My husband makes fun of me, but I hate all noise (except the stereo cranked up to listen to MY tunes, and that happens about once a year around here). I hate: lawnmowers, weed wackers, bush trimmers, chainsaws, motorcycles, ATVs, loud boom boxes (never noticed which color the folks are that blare them–just hate 'em), loud car engines, radios, car sound systems, trucks, jackhammers, repair trucks, sirens,snowblowers, snowplows, garbage trucks- do you want me to go on? yep-I’m white, but I see no correlation between noise aversion and race. Sorry, but there it is. IMO, my noise aversion comes from working in an ICU for
10+ years, where 24 different alarms in each room could go off at any given time (and did).
I like the sound of wind, even when it’s howling, birds-even at 0430, waves, raccoons mating (under our porch), leaves, and trains, far in the distance.
Sorry, what was the question again? I couldn’t hear you.
(lame, I know…)
