You are in the car. You are not driving. You are listening to music you have not chosen. But the driver has chosen this music. The driver makes the decisions. You are in the driver’s car and you abide by the rules. You go home. You are not driving. You are listening to music you have not chosen. But the driver who is no longer behind the wheel has chosen this music. The driver doesn’t use headphones. But you do. And you put them on whenever you can. And then the driver will ask what on earth are you listening to. Anna Karenina, you reply.
