Of Sound and Temperature

As I get older,  my hearing is diminished and my driving is slower, especially in rush hour traffic. I find public radio and classical music stations calming in stressful driving situations. Such was today as I navigated driving from OKC. During a particularly soft movement of the music, I adjusted the volume on the wheel keeping my eyes on I40 and the other drivers. Again and again I adjusted it with increasing difficulty in hearing the music. And I grew warmer and warmer until finally I discovered I had confused the volume and temperature settings on the steering wheel. 

The quiet man is often hot tempered but the the loud man is apt to be cold blooded. But woe to the aged man who knows not his volume or temperature (Hesitations 40:22).
