This morning, difficult child came up to me in the kitchen at 6 a.m. and said, "Can I borrow your ear buds?" Note that I got an MP4 for Christmas a year ago and never used it; it disappeared. Strange, since I had it in the pkg in my LOCKED office. I found it last month in difficult child's room. I downloaded two jazz albums and got them onto my computer hard drive by still can't figure out how to get the music onto the MP4. In the meantime, I bought my first pr of earbuds and used them once at the gym. Once I get the music onto the MP4, I'll be able to use the ear buds with it. difficult child goes through a pr of ear buds every two wks. I think it's because he yanks them out by the cord instead of pinching the part that goes into the ear. "No." "Why not?" "We've been through this before. No discussion. No." "You are SO SELFISH!" Hey, I'm thinking it's about time.
