Sometimes I turn my mp3 player on to disconect myself from the world. It's not a difficult task since the world is often quite boring.
When you walk around a city and your life has a borrowed soundtrack you feel the main character of a film. Everyone else is an extra or, in some rare cases, a secondary actor. The plots are ridiculously simplistic: "Pedro goes to Sainsbury's" or "Pedro walks to work" but life seems so much more thriling this way.
