You May Hate Me, but I'll Remember to Love You

Mom's Christmas Present

I hate it when I get a song stuck in my head.

Usually, I don't know why the song is even in my head. I'll be singing "Jingle Bells" in March and have no clue what started it.

The song in my head today wasn't a complete mystery. I had listened to the song last night. But I heard it as I was concentrating on something else. I only heard it once and it's not like it was the last song I heard last night.

I woke up and listened to music like I usually do. And on the way to work, same thing.

But for some reason, the song from last night was stuck in my head. I'd catch myself humming the tune to myself now and then. Even while talking to customers, I could hear Rachel Yamagata singing the song over and over.

Is it ironic, then, that the song that filled my head and wouldn't die down is titled "Quiet?"
