Not if there’s a new apartment building going up next to where you live.

It’s 5:45 in the morning and I am awakened by the mellifluous sound of a worker tossing wooden concrete forms from the back of a white pickup.


Another one is tossed from the back of the truck onto a pile of other forms at this construction site next to my apartment.

A few weeks ago, when the previous home had been demolished I knew it was going to get noisy around here when this new building went up.

5:45 in the morning, though?

Yeah, that’s a little too early to be making noise.
