Desperate Working Mommas
Your one-stop site for fanatical television snarking, questionable political analysis, occasional attempts to address the parenting issues facing working mothers, and halfhearted promises to stop obsessing about the entertainment industry, already! Oh, not to mention the random bitching and moaning. There's always that.

"Come on, feel the noise!"

Noises. LOUD ones. Everywhere. The light above my cubicle is buzzing, like, "bzzzzzzzzzz..." Has it always done that? Has it always been so irritatingly buzzy? My cube neighbor's keystrokes are like my son's fingers crashing through his piano drills. It is as if I can almost feel them, I can almost tell what he's typing, simply by moving with the crescendos and ebbs. Is that weird? Should it be so LOUD here? Yet so quiet? I close my eyes and for a split-second, maybe two split-seconds, which I suppose would make a whole second, but who cares, it just feels so good. I'm in bed, aching head cushioned in my pillow, snuggled under warm covers, right at that exact second the shivering from the chills has almost subsided, the silence of the empty house nearly deafening, but in the GOOD way... until I jump, startled at a sudden, earth-shattering TAPTAPTAP! and my eyes fly open to my boss who is standing at my cubicle, tapping his pen against his blindingly white teeth, and the noise! My God, the NOISE! and suddenly I want to shove that pen right down his throat just to make the pain in my head go away, make him go away, so I can close my eyes again just for one split second, maybe two...

I hate working when I'm sick.

Oh sweetie, go HOME. I hate it when every little teeny tiny thing is so freakishly loud. I hope I'm not typing too loudly here. Oh, and sorry, I didn't mean to yell.
*whispering* I hope you feel better soon, hon.

As far as I'm concerned, there's nothing worse than the ear-shattering noise of milk hitting the cereal in the morning...
