In my years as a radio announcer, I bet I've broken more than a dozen pair of headphones. But I've never had a pair of headphones break me...until today.

It was supposed to be just another typical day at work here at Y105. I grabbed my headphones to do the afternoon show, but this time they grabbed me! My headphones pinched the skin between my thumb and pointer finger on my left hand and wouldn't let go. The more I tried to fight it, the tighter the pinch. So I did what any normal person would do in that situation. I grabbed my phone to take a picture.

After a deep breath, I carefully undid the plastic pinch and managed to get them off. Had there been a microscope nearby I'm almost certain I would have seen a droplet or two of blood. Taking no chances, I ran my left hand under cold water and grabbed the first aid kit. I'm now sporting a tiny bandage but I think I'll live. I'll hold off on filing for workman's comp...at least for now.
