Last night my ear buds saved my life

Times and ways I use them to prevent murder and/or suicide in my daily life
  1. When my coworkers discuss the validity of Black Lives Matter
  2. On the subway between the mariachi band and break dancers
  3. While out shopping and encountering screaming children with parents that can magically tune them out while I envision stopping the screaming with my own two hands
  4. On the red eye from JFK to LAX
  5. In a coffee shop to drown out the chatter as I pretend to write
  6. In uber and lyft vehicles
    Please forego the small talk this may well be the only slice of this day that I can Depech mode in ✌️ peace
