My job as Electrical Gadget Handler has a great range of duties, both defined and undefined. Today, one of those duties had me driving to Ikea to pick up some new shelves for the office. As I stood in line at the checkout, a woman and a little girl stood behind behind me with efficiently-packed cardboard boxes on their flatbed cart. The little girl seemed pleasantly agreeable and uncharacteristically patient, singing a little song to herself. The tune was familiar, but it wasn't until I paid close attention to the words the girl was singing that I realized why she was so joyful. The tune was the first few bars of O Tannebaum. Here's the words she was singing:

I lo-ove them, I lo-ove them,
I'm ge-tting a new bunk-bed.
