As a mass-transit commuter, I miss having my car stereo; the morning DJ banter, Top 40 hits, blasting the awesome dance songs and yes, even stupid local commercials. I am relegated to the iPod generation, listening to whatever pops up on the shuffle through really shitty ear buds, like the rest of the mass-transit commuters, unable to sing along at the top of our lungs. Currently I am listening to the shuffle because I like the random, eclectic awesomeness that is my shuffle list.
This morning I had the most fortunate experience during the last three blocks to work and standing in line at Starbucks. I distinctly noted the following songs in order with which they played: Me & Bobby McGee (Janis), Black Betty (Ram Jam) and What's Love Got to Do With It (Tina Turner), this caused spontaneous singing and dance-walking all the way from the bus to the office. See, I have a theory that I can make a fool out of myself in front of strangers and passersby because they'll probably never see me again. However, I usually try to maintain composure in front of friends, family and co-workers, this doesn't always happen, but at least I try.
I finally stopped singing and dance-walking (please tell me everybody knows what this is) when I reached the elevator, because that's just a little too close for comfort to be making a fool out of myself with people who see me Monday thru Friday.
