Dare of the Day in May: CDs

If you're one of my younger readers, you might listen to music only on your iPhone, computer, or MP3 player. Maybe you don't own any CDs at all. For those of us (cough) slightly older ladies, there might be a significant stash of CDs in your house and possibly in your car.

Today I dare you (and myself) to sort through your CDs. Find one CD you know you enjoy listening to but haven't heard in a long time (months). Immediately put it on your home stereo and enjoy it. If you really like it, keep it out where you can find it easily, or put it in your car for more listening over the next week. Let's enjoy our possessions and use them.

Next, I dare you to find a CD you know you don't enjoy all that much, and you actually aren't going to listen to it any time soon. I dare you to give the CD away (but don't make it someone else's problem), or throw it away if it's scratched. Sell it on eBay if you can get more than a couple bucks for it (not worth your time/energy and dealing with cheap CD buyers for less than that). I dare you!

Today I'm listening to The Cranberries "Everybody Else is Doing It" album, enjoying it so much I'm a little miffed at myself for putting it away in a box in the garage for so many years.

And I'm getting rid of "The Beverly Hills Cop Soundtrack" CD - no idea why I owned that to begin with!
