Roberto Cavalli’s Favorite Things

Inspired by the Harper’s Bazaar article “My List: Roberto Cavalli in 24 Hours.”

Bedtime wearing only ten drops of my own Cavalli scent
Waking up surrounded by the dogs, cats, and birds I charge rent
Leaving my monkey at the local Ikea since he “was mean”
These are a few of my favorite things

Deciding which of my “panties,” 50 same pairs of jeans, and 40 same pairs of boots to wear
Heading to the office — should I take the boat, helicopter, Ferrari, or electric car there?
Retired my Segway for now, but maybe I’ll bring it out in the spring
These are a few of my favorite things

Signing lots of papers — “an important man should do that every day”
Going home to my wife’s crystal ball collection; she keeps all 50 on display
Then, it’s tweet and to bed — “private because there are a lot of fantasies”
These are a few of my favorite things

When the monkey bites
When Anna Wintour stings
When I’m feeling sad
I simply remember my favorite things
And then I don’t feel so bad
