Unquiet Time

The sign in the elevator lobby read "We observe quiet time between 10 p.m. and 8 a.m." The couple next door apparently didn't care.

At 1:30 a.m., he woke from what he thought was a dream. But the sounds continued.

Right there, right there. Oh, baby. YES!

He went to take a shower. They were done when he came out, so he dozed until 3. He tried not to listen to the new intoxicating rhythm. At 3:30, he showered once more.

He didn't care if they did it again. He was off to the airport to head home.

Do all the good you can, by all the means you can, in all the ways you can, in all the places you can, at all the times you can, to all the people you can, as long as ever you can. (John Wesley)
