bass line sounds like classic Rolling Stones or Tho Who or The Pretenders. That said, the lyric in the song,
Young and the Restless has gotten crisp and brilliant. The writing has improved so much over the past 12 years I stand and applaud adjusting to social situations of extreme sensitivity with equanimity.
“Don’t you know when you go
It’s the perfect ending,
To the bad day,
I’d gotten used to spending.
Don’t you know,
When you go you’re my favorite mistake.”
That high level of sardonic conversation was reflected perfectly as character Jack Abbott and Nikki Newman on season 46, episode 74.
I this episode, the issues of dementia, telecommuting and marrying a divorced woman with children when as a partner you have no experience with children.
Who has been the character who over the years has claimed and let things grow instead of forcing issues with anxiety?
In my humble opinion: Sharon Collins! Sharon Collins is an example of television portraying mentally “ill” woman, showing that staying on medical protocol and keeping expectations reasonable and staying kind to others DOES WODERS (!)
