I love my headphones, I will wear them at any opportunity I can. It's not just that they prevent everyone having to endure my varied selection of music but I just find them comfortable. I've even caught myself still wearing them after turning my music off.
Being in between my headphones is my happy place, it's the place I may go if I feel a bit anxious or stressed. It's the place I go if I'm sad as I'll try and cheer myself up with my favourite tunes and then the world is ok. I listen to my itunes, the radio, my Rock Choir downloads, an audio book and I even prefer to watch a telly catch up on a device through my bins (headphones). Yes it sounds daft but I will watch my box sets or any telly stuff on my phone or iPad rather than watch it through the tv.
My headphones give me that private time, that serene paradise where no one else can enter. The kids have even got their own visual prompt to make me take them off to speak to me, I know teenagers wanting to speak and not grunt!!! I do talk to them.....a lot. I'm not under my headphones ALL the time honest. Great though when you don't want to 'people'.
I have to wear the headphones which go over my head, I just can't get to grips with 'in the ear' ones. I know you are not supposed to shove them right in your ears but mine just don't stay in. I'm beginning to think I have a different shaped inner ear to everyone else. They perch on the edge like a slightly scared child sitting on the edge of swimming pool for the first time when they are just about to make that plunge and plop into the pool. My ear phones are the same, they move slower and slower and out they fall, I'm sure they even rejoice at the fact they are free and doggy paddling to freedom.
I'm probably doing it all wrong. I'm waiting for someone to say 'no you don't put them in like that' and show me the way to go. It's funny because I never wore tampons either, there's a pattern here but lets not go there.
Can you imagine me having those Apple Ear Buds, the ones that are wire free? It's the wire I depend on for not losing the ear bits. I'd be forever picking those wireless ones off the floor. You would see me ferreting under someones shopping bag on the bus while Rag n' Bone Man belts out that we're only Human, well yes mate we are but I don't have human ears.
I'm comfy in my old faithfuls and I'm comfy taking time out in my happy place, everyone should find their happy place. Be peaceful and content in whatever you feel right.. Go on pop ya bins on and shut yourself away from the world for a while.......it's so lovely.
Thank you for reading today, please come back tomorrow for Teapot Tuesday but for now take care.
Today is about anything to do with my love of music.
