An Awfully Quiet Monday Night
Monday night used to mean two TV sets blaring at this hour. The neighbors screeching while watching their favorite hunk on a nightly TV show. Their dog constantly barking and only quieting down at 4am (I think).
It's currently 9:57 PM from where I am. Both kids go to bed at 8. And my parents will each watch their own preferred shows on their own TV sets, which are just a few meters away from each other. So, yes, chaos.
Each one would ask the other to lower the volume. After some time, you could hear that the volumes for both TVs are slowly going up until one of them yells to lower the volume.
But tonight, both my parents are in bed early. Must be the weather. From a distance, I can hear the wind howling and the waves crashing onto the concrete seawall.
The neighbors are mighty quiet tonight, too. Come to think of it, I just noticed that their dog is even really quiet. Am I the only one still up in our neighborhood?
