Token heavy Adam picture
(No comments – that is my MOM)
To someone that has the physical characteristics just a little bit better than a greek god. Something like this:
The reality was somewhere inbetween:
However, over the past few weeks, I have to admit that I think that another body transformation is occurring. . . . I think my ear holes are getting bigger! Let me explain.
I’ve been running with my Sony Walkman MP3 player ever since I received one to try out from Sony. I LOVE it. I’ve used it in 4 or 5 marathons, 100s of training miles (1000s now that I think about it), and even a few shorter sprint races. I’ll hobble along with the soothing voices of podcasters from around the world telling me to run faster and not poop my pants (actually, those might be MY voices inside my head). Either way, I have no complaints about the device. That was, until 2 weeks ago.
The MP3 player fits much like a Bluetooth headset – the music part goes directly into the ear holes (that is the technical term in the manual) with no annoying cords. For some reason though, the thing does NOT stay in either ear anymore! I’ll be running long for less than 2 minutes and it’ll fall out. Frustrating. I’ll put it back in, accidentally hit the song skip button, and the frustration cycle spirals downwards into me scowling at old ladies holding me up at intersections and yelling obscenities at cars as they turn right on red.
Granted, I’ve put the thing through its paces. My sweat is more corrosive than acid in a marshmallow factory which has led to all of the screws being rusted shut and some random hole forming in one side.
Note the music parts for the ear holes and the rust
Still though, I wouldn’t have expected the ear bud deals to wear out so suddenly – so I assume that it has to be my ear holes getting bigger? (Actually I fully realize that after 1500 miles or so, the MP3 player is just plain old wore out, but still, it makes you wonder!)
Does this picture make my ears look big?
That is blond hair, not gray…I SWEAR!
