O’ Parking Space

I have had the same parking space at work three days in a row. I’m kind of scared. This has never happened to me before. I don’t get it, either, unless someone was parked in that space (the spot at the end of a row) and left each day this week just before I got there. Why would anyone choose to park in the 2nd spot in when they can guarantee that at least one side of their car will be ding-free by parking at the end?

Unless….it’s a Christmas miracle!

[Note: I went to the web to get a copy of the lyrics to O Christmas Tree so that I could write my own take on it. Did you know that there are at least 5 billion different versions of the lyrics to this song? On a fairly scholarly site that covers this song in depth, I chose a cross between several version. #13 has a familiar first part (“How lovely are your branches”) but the rest not so much. I guess making up my own version won’t be too different from what everyone else does. ]

O Parking Spot, O Parking Spot
How much I love convenience
O Parking Spot, O Parking Spot
How much I love convenience
I got here late, no traffic flowed
I need a spot in this zip code
O Parking Spot, O Parking Spot
How much I love convenience

O Parking Spot, O Parking Spot
Why are you waiting for me?
O Parking Spot, O Parking Spot
Why are you waiting for me?
Why do others fear to tread?
Is there broken glass, or skunk that’s dead?
O Parking Spot, O Parking Spot
Why are you waiting for me?

O Parking Spot, O Parking Spot
Three days we’ve been together
O Parking Spot, O Parking Spot
Three days we’ve been together
Three mornings now, I’ve called you home
So now I feel this spot I own
O Parking Spot, O Parking Spot
Three days we’ve been together

    I like your song – it brightened my day as only something like excellent parking or an all-year-green tree can.
