One of my bosses likes to play music while he’s working and I have no problem with that. Our “tastes” in music are close enough and frankly, I’m a Mom so I can focus through just about any background noise (which his music generally is not).  Except one day, he took a shine to Taylor Swift. For the whole day. And after several hours, the sound of her high-pitched voice became too much. I would rather grate my fingers to nubs with a cheese grater than ever. repeat. that loooong afternoon.

Since then, I have sometimes joked using the line “at least it’s not Taylor Swift”.

Subject Line: Gak – How today’s email conversation went with Hubby

9:54 a.m.

Me: “[boss’ name]  is playing Taylor Swift. If it goes on all morning, I cannot be held responsible for my actions!”

10:04 a.m.

Hubby:  “I Knew You Were Trouble.” I’m “Safe & Sound” here. “Shake it Off” and don’t let the “Bad Blood” build between you. Don’t get “Breathless;” remember to “Breathe.” If he stops playing it, then you’ll be “The Lucky One,” you’ll be “Out of the Woods” and then “Everything Has Changed.” Keep a “State of Grace” between you and [Boss’ name] and be the “SuperStar.” “Tell Me Why” it bothers you. But remember to tell {Boss’ name] that if he keeps playing her stuff, then “We are Never Ever Getting Back Together.”

Love ya, honey. And remember, “Two is Better Than One.”

11:35 a.m. – I forwarded Hubby’s response to my boss…

11:36 a.m. – Boss: “That’s the best thing I’ve seen all day. At least it’s covers!”

11:38 a.m. – I let Hubby know Boss’ response.

11:42 a.m.

Hubby: “Any time <break into song> YOU’RE FEELING LONELY. ANY TIME YOU’RE FEELING BLUE, ANY TIME YOU FEEL DOWN HEARTED, THAT WILL PROVE YOUR LOVE FOR ME IS TRUE.” GIYF

Consequently, I have been singing this ALL DAY:

Happy Weekend!
