On Friday the Thirteenth, while Blogger was having the vapors, I thought things couldn't get worse--then my house started beeping. I tried to ignore it,but the Nancy Drew inside me rose up and I turned into the Noise Police.Searched everywhere. Couldn't find it. Oh, the pain, especially since my ear is still wonky from too much air travel. I just wanted to move to a house that didn't beep.

I listened to my iPod, which is a soothing noise for me, and I returned to the dream.
