I finally crashed around 6:20a. I'd only been out for a couple of hours when this terribly loud noise woke me up. I couldn't figure out what it was! Just as soon as it would stop and I'd think there would be peace... the noise would happen again. Oh, it was awful. And I was frustrated because I couldn't figure out what kept making this terrible racket over and over and over again.
And then it hit me... It was the telephone ringing.
I looked over, picked up the receiver about two inches and sat it back down. Ahh, silence. Lasting silence. I immediately went back to sleep without a care of who had been calling.
