Aural Arguments

I listen to an MP-3 player on the way to and from work. I set the player on “random”, so it’s always a surprise which of my 2900+ songs (or comedy bits) turns up. Although I try to keep the volume down so to not damage my hearing any more than it already is, every once in a while, in a place like a quiet elevator, someone can hear what I’m listening to. And it always something I’d rather people not know I’m listening to. Like the other day “Dancing Queen” was playing and a lady in the elevator says, “Oh, I love that song.”

I’m like, “Oh, I don’t know why that’s on there… And I can’t really even hear it because my ears are still ringing after the Metallica that was just on.”
