Ear Plugs--A Wonderful Invention
I used them off and on until I ran out. My Walmart didn't carry the same exact kind so I had to buy a girly pink package which although had a higher dB rating, they didn't work as well. Even though I'm a basement dweller I still use them during the week. Since I go to bed at ten, I usually get woken up when hubby gets home at 11:00 ish. He sounds like a Mastodon tromping through the house and then has to run water and the hot water tank sits about 3 feet from my bed in a closet. So you get the picture. I pop my ear plugs in and sleep like a baby.
One night on vacation they worked a little too well. The manager's room, just two doors down from us was broken into and the guy almost landed right on their bed. There was lots of yelling and chasing going on and I didn't hear any of it. Hubby told me in the morning that he heard sounds like cupboards slamming and yelling and figured it was a couple fighting. Of course the next night I didn't sleep well because I was nervous about the guy coming back so I didn't use them.
Before we came home we went back to the same little store and I found them again, and bought two boxes this time. The lady at the counter said "Uh oh, someone snores". I laughed and told her I had to come all this way just to buy more.
So there they sit, tucked under my pillow, waiting for me to return tonight. Mmmmm, sounds like a bit more than a little dependence doesn't it?
