I am sitting in bed writing at the moment. I write listening to music with my earphones in. I’m talking the ear buds, not the $200 customized dj headphones (I wouldn’t be caught dead in them anyway; I never wear ear muffs either). I must have unusually small ears because ear buds are never comfortable. If I’m wearing the earphones while I’m cleaning which I always do (it keeps my mind off it) they are constantly falling out. I am forever readjusting, fiddling or putting them back in.
Then there is the fact that they get caught on everything while I’m walking around the house. The cord gets caught on the dishwasher rack mostly. Sometimes I don’t realize I’m wearing them and do something stupid like change my shirt. Let me tell you it’s a drag trying to untangle earphones out of the sleeves of your shirt.
Just the general sudden hand movements that drag the earphones quickly and violently from one’s ear. That just plain hurts and kind of pisses me off because I am usually concentrating on some important thought and that messes up my flow.
Have you ever been zapped by static while wearing earphones? Boy, that’s no fun. I suffer enough brain zapps before my medicine kicks in the morning thank you very much.
