Pa Rum-Pum Pum Pum

It's the first of November.

I sit down on the train, next to a woman doing a crossword puzzle, but not the same one I will be doing after I've finished reading the hard news. I think to myself "crosswords unite" and settle in.

Muffled deep in her bag, her cell phone rings - but not the usual default ringtone. No, it's...and she pulls it out of her bag, thus unmuffling it, her cell ring tone is “Little Drummer Boy”.

I have lost the “Little Drummer Boy” challenge before it’s begun.

I did, however, lean over to her and tell her that her ring tone had made my day.

Because honestly? I love me some Christmas music - even if it is only November 1st.

I didn't even know that was a thing, so thanks, although I kind of feel like I'm out now because I'm going to hear it in my head for AT LEAST the next twelve hours. This also reminds me that at the Halloween party when we finally sat down and started playing Youtube videos of mostly-dead musicians (as we inevitably do if it gets late enough), someone played the parody of Bing Crosby and David Bowie done by Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly, except it wasn't really a parody because it was really lovely and done really well, so I was confused but charmed.
