Is it the heat? The fact that school is out and boredom has set in? It’s just too nice to be cooped up in the office? What? Everyone on the boards seems so ANGRY lately. I swear, I even saw **Zenster ** get a little impatient the other day. All I can think is he was trapped in the same traffic on the 101 as me.
Nor am I immune. Someone drove up my butt this morning and I slammed on my brakes as hard as I could just for the satisfaction of watching the fear in the driver’s eyes. I actually maliciously enjoyed it…
I was reading the phone-sex ads at the back of the Village Voice, and I saw one headlined, “TALK TO HOT NASTY WOMEN.” And I thought, I do that every day on the subway: “Jesus Christ, this goddam train is stifling—can’t they turn on the f*cking a/c?!”
I think it is the heat. My neighbor puts up with me blasting my rock & roll music at ungodly volumes during the day, but when she chooses to play her swing music at 9am and I’m trying to sleep… well that’s too much to handle. So, after tossing and turning for about 15 minutes trying to fall back asleep, I pried open my window and screamed “It’s 9A.M., turn that shit down!” at the top of my lungs.
That’s when I realize that my clock radio stations got screwed up and the noise was actually emanating from my room all along.
