Halfway through the afternoon I parked the car in a somewhat empty lot, turned on the XM Broadway channel and attacked a still-warm-from-the oven Panera cookie (leftover from lunch). Within the cocoon of my car, I felt safe from all the insanity that is the holiday season.
First up on my showtunes station was Ethel Merman. I can't get enough of her. Whether it's Gypsy or Annie Get Your Gun, she slays me.
Next was a song from the original cast recording of Les Miserables.
Then Goodbye Love, one of my favorite songs from Rent.
Then... well, then I felt calm enough to continue with my errands and made my way over to Canadian Tire to stand on yet another line.
'Tis the season?
