Setting down to do a large piece of concentration-requiring work this afternoon, I cranked the iTunes volume up on KCRW and started to work. Almost as soon as I did so, a call came in on the house line from my inlaws, Grant and Marina. In my work-drenched, paranoid state, I glanced at the phone and immediately assumed they were calling to ask me to turn the volume down.
Was that indeed the case?
Often times, I restort to pounding on the all to communicate with the other tenents in my building. Poundings take place between 12:00am and 5:00am on weekends.
