I'm Musically Screwed!

By
Real Estate Agent with Helping people in transition

OK, let's get this right out in the open before the ranting begins...I love my partner Linda. She's not only my "Real Estate wife" as many have referred to us as, but she's one of my closest friends too. We have a great time working together, hanging socially, and just plain goofing off. We always joke that we're only married through Real Estate. But thankfully we go home at the end of the day to our respective homes. She goes home to her hubby of something like 100 years and me to my house plants and empty fridge.

Linda is one of the coolest girls I know. We sneak into concerts together, have been backstage for numerous shows, and work like a tag team wrestling act, seamlessly expanding on each other's statements when on listing or buying appointments.

Now the ranting begins!

Yesterday, Linda finally threw away her 8-Track and moved into the 21st century! She bought an Ipod!

So, we went to my home and got it all set up for her. I have all my music digitized and we started loading her Ipod with music.  She scrolled through my collection and loaded some Beatles, Creedence, Tom Petty and Fleetwood Mac.....Fair enough. I'm a big time Dead Head, 60's music lover and I like all her choices, even love them all.....What could be wrong with the Beatles? Or Creedence?

But Linda also like pop music AND Oprah (UGGGH!)...and Linda is one of those girls who is dedicated to whatever she's working on. So, in the 12 hours she's owned this 21st century gadget, she's been on Ebay searching for accessories and I'm certain there will be some ABBA on her Ipod within the next day or so!

Now, I personally don't care what she puts on HER Ipod. But I know she's searching for a speaker system and will eventually want to bring her "music" to the office and subject me to the likes of ABBA and, God forbid.....Air Supply?

Don't get me wrong here. I'm not saying I'm the coolest thing since sliced bread.....But Air Supply?

I'm going to have to combat this atrocity she's perpetrating on humanity (and especially me) by playing some Hendrix or some really spacey Grateful Dead or....OH, I know! I'll play her all time hate.....Frank Zappa!

Yes, that's it! I've got enough Zappa to make her lose her mind!

But in the meantime, I'll settle  back with some John Lennon accompanied by Clapton, Keith Richards and Mitch Mitchell from the Hendrix Experience.......If that doesn't work, it's all Zappa, all the time!

Hi Craig, I really enjoyed this post by you and your significant other's input. It does have a touch of me and my real estate wife's own musical battles. You see I have tube equipment which she can see when sitting in the living room. This infuiates her because the tubes aren't enclosed in a metal jacket, and this isn't even the beginning of this propblem...she can see the wires to all the different components in the back, but you have to have it open to diffuse the heat. Now onto the music. She appreciates lots of what I have, which is in the thousands of LPs and CDs as I've been collecting since the late 50's. My jazz and rock collection is my pride and joy, but last week I put on a piece of classical music which really bothered her. That was a first. So as you can tell I feel for you with a similar story. My wife would never get an Ipod, so I'm safe with mine. She likes her music soft and smooth and I like it edgy. I guess that's what make the world go round :)
