Anger: Noise

I doubt that there is a town of less than 4000 people that generates as much noise as this one. It is always pretty loud, but last night was the worst of the 8 months I have been here.

I had no idea that the local Fire Department has 10,000 trucks and the local Sheriff had just as many squad cars. Each and every one of these vehicles drove past my bedroom windows at about 4:00 AM this morning, twice. I think that a few hundred pulled right up on the lawn under the windows just to blow that infernal “WAMMMMMPPP” sound and then speed off. There is no lawn damage, so I must have imagined it.

Of course, my daughter woke up from the noise and ran into our bedroom. The amazing thing was that we were awake and expecting to hear the “pitter-patter” of little feet running toward out door a bunch of time, but she didn’t come running until near the end of the noise barrage. If the town/county had invested just a little less on noise-makers, she might have slept through it.

Now, those of you that have ever had a 3 year-old know that once they are up, they are UP and ready to play. Dam the torpedoes daddy, TICKLE ME!

I ready for my nap Mr. Deville!
