Yes, earbud. You know, like in the end of the headphones you put in your ear?
Take one fat old lady.
Add one uncomfortably hot day.
Add a fan at the feet of the fat old lady to cool her off from the effects of said hot day.
Add one great Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers video clip on Facebook that requires the fat old lady to put in an ear bud to listen to said video clip.
Add one husband telling the fat old lady to take a peek at Murphy who is being his usual crazed self (this time, sitting sideways in the cat food bowl).
Remove ear bud so, fat old lady can peek at the cat.
CLACK, CLACK, CLACK, CLACK, CLACK.
An ear bud that falls into a fan, will come out skinned of any excess plastic and/or rubber.
