All day yesterday – and surprise! Hurray! – today as well, there is this really horrible terrible sound right outside my office window that can only be described as ‘EHHHHHHHHHRRRRRRRRRRRRRAHHHHHHHERRRRRRRRRRRRAHHHHHHHHHHHUGHHHHHHHHHerrrrrrrrrrAHHHHHHHHH.’
I think it is construction related? It sounds as if someone is drilling through a tube sock, and into the building, or rather, into my skull. I feel on the brink of epileptic seizure if it doesn’t soon stop. Or maybe: I’ll get used to it, and I won’t even hear it anymore, until 20 years later, my noise-induced brain tumor is discovered?
