So I experienced my first dash of holiday embarassment today. It was inevitable, really, as involved as I get in festive fun each year. Its usually just a matter of time.
I was driving to work this morning and enjoying the all-Christmas station on the radio. Nothing new there.
Then one of the more upbeat, fun songs came on (All I Want for Christmas Is You by Mariah Carey.) I was singing along absently until I pulled into the parking garage, when I realized my favorite part was coming up. So, as I drove around the corner onto the first ramp, I belted out at the top of my lungs (accompanied by exuberant head-bobbing action) "Baaaaaaaaaaaaby!"
It was AFTER that I realized a man stood on the ramp, waiting to cross to the elevators, and witnessed my Holiday Moment in all its glory. His expression was priceless, my embarassment complete.
I think he's still laughing.
Maybe these Grinch types who hate Christmas music have the right idea!!! =)
