A MYSTERY, or The Strangeness of Modern Life

This is the moment at which I look up at my computer and, marveling at the music coming out of it, suddenly wonder just where the fuck it is coming from. And notice for the first time that I don’t see any speakers nor any sign of speakers.

And last weekend Brenden pulled the antenna of out my phone and said, “What is this shit? It isn’t even connected to anything, it’s a plastic stick stuck in hole.”

You’re about as likely to receive calls through that plastic hunk as through a fork, so Brenden receives calls through both. And music echoes out from somewhere in deep my computer’s narrow heart, soft and sweet.
