So, New Years Day, I decided was the day to inform my neighbor about his TV. Now, I am a very cowardly lion, so I didn't do it in person. I mean, you just never know, right? I decided a note was in order, an anonymous note. Oh, and did I mention, I was too chicken to even DELIVER it? I don't know what it is, but I am VERY adverse to confrontation of any sort. I guess I need to work on my assertiveness skills. Anyway, Erin delivered the note for me, and in the past 2 days, the TV, though still somewhat audible at a low level, is much quieter. Like, I still know he's watching a comedy, because I can kind of hear the laugh track, but I don't know which one. Quite a difference from New Year's Day when Ted and Erin were like "Is that Law & Order?" And, indeed, it doesn't tke a detective (har har) to realize that when you can hear the characters talking about Hudson University and the characteristic "dum-dum." I'm still going to get a new set of thicker carpets. I need to feel a little more insulated. But, hey, if the note helps a little, I'll take it!
