It is after 9:00 p.m. and some inconsiderate fuck is doing something outside that sounds like slicing through metal with a metal blade. Or a speciality dentist is performing laborious root canal on an enormous robot with particularly bad teeth. Either way, it's grating on my nerves.

I rolled up foam earplugs and inserted them deeply enough into my ear canals, so now I can barely hear even my own keyboard clack. Oddly enough, I also feel numb. Everything outside is numbed. But the ringing in my head, my heartbeat, and everything else within me is amplified.

What a tradeoff.
