sleepless

I went to bed last night around midnight and snuggled in. I half woke up around 2:30am when I heard people talking really loudly. I couldn't figure out if it was the neighbors or someone in the street below... but when they didn't stop and then put the music on really loud I started to get annoyed.

I figure they must have gone out at night and then since the bars closed they decided to continue on in the apartment. The last time I went to go ask them to be quiet they didn't hear me knocking for a good five minutes and then said they would keep it down - but of course didn't.

So this time I decided to try a new strategy... I waited for a while and then around 3:30 got fed up and called the police. I think somehow the damsel in distress works well. The receptionist sent out a car and they arrived within 5 minutes. I let them in the building and they said they would go "sort things out" and then I heard them banging on the door downstairs. There was some loud words exchanged, then the music was cut and then all was quiet...

It was bliss.

Sometimes its good to be a girl ;-)

It's nice to hear the French police can be that efficient, although I hope not to have to make such a call.

Thanks for your comment about my wine drinking techniques. Hehe. We seriously considered smashing the bottle if the cork pushing shananigans didn't work, but we were afraid to break the bottle and spill all the wine!
