Last night Azeroth had a very enthusiastic guest over for a “visit” around 2:30am. I was just about to fall asleep when I heard the sounds of two drunk people attempting to be quiet as they entered the apartment. A message to all the roommates of the world: you aren’t nearly as stealthy as you think after a few drinks.
I am usually a very heavy sleeper, but I was unable to sleep through the sounds of crazy monkey love that started up across the hall. My room door is pretty thin, and Azeroth’s is a sliding door that offers literally no sound dampening at all. On top of that, both of them sounded like they were having a very good time.
Don’t get me wrong, I appreciate when people are able to express how much they are enjoying themselves in an intimate situation. However, it is still possible to enjoy physical affection when you aren’t screaming at the top of your lungs, especially at 2:30am with thin walls.
After unsuccessfully trying to drown out the sound, I decided to take a nice 30 minute walk around the neighbourhood. When I got home, all was quiet.
My day at work was long and miserable due to lack of sleep (again).
(2015 Update) The next day Azeroth told me “you’ll never believe who was in my room last night”. He never told me and to this day I still don’t know. Come on man – it’s been 10 years, give me a hint!
