MP3 malfunction

A good personal soundtrack can make the difference between a relaxing commute and one that has you wanting to curse humanity. The only problem: sometimes headphones become detached from the playing device, making your personal soundtrack more of a shared experience.

This happened to me once while enjoying "The Very Best of Prince and the Revolution." (If "I Wanna Be Your Lover" doesn't wake you up in the morning, you have no pulse, which is something you might want to get checked out.) Everyone around me if getting my funk on in the Bethesda Metro station was somehow wrong.

Yesterday I saw this happen in Northern Virginia. Now, many words can be used to describe the Fairfax Connector; however "headbanger" and "ball" are not usually two of them. Nevertheless, streaming from the MP3 player of a polo-shirted computer guy more likely to be coding PERL than shagging groupies: "Shook Me All Night Long."

Rock on, Fairfax. Rock on.
