Somebody please help me.

No, I’m seriously asking for help. Professional help.

I need this help in a serious and panicked sort of way, and I’ve found nothing online to help me with this particular problem.

For the last six months or so, I’ve been suffering from a severe case of Ba Du Ba Ba Baaaaaa Syndrome.

If I can’t overcome this, I’ll likely lose all my friends, and I’ll probably fail in every future relationship. I’ll make enemies. I’ll embarrass myself in the professional world. And worst of all, almost guaranteed I’ll pass it down to my son.

It’s highly contagious. Even reading today’s blog might be enough to inflict and infect you with it. I pray to God that’s not the case. If it is, I’m more sorry than you’ll ever know.

What? You’ve never heard of Ba Du Ba Ba Baaaaaa Syndrome? Let me explain it to you.

Ba Du Ba Ba Baaaaaa Syndrome is when you’re sitting in a romantic moment with your significant other and you suddenly sing the McDonald’s theme song. Ba Du Ba Ba Baaaaaa, I’m lovin’ it! 


It’s when you’re snuggling with your sleeping son and he suddenly awakes from his nap because you couldn’t help but sing Ba Du Ba Ba Baaaaaa, I’m lovin’ it!


It’s when you’re getting your yearly physical at the doctor’s office, you turn your head to cough and, Ba Du Ba Ba Baaaaaa, I’m lovin’ it!


It’s when you’re eating a homemade dinner that’s just so dang good, and the words just slip out. Ba Du Ba Ba Baaaaaa, I’m lovin’ it!


It’s when you’re trying on new clothes. Ba Du Ba Ba Baaaaaa, I’m lovin’ it!


It’s when you’re taking out the garbage. Ba Du Ba Ba Baaaaaa, I’m lovin’ it!


It’s when you’re cleaning up dog crap. Ba Du Ba Ba Baaaaaa, I’m lovin’ it!


It’s when you almost rear end somebody because you weren’t paying attention. Ba Du Ba Ba Baaaaaa, I’m lovin’ it!


It’s when a cop knocks on your window and asks you if you know how fast you were going. Ba Du Ba Ba Baaaaaa, I’m lovin’ it!


It’s when your waiter brings you the wrong platter. Ba Du Ba Ba Baaaaaa, I’m lovin’ it!


It’s when you wake up and you just had the best dream ever. Ba Du Ba Ba Baaaaaa, I’m lovin’ it!


It’s at every perfect moment and every inopportune moment. There’s no rhyme or reason to it. And sometimes it’s really embarrassing.

So please. Does anybody have a cure for this? I literally cannot stop singing the McDonald’s jingle. Tweni suggested I go to you for help with this because nothing I’ve tried so far has worked. If anything, with every attempt it’s getting worse. I’ve even started texting it and leaving it on other people’s voicemail.

PS. Do you ever get annoying little tunes or jingles stuck in your head? Which ones? Have you ever had one last this long? Anybody else ever have the McDonald’s jingle? Is there any hope for me?
