Cancel Everything

Earbuds–regardless of their style or size–have always hurt my ears when I wear them. That’s why I bought a pair of over-the-ear noise-cancelling headphones to have with me on the plane when I was flying out to Denver back in May.

I love them so much.

But I’ve noticed lately that sometimes I put them on and then forget to use them with my iPod or computer. And so I then feel kind of feeble-minded when I realize half an hour or forty-five minutes later that I’ve been walking around with them still on my head, piping nothing into my auditory channels.

So what?
