A Song a Day – Day 318

I don’t really like silence. I know a lot of people do, but I don’t. During the day when I’m home alone there’s usually music coming from somewhere and even in the shower I like to have some background noise. Chewy usually turns it off – he does like silence.

However. I’ve just spent three days in the company of seven (French-speaking, but that was a secondary problem) adults who talked non-stop. Yesterday a couple more turned up, and the volume increased. Don’t get me wrong, it wasn’t boring mindless drivel they were talking about; it was warm, funny, family chit-chat. But it seemed to never end. There was never a moment of silence.  A little voice at the back of my head started to silently plead with them to stop talking, and a louder voice particularly wanted them to stop talking to me. Now we’re back and I am so talked out I’ve even turned off the radio. Ah, the sound of silence.

Song of the day

I can’t do it. I just can’t do it. I can’t take any more. You’ll have to make up your own tune for today, because today the only noise I want to hear is silence.

  1. Wouahaha! Tu es en colocation avec des Français? C’est clair que le silence peut être bon parfois (chez moi c’est trop silencieux et j’écoute toujours la même musique d’où la chance d’être tombé sur ce blog!). Je suis déjà super impressionné que tu ais tenu 317 jours!!
