Awesome! Rad! Cool! Take pictures of the set up!...share with people online...ah, can finally enjoy music without tangled earbuds!©-Jamesabt007 Astemoi

The original story that provided inspiration: Working 12 hour days … wrecked … hungry … arrive home, deserted by wife and children … cursing! Scan the cupboard – one package spaghetti … one bottle marinara sauce … run to the kitchen, cook – junk! YUK! Lie down, snooze … visions of culinary delights … Venetian ancestor tickles my ear, tickle, tickle … sauce talk … MAMA MIA! Dash to the vegetable patch … Yum yum … boil water … activate spaghetti … ditto the sauce … slurp, slurp … Terrifico! Magnifico! Slurp! Caramba! Bottle the sauce! Share with guys on street car … ah, me, finally immortal!© - P. Loquesto Newman

All you will need to do this is a pushpin and a wall.

I keep this by the door of my room so when I am waking up in the morning and getting ready to go out, I grab it and go.

After a few nights of keeping the new buds in this way, they will be straightened and nice!
