As some might remember, one of the things Xander and I disagreed on was the topic of sleeping with earplugs. He thought it was great, I thought it was not-so great because someone could come in and kill me and he’d never hear it…. although, that could be the reason he wears them, who knows!
Anyhow, it’s true… I’ve been converted!
Along with mosquitos and sunburns, the summer also means hearing every sneeze, sigh and screw that takes place in our neighbours apartments… or in our parking lot. The sounds go out their windows and into ours, making it very hard for a light sleeper like me to get a full nights sleep. So on one desperate evening I caved and got Xander to give me a pair of his new earplugs so I could try to get some sleep.
I squished those suckers and stuffed them into my ears, trying to ignore that weird feeling that made me want to swallow as they touched something weird in there. Then sat and smiled as they expanded and the temporary deafness set in.
I’ve never slept so soundly in my life!
It seems kind of strange, this nightly ritual of kissing each other goodnight and then stuffing green blobs into our ears… but I can’t help it, I’m hooked.
