A confession

I am 48 years old, and I have only just realised that the AUX socket on a stereo system is not short for AUXOPHONE.

Degree of difficulty: I worked as a broadcast technician for over ten years. Virtually every piece of kit we had included an AUX socket.

This leaves me with one considerable problem: Where the hell do I plug my auxophone?

I am not mad.

Into the tubberware box. Which is full of grated mozzarella Firefox.

You're still using a wired auxophone?. It's probably analogue too, isn't it?
Sheesh!
Digital and wireless! You're not too old to adapt.

What about the ORCS socket?
