A neighbor of mine recently purchased a motorcycle. Each night he serenades us by repeatedly gunning the engine and then riding up and down the street.
The first couple of times it wasn’t a big deal. From time to time to we all make a bit of noise. We try to be good neighbors, but I am sure that we’re guilty of something. Every now and then we have a party or play the stereo with the windows open.
But motorcycle boy has pushed past the point at which you can easily ignore inconsiderate actions. Motorcycle boy has zoomed right to the point at which I like to imagine inserting a broomstick into his spokes or alternatively leave a rope tied across the street.
Now some of you are wondering why I haven’t just complained to motorcycle boy about the noise. I am glad that you asked because here is the rub. I haven’t figured out which house motorcycle boy lives in. I think that he lives behind my house.
We have good size yard, so that should give you a sense of how loud motorcycle boy is revving the engine. Anyway, I haven’t been able to figure out which house motorcycle boy calls home. If he were on my street I’d just walk outside and look, but he isn’t.
And the last occasion upon which motorcycle boy played with his toy found me dressed inappropriately for conversing about noise. So thus far he has escaped the conversation.
But what I really want to know is if the neighbors who live closest to him are deaf.
