I live about 6 blocks or so from where I work. Naturally I walk the distance. Why wouldn’t I, it’s SIX BLOCKS, that’s NOTHING! Besides, driving would be ridiculous… not to mention the complete lack of parking at work and the fact that my car is ALREADY 1 block away.
Anyways. During my walk, I pass all sorts of people… some normal, some crazy, some a little in between. Without fail, 5 or 6 of them will be listening to music on an iPod. And since I do the exact same (iPod shuffle), there’s always some sort of glance or nod exchanged. Like we’re part of some special club with a secret handshake and everything. I just wonder if there’s a headquarters or something… maybe a secret fort? You know, the one with the sign that says “NO GIRLS ALLOWED”. Except in our fort it says, “No iPod, No Admittance”.
