It is very loud in here right now.
The Zune is plugged into the amp, playing at full blast.
Kirk is playing along, with his bass. Loudly.
Children are screaming above the music (because, how could they really hear themselves otherwise?) and dancing crazily around.
Yet here I sit, obviously disturbed by the noise. I enjoy knowing the rest of the fam is enjoying the moment, but this kind of sensory overload is the sort of stuff that makes my spinal column vibrate.
I think I will retire to a quiet corner of the house, with a new book. Do you think the noise will follow me?
