A dash of holiday embarassment...

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!!! =)

I love pulling up to a stop-light and noticing the guy in the car next to me is singing along to the radio...even better if he's listening to the same station I am and singing the same song. :)

Merry Christmas, Betsy, to you and yours. And keep singing at the top of your lungs.

LOL! Oh my goodness, too bad you didn't have a camera to capture the look on his face...I thought you were going to say you were belting it out, the man was there, and you realized your window was down or something and he totally heard you.

HAHAHA Your story just made my day, and I bet your singing made that guy's day. I know EXACTLY what part of the song you're talking about and I bet you belted it.... oh wow Betsy... that's great.

And cute picture to go with it. :]
