The neighbors behind me are having a party. It sounds like a big one, and it’s been going on for hours. From my bed I can hear conversation, music… And despite the fact that it’s after midnight, I don’t find the noise bothersome at all. It’s quite comforting, actually.
I am 10 years old again, lying in bed listening to the sounds of my parents & their friends in the front of the house. They drink & smoke & play bridge, and Cam Lamb gets very drunk and dances on our coffee table.
