I have a tradition of declaring Ra Pa Pa Pum day — the first day each year I hear that song — you know the one. Two years ago, it was at Starbuck's in November. Last year, it wasn't until December 21, in a commercial for some new movie. This year, it was tonight, background music on some show. I didn't even notice the song right away, but Kathy pointed it out (same as last year, actually). She heard it a few says ago and says it counts. Not likely, dear.
The worst part is that damn song sticks in my head (the way it's getting stuck in yours right now).
This year, Ra Pa Pa Pum day is November 20.
