Plant-icide . . .

A neighbor, not directly behind us, is having a party. This neighbor has been playing his party loudly for most of the day, off and on. Right now, he is playing thump-THUMP, thump-THUMP. Earlier there was playing of thumpety-BAM, thumpety-BANG. Sometimes it is hard to tell the difference. Wait, it just changed to thump-bang-THUMP, so there is a difference.

Why will this will not give a massive headache to the partier? Perhaps, if there will be a hangover anyway, there may be nothing to choose between the two kinds of pain.

This may kill our hibiscus, to say nothing of the new roses . . .

In order to have a quiet 'hood, one must invest in earplugs. That way, only the vibrations are felt. And vibrations might just get rid of termites. Shake 'em right out of the house.

Hahaha! This is exactly why we live where the only sound after dark is that of the crickets. They are so many that you can hear them through the door. Somehow, I think I would take crickets over the drunken karoke singer we were sarinaded by when living in Miami in the apartment. Although it was quite adventurous to yell "SHUT- UP" on the balcony along with the other irratated tenents. You better believe the very next morning we were thumping our version of christian music full blast, just for him. So were all the others that were kept up by his inability to sing under the influence.
