IPOD Sensitivity

Both my boys are in bed fast asleep and there's a mountain of laundry in my bedroom calling my name, so I ran straight over to hide behind my computer until it shuts the heck up.

Instead I'm going to write about a very real problem I'm dealing with.

Over the weekend I went and got myself an MP3 player.

That's not my problem.

I came straight home and loaded it up with the limited number of songs I have downloaded to my computer.

That's not my problem either.

My problem came when I was out with some friends and they asked to see it. I felt like I had been asked to strip off all my clothes and prance around the room in the buff. As their eyes passed over my song list I could feel the judgement oozing out of them. I silently prayed that they would notice all the classic rock I had on there (I hear that's very hip right now) and was already trying to come up with excuses for how that Miley song had wound up on there. When they handed it back without any smart comments I felt relief wash over me.

But I know that I can't take back what they saw and I know that our relationship will never be the same because of it.

Oh and if we could just keep that Miley thing between you and me that be awesome. Thanks.

Reading comments helps me avoid the laundry. Please don't make me do laundry!
