Default Things your neighbours hear:

Got a text from our great neighbours letting us know what they overheard through the open windows:

Wife (Calling down the stairs): Hey, do you have the turkey baster again?

Me (Calling back): Yes! I'm blowing my rocks off! Don't worry, I'll wash it out when I'm done!


Thank goodness they know I have a reef aquarium and are aware of some of the maintenance. Regardless, they're still laughing their butts off.
