1 AM, what’s that noise?


I’m laying in bed, watching a movie.  The husband person is out celebrating Carlos’ birthday.  It’s 1AM, yes I should be asleep, but since it is spring break, my schedule is all wonky.  I hear a noise.   Noises aren’t unusual, as we are by the highway.  But this noise continually gets closer and closer.  It’s a sound that I recognize instantly.

It’s the sound of two drunk men racing the plasma cars down the hill.  At 1 AM.  I go out in my pj’s and stand at the end of the driveway.  I can see the tall and thin silhouette of Mr. Husband and the large round shape of Carlos walking up the hill.  I wait, and then I hear them start.  Whooping and hollering then come racing down.  I can see the glow of the Husband person’s cigarette.  As they stop in front of me, they laugh like a couple of seven year old boys.  Have I mentioned that my husband person is 33?  And Carlos is now 23?  Both are drunk and loopy.

As I type this, they come in and decide they are hungry.  They know better than to ask me to make them some food!

  1. Too funny! Last time anything like that happened around here, they raced (and tried to jump a ramp) on their lawnmowers. Nice…
