And now, another... Good Idea, Bad Idea

Good Idea: Scheduling the time you have to take off for Wednesday morning so you can sleep in.

Bad Idea: Scheduling the time you have to take off for the Wednesday morning when the roof is being replaced.

It sounds like Godzilla is playing with my house, and like eventually he's going to break through the roof and get me. It sounds like the roofers are just jumping up and down and occasionally falling through the roof, rather than doing any replacing. It sounds like they are scraping every shingle up by hand, whereas the loud drone of machinery would perhaps be more soothing just because it would be more regular.

Point is, it sounds like I'm not getting back to sleep.

My dear, this is what it would be like if you lived in the city, like me. (City, ha! Burlington, a city?) I deal with stuff like this all the time. :)

On your roof? All the time? What's the matter with your roof?

That happened at a house I lived in during school. Someone just decided our roof needed fixing. Twas not one of us. Another time, during a brief 2 weeks at home between apartments, I woke up and found my grandpa on our roof. My mom was gone. Everyone else was sleeping. The doors were locked. He just decided to come play on our roof, clean out our gutters, and kill some bees.

I am curious...
Who was your old favorite?
Me? Must kill Richard...

Don't worry, you were never in danger of that. No, when next we meet at Greenwich, Haiku Richard will be by my side, eating bonbons, and you will be but a lowly lute-player, who we shall together kick and command to play us "Stairway to Heaven". Until I behead him.
