I will put on the white noise maker before bed, because every morning, at around 5 in the morning, the inexplicable drip drip dribbling sound from the floor above me begins. It lasts only the span of a few minutes, but I abhor its arrival every time. It is not dropped water or a dribbling ball, for the speed at times is much too rapid to be either, but it sounds like a combination of the two. Call it a water ball being bounced on the floor above my ceiling at lightning speed.The sound makes me come out of my skin with crazed annoyance. Yes, for being awakened so often, and yes, because it comes every day, and yes, because it comes so early, but more than anything, most of all, I go insane at the sound because I don't know what the fuck it is.
