Merry Christmas 2006!

Let me tell you a story about how one should never jump to conclusions regarding the potential of a silly christmas song which begins by telling your cat "merry christmas."

Once upon a time on Friday night, Michael asked Becca to hear a song he'd written for Chrstimas. Becca had been present for the original formation of the song as michael played with a new-loved chord progression, and now looked curiously forward to hearing what had become of it. So Becca, unassumingly, took a seat in front of the computer where Michael had loaded a recording of the completed song. The song progressed much the same as it had when she'd first heard bits of it, with just a few words moved and pauses shifted. Then suddenly, as the second verse began to play, Becca's life began to change and she didnt even know it. for ease of explaination, the song:
(i may have messed up the words little....i left my napkin copy at home)

Merry, Merry Christmas
Merry December 25th
(even to the cat)

1.I have a girlfriend
who i dont like
just to be my girlfriend

2.i went to see my pastor
who is my girlfriend's father
and he said "ok"

At the conclusion of this new second verse, Becca exclaimed "is this a true story!?" to which the answer became "yes."
Hugs and kisses and a couple of gold rings later...It became known that Michael and Becca are to be married in July of 2007.
