How’s that for a unspecified time period?
Woke up very early this morning to this terrible scraping sound. I did my best to ignore it and go back to sleep, but it wasn’t going anywhere. I started trying to figure out what the sound was… My first guess was it was some kids who tied our dumpster to their car and were trying to drag it around. But then the car sounds I heard didn’t jive with that theory, so I settled on a drunk person slamming repeatedly into the dumpster with their car. Hitting it, backing up, slamming into it again, each time moving the dumpster just a little bit.
Eventually, I was awake enough to look out the bedroom window. Imagine my disappointment when I saw it was just a snowplow. I prefer imagination.
