I am experimenting with social responses.  So, for example.  This woman next door was screaming and cursing at someone in her house, “what (*&(*& bull((*&*!@!! &what do you want me to do (*&(*&1!@#”–  but her aural explosion was highly audible from where I was standing, up until then, peacefully folding laundry.

I’ve been a little sleep deprived lately, but I also have been singing a lot of high notes in choir lately — so I tried a high volume operatic response through the open windows.  Mostly improvised:

OH MY GOD!!! WHAT IS GOING ON!!!  OH MY! GOD!!! WHAT IS GOING ON!  I WANT TO LEAVE THIS WORLD!  I WANT TO LEAVE THIS WORLD! OH MY GOD!! WHAT IS GOING ON!!!!

I know she’s going to find me and strangle me later (this is always my fear — angry responses to unsolicited performance art), but there were a few more lines of obscenities exchanged and then the yelling stopped.
