That time I pulled my headphones out of my pocket and one of the rubber end bits had fallen off. But it was a sort of light green colour and the trees had recently dropped loads of little bits of green, so I searched and searched and never found it. So I had to switch up to the slightly more uncomfortable large size rubber plugs.
And then a month or so later I hoovered the bedroom thoroughly and after I’d put the hoover away I spotted something on the floor and gave a ‘tut’ at the impossibility of missing this tiny thing with the hoovering I gave, and I picked it up and it was my missing medium sized rubber end bit. It must have come off as I put them into my pocket that time.
So then I had my classic medium sized, well fitting plugs back in and I celebrated by putting on a The Julie Ruin album.
