Life’s Little Ironies

… working in an office filled with people nattering on about the stock market (updates from the US markets every 5 minutes, direct from a website someone’s watching like a hawk), what their funds are doing, and how the whole world is slowly tipping into oblivion…

Luckily I get to listen to my IPod with its steady stream of Starship, Bruce Springsteen, and songs that were popular during the Crash of the late ’80s. And then the Pet Shop Boys show up with, “I Love You (You Pay My Rent)“. So close to all the conversation I was hearing behind me. Who knew Ipods on shuffle have a sense of wicked timing?

Hopefully soon I will have light to take a quick photo of the Amazonian sock, now with added toe.

    My I-tunes often has a wicked sense of timing. When trying to track down somebody from high school, was flooded by high school songs. The synchronous moments are good, but can occasionally be a bit much.

    It still amuses the hell out of me.
