Sounds that annoy

Have you ever noticed how when you are the one operating the following noisy gadgets, the sound isn't nearly as annoying as when you are the one just hearing the noise?
  • lawn mowers
  • hair dryers
  • vacuums
  • video games
  • the obnoxious vent over the stove.

It is a beautiful day here. I've got the windows wide open. And while I"m glad that one of the neighbors is doing some lawn chores (sadly not the ones with weeds covering their backyard), the sound of his lawnmower is enough to drive me to drink.

Oh who am I kidding? The sound of the five boys I'm tending to makes me crave alcohol...I"m just looking for supporting evidence to allow me to pop open a cold one long before it is 5 o'clock ANYWHERE!

FIVE? kill me now! that's enough justification in itself.

My goodness haven't you been the busy blogger!

I had a cold one today at lunch, then I had to have a nap in the afternoon. Getting old is just not very exciting is it?
