this may come as a shock to some (especially those of you who despise christmas music), but this is the time of year (some would say the most wonderful time of the year, in fact) when my car radio is tuned to 94.9 WHOM, your radio home for the holidays. this is probably one of the worst radio stations in the world, not to put too fine a point on it, but i have a sick addiction to it nonetheless.
today, i heard mary's boychild, which always puts me in mind of
1) my friend mama d, the only other person i know who will confess to the same habit, and
2) the fact that i should immediately start referring to boo as my "boychild."
p.s. when i'm at home, i mostly have really excellent taste in music. for real.
