This is my MP 3 player and recorder, which I love! It’s great for recording language lessons,
but even better for making road trips go faster.
Relient K. Some of their stuff is deep,
a lot of it is just fun. Great car music!
And then, it happened. I pushed a button. Now, none of
these buttons are normal buttons. No,
these are special under 25 mystery buttons, with labels like A/B, M and various
squiggles. As I am over 25, I am completely unable to operate them.
Well, whatever I pushed got me stuck in one very light, very
fun 80s inspired album. Nice to listen
to once or even twice in a row, but the third time was a little much, and the
fourth time was unbearable. I couldn’t
fast forward, advance, skip, or do anything to get out of this one CD and onto
the other stuff that was on there. There
I was, on the side of the road, desperately pushing and holding buttons in
different sequences, nothing. Just “Charles in charge of our days, and our
nights…” over and over again.
When I got to where I was stopping for the night, I deleted
everything from the player, took the battery out, left it like that for a
couple of hours, and then put more music on, hoping and praying that it would magically
reset. It did.
