last night...i entertained...two friends..both female...one ask me if i was watching "american idol" ...i replied that i had not seen it....she goes into a rant about me..."hating music and needing music for stimulus". i mean we are talking major rant...my other guest was kinda taken back by the verbal attack...esp when i said...hey i prefer to read...but it seems reading does not stimulate the brain....you dont use your imagination...well i disagreed...but the rant was on..her major points: 1. when we are in the car, i ask her to turn off the music or turn it down. my reply: you know i dont hear well and the music will interfer with conversation....are you saying that music is more stimulating than conversation....she said yes...i replied that perhaps with her it was..but i found talking to people more stimulating than hearing music that i can listen to at any time. 2. i do not have...own or know how to operate an ipod. the man has one... i pointed out that i dealt with assholes daily who are listening to ipods etc...she replies..that they are ruined by the use of ipods and that it has stunted them....and a person needs to use what was used when they were young...i point out..that 8 tracks are damned hard to find. now for some reason she has it in her head that i will be happier listening to music...more stimulated...she used that word over and over again ....get this ...i couldnt help but notice her nipples were hard...lol...but i digress... now i am very comfortable in silence...i told her that...silence does not bother me..and i prefer it most of the time... so my question to yall...in this forum.... what the fuck? is she crazy or am i...when did silence become a bad thing...why cant one be stimulated by silence...she said...silence never changes.... i disagree...so what say you?
