The relief of being back home is tempered with annoyance caused by my breathtakingly inconsiderate upstairs neighbors (I miss the days when the pot-growing bass player lived there). Ever since I returned, they’ve been blaring music 10 to 12 hours a day, non-stop. It’s gotten on my already frayed nerves to the point that I reserved a hotel room for New Year’s Eve to spare myself the escalation in volume and duration of the racket which will accompany their party. Apparently they feel inviting me means they can make all the noise they want. I won’t be their victim anymore.
