Spoke Too Soon

Scene: A popular family dining establishment which the POC household likes to frequent. They are on a mission to purchase new trays for their self-scooping litter box and have taken an opportunity to have lunch before completing their errand.

"Jingle Bell Rock" begins playing over the speakers. Jeff takes another bite of his burger. Mrs. Jeff has another sip of soup.

After another moment, Jeff fully notices the music playing.

Jeff: Huh.

Mrs. Jeff: Hm?

Jeff: This song is pretty corny.

Mrs. Jeff: (stops to listen for a moment) Yeah, it is.

Jeff: Hey...but at least they're not playing "Feliz Navidad." I haven't heard that [deleted] song once so far this season.

Mrs. Jeff: You shouldn't have said that! You just jinxed yourself!

Jeff: Oh. I might have.

"Jingle Bell Rock" ends. The very next song is...come on, guess. But it's not the guy singing through his's Celine Dion, which Jeff considers to be even worse.

Jeff: [Deleted]

Mrs. Jeff: Told you.

Ha ha ha!!! She was so definitely spoke too soon.

I didn't know Celine Dion did a version of that song.....I agree, she is much much worse.

I hope at least that the shopping trip was successful! ;)

I'm hearing one on a local soft rock station doing all Christmas all the time that is like fingernails on a chalkboard -- can't remember which tune it is, but the drum beat is so synthesized, so hokey, so repetitious, so crappy -- and this tune is in the hourly playlist, I think.

Check the You Tube link below. This Rob dude feels your pain about "Feliz Navidad," but in a non-Christmassy way ... although there has to be a Christmas ditty set to Pachelbel somewhere. Dang, if I could find it, maybe we should do it as we light candles on Christmas Eve, huh?

or search for "Pachelbel Rant"

That's great.
And top of that, it really cracks me up that you are referring to your wife as "Mrs. Jeff".
