Sleeping next to V is like being caught in a little natural disaster… rumble, rumble…. SNORE…. he is somehow able to orchestrate a thunderstorm, a gentle earthquake, a little hurricane and why not throw in a mini volcanic eruption all while he is in dreamland. I will have you know! He would kick Beethoven’s ass when it comes to putting a symphony together using just the natural elements of the world.

When my sister said she’ll be getting me some earplugs – I did a little jig! I haven’t been able to find any other types of ear plugs apart from the bright orange foam ones. Why they make it bright orange beats me – it might get lost in your ear or something.

When she handed me the ear plugs (EAR PUTTY SILICONE EAR PLUGS from TYCO Healthcare) – I almost kissed her feet.

So sleep deprived I was by this point. It had been… gosh… 2 weeks… I had once read that soldiers at war went insane because of the lack of sleep… No, I am not comparing myself to the bravery of soldiers, I wouldn’t even think of that. I was just measuring my level of sleep deprivation, on a smaller scale.

She got me two variations – the transparent ones that are whitish, and pinky transparents ones. I’ve tried them both, but I do find the pink ones softer and easier to mold to my ear. I have small ears, so I wish they were just a little smaller.

They are much much better than the foam ones!

God bless ear plugs. My sanity thanks them in abundance.
