I Cannot Live In My Own House

This morning my back was hurting, so while I waited for the chiropractor to open so I might possibly make an appointment for ASAP, I decided to work from home.

Then the neighbor’s dogs started barking. They started barking at 07:32. And they did. not. stop. So I decided to get dressed as quickly as possible and walk to work, despite the back pain. I made it half-way down the block and had turn around in agony. So I decided to drive because I could not walk to work and I could not stay and live IN MY OWN HOUSE BECAUSE I AM BEING ASSAULTED BY MY NEIGHBORS. So, crying in misery, shaking in pain, I stumbled into the car and drove the 2 minutes to work.

I WANT THE NOISE TO END. PLEASE GOD, LET THE BARKING STOP! I’LL DO ANYTHING AT THIS POINT!! CAN I TAKE A PILL THAT MAKES ME DEAF?! CAN I BUILD A 15-FOOT HIGH NOISE WALL AROUND MY PROPERTY?! I WILL DO ANYTHING!!!

In all ways that matter, we are alone.

We may walk with others

We may laugh with others

We may talk with others

We may cry with others

These externalities do not define us

They reflect us.

Who cares to know another soul

To express earnest interest in the inner workings of an( )other?

For some this is not reality

But it is mine

And for that it is all of yours.
