Scene:  5:30 AM, November 1st.  Sleepy David rolling out of bed, Kelly stirring.

David:  I bet…I BET…there will be Christmas music on the radio on the way to work this morning.

Kelly:  Silence.  Rolls over.  In a moaning, tired voice:  “HE SAID I WANT TO BUY THESE SHOES…”

In case this makes no sense to you, you should know that “The Christmas Shoes,” while it is a sweet, sad song with lovely sentiment, is The Most Overplayed Christmas Song in the History of Christian Radio.  Here is the video in case you don’t know it.  I don’t know HOW you don’t know it, but maybe you live in an area of the country where DJs exercise moderation.

One thought on “Overheard

  1. i recently sent an email to my siblings about our christmas present exchange plans and in honor of you titled it "sir i want to buy these shoes…" =) Thanks for getting that song in my head way before its time to start the music!
