I like to walk. When I do, I enjoy listening to music via my iPhone. I use the free streaming service AccuRadio which offers a wide range of music and a reasonable amount of advertising. A great balance.

I use the wired earbuds that came with my iPhone. I know the trend is to purchase wireless buds, but given the expense, and the fact I have no doubt I would lose at least one of them within days – hours? – I’ll stick with the freebies, thank you.
One of the things that never ceases to amaze me is how I can painstakingly gently coil the wire of my earbuds, slowly slip them into my pocket, or place them on a table only to find when I want to use them that the wire has become severely tangled. It’s diabolical. No matter how carefully I wrap the wires, at some point forces known only to wired earbuds take over and jumble the whole thing into a mass of knots that a dreadlock-sporting Rastafarian would envy.
I have even wondered if what I am experiencing is some sort of wired earbud poltergeist. Instead of pieces of furniture flying around my living room, or unexplained sounds, my poltergeist sets to driving me mad by enmeshing wires that I have carefully put away.

If I could get back the time I’ve spent trying to disentangle the wires of earbuds I might just be able to make more of a contribution to society. But I feel that what is holding me back from being a truly remarkable person is all this time I waste unsnarling these stupid wires.
