First, let me set the stage. My flight out of Boston was at 6:00 AM this morning. Which meant getting up at ~3:30 AM so I could knock out the three s's, check-out, turn rental car in, etc. Last night we had to do some maintenance on our application which was started at around 11:00 PM. This lasted until about 11:30 PM and after I wrapped up with work and brushed my teeth I finally headed to bed knowing that I had less that 4 hours before I needed to wake back up to leave.
As I headed to bed, I grabbed the remote and turned off the TV. Silence and sleep...exactly what my body desired...or was it? The walls in my hotel must have been slightly thicker than a sheet of paper for I could hear every breath, bed squeak, and moan of the people in the next room making sweet, sweet love.
I let this go on for a few minutes before I decided to try and drown them out with the TV. This didn't actually work too well. I was steady flipping through the stations and finally landed on a Latino channel where there was a soap opera on (come on...the girl looked good so I stopped). I could still hear my neighbors and for a brief period while they were making love on TV I actually muted the sound so I could use the live sound effects. Didn't match up too well, but it made me giggle.
I've got to hand it to the dude...this went on for at least 10-15 minutes while I was aware and not sure about what was going on before I turned off my TV. Needless, to say...when that alarm went off this morning I was not happy that they robbed me of the extra 15 minutes of sleep.
