I have a CD player in my car.
It is old but it works pretty well other than when you play a burnt CD. Then it has trouble.
If you want to navigate to the next song you gotta be willing to wait a couple of minutes for it to get there. And if you go over a bump the same thing happens'; you have to wait a few minutes for it to find its place again.
I am talking sometimes five, ten minutes.
So yesterday I was listening to a Jack Johnson CD I burnt way back when I first starting listening to him. And I was driving on the highway and I hit a bump that made it stop for a good five minutes or so. I don't know how long it was but it was a long time because I couldn't remember what song was playing when it stopped.
So I did a thing I often do when I get impatient. I said to myself, "self, I want to shut it off and listen tot he radio now, but I will wait a generous ten seconds and if it doesn't start within ten seconds I am shutting it off..."
"so girl don't let your dreams be dreams...you know this livin's not so hard as it seems...don't let your dreams be dreams..."
That is the end of my story.
PS: Please ignore the first half of the song if you're listening to it; that is not the point of my story!
