I'm just a Wild Party Mamma!!!
There are a couple of young gentlemen who live in the house exactly opposite to us. Apparently, according to our next door neighbour, they often have loud parties. I don't notice...I go to bed with the chickens, take a sleeping pill, put in my ear plugs, and turn on the window air conditioner. I hear nothing.
Until last night.
It was a beautiful cool night, with a nice fresh breeze blowing, so I had the windows open, and was sitting up in bed, watching a documentary, sewing hexagon flowers.
...and it just got louder and louder...and the yelling started. And I thought...ya know? If they turned down the music a bit, they wouldn't have to yell so loud...
So, I put on my housecoat and slippers, and scuffed across the street, and rang the door bell.
The music turned off; voices became silent.
I waited for awhile, but no one answered the door.
So, I stepped onto the lawn and called up to the window.
ME: Hey! No one is answering the door!
HE: Sorry, was the music too loud?
ME: No, no, it was great!
HE: Okay, we'll quiet it down.
ME: No, no, I came to PARTY with you guys! I live across the street, and we have a rule around here....if the neighbourhood can hear it, the neighbourhood is INVITED!
HE: Oh, okay, well half the people are gone now, and we're just shuttin' her down, so I'll be sure to invite you next time.
ME: AWESOME!!! See that window directly across from you? That's my bedroom window, so no need for a special invite, I hear EVERYTHING that goes on over here. I was so excited, look! I came over in my nightgown and housecoat!
HE: hehe (nervous laughter)
So I went back home, got back into bed, and Hubby says: "That shut them up, didn't it?"
