A Morning Without MY Coffee

I don't drink coffee. I have in fact never even tried it! So how do I jumpstart my day? It's with music. I have it going pretty much all the time. There's even a little radio in my bathroom that I play while showering! However, it's especially important in the car. I need it to psych myself up for the circus act I perform each day in Room 208.
This morning I was racing up Interstate 95 towards the innards of the ghetto where I teach. Imagine my despair when all of sudden a horrifying sound came out of the passenger door speaker. It actually resembled the sound of nails on a chalkboard, and yes - I shivered. The car is just over a year old, this should not be happening! I quickly turned the radio off praying that when I turned it back on the sound would miraculously have fixed itself. I'm panicking because I don't know how I will ever be able to counsel, teach and referee without my daily fix of John Mayer. Power back on...same horrific sound, possibly even worse. I am forced to shut the damn thing off and gulp, leave it off. Do you know how excruciating the sound of silence is in the car? Needless to say, today's circus act was not one of my best. I'm toying with the idea of signing up for Dunkin Donuts coffee club....

Oh boy, I can't imagine not having the music. My best wishes that the speakers are under warranty and are fixed quickly. I myself just used rage against the machine to make it through an interval run (why?, because I am crazy) on the treadmill the other day. Thank God for music, because I wouldn't function without it. Peace be with you, and I hope it's fixed soon!
