Hi, my name is Nona, and I’m tired of Christmas music.
Yeah, I said it. I’m tired of it.
I’ve been listening to Christmas music since November 1st.
One song I’m particularly tired of is “Baby its Cold Outside.”
I call it the “Date Rape Song” as the whole thing seems to be about her trying really hard to get out of his house, and him coming up with all kinds of reasons she can’t leave. At one point she even says, “Hey, whats in this drink?” So, he either unknowingly spiked her drink, or drugged it, and either way that’s not such a good thing.
My husband laughed at the reason I hated the song. I guess he doesn’t buy into my Date Rape theory.
Another song I’m tired of is that blasted Christmas Shoes song. I’m just happy they are not playing it every third song like they have in years past. Talk about one depressing bit of “Holiday Cheer.”
I guess I’m just not in the holiday spirit. Of course it has been “Christmas” in my store since August. I told a customer today I was ready for Easter. They acted shocked.
Yeah, I’m so tired of Christmas I want to skip ahead a couple of holidays.
Oh, and did I mention that its NOT cold outside. Not at all Temperature in the high 70s. I know that some cold and snow covered peoples would love that right about now, but I’m sitting here like, “Hey, Winter, where did ya go?”
I’m not dreaming of a “White Christmas” but one where I can wear a cozy sweater is preferable to one where I’m opening presents wearing my sequined flamingo tank top.
(Yes, I have a sequined flamingo tank top. Don’t judge me.)
