Me: “I want to listen to Janis Joplin!”
My all-knowing iPod: “I don’t think that’s a good idea right now.”
Me: “I don’t care. Play Janis!”
My all-knowing iPod: “No. You are working with spreadsheets and are already in a bad mood, and I know you’ve been listening to Postal Service all morning. Listening to Janis Joplin right now will make you feel like a helpless cog in the machine. I refuse to play ‘Me and Bobby McGee’ one more time. Ain’t happenin’. And don’t ask for The Wall, either. I know what’s good for you.”
Me: “I WANT JANIS.”
My all-knowing and rather insufferable iPod: “No. You’re gonna take Grace Potter, and you’re gonna like it, dammit.”
Me: ::humming along to ‘Ah, Mary‘:: Dammit.
