The dull backyard was looking across the backyards of other houses. On a dull, rainy winter day, while she was in the bathroom, she heard a familiar tune. At first she thought it was her husband who was playing it. She turned off the faucet, and pricked up her ears. It was "I Was Made For Loving You" from the Kiss. The next song was California Dreaming. She smiled widely. It was perhaps her favourite. It was certainly her favourite. Next was Kozmic Blues - Janis Joplin. She dried her hands on the towel.

she sang. "When your playlist plays somewhere else, it is even better." she thought.
