In praise of quietness

I was at a party on Saturday night. Everyone was bellowing their heads off, because as the music got louder everyone shouted louder to be heard over everyone else. A common scenario. It ended up becoming unbearable. In similar situations in the past, I've turned the music down (of course, no-one even notices) and screamed in a bloodcurdling fashion to create about 1 second of silence, which then allows the volume level to creep back up, slowly. It gives me at least a few moments respite before it becomes annoying again.

Actually, it's not the noise I object to most of all. It's having to shout. I hate shouting.

Anyway, on Saturday I couldn't be arsed, so I went to sit in a room on my own and watched the Eurovision Song Contest with the sound turned off. It was great.

Most of the time I suspect everyone else does that too..
