The Sound of Silence – Thoughts of an Insomniac

I woke up around 3:30 this morning to go to the bathroom and then had a hard time falling back asleep right away.

So many thoughts were racing through my head; thoughts such as:

Wow.  It’s so quiet.  If I woke up at 3:30 am at my old place, henceforth known as 2020 N Hell, I’d hear music blasting from the Beaumont and people screaming at each other in the street.

Which reminds me, I wonder if that couple I heard fighting in the street once at 4am on a Wednesday ever made it.  Guy: “GET IN THE FUCKING CAR.”  Girl:  “FUCK YOU!”  Lather, rinse, repeat.

My lower back hurts.  I wonder if I can procure illegal painkillers.

I need more coffee mugs.

And wine glasses.

It is SO quiet.  The sound of silence is wonderful.

Great.   Now I have that song stuck in my head.

At least it’s a good song!

But it still reminds me of that scene from Kingpin

So, there you have it – it’s no wonder it took me so long to fall back asleep.  My mind was racing out of control.
