Today I was playing some music. It was a little loud and my brain was doing a merry little jig to ‘Sound of Drums’ when someone knocked on my door. I was improperly attired to face anyone but my mirror, so by the time I lowered the volume and opened the door, I heard someone say ‘Helloooo!’ (I don’t know why.) and slam their door shut. So, there was no one outside when I answered the knock. But I had effectively been shushed. It must have been a well-meaning neighbour, of course, who probably just doesn’t want me to damage my hearing at such a young age. I started watching tv on regular volume when my heart-rate had normalized a little.
I am now waiting for the person living above me to take up tap dancing. I will then do some shushing of my own.
Stay tuned if you’re really into updates on mundane topics.
