Noisy Neighbors and Rotten Tomatoes

As I sit here at 10:44 PM on a Wednesday night listening to my neighbor's noisy party complete with norteño music pumped up to the max, I realize it could be worse.  It could have been one of their karaoke parties with norteño music pumped up to the max while they sing loudly off-key.  I swear one night in the recent past I was picking fruits and vegetables out of my refrigerator so I could start launching missiles from my bedroom window.  That's no joke, folks.  Don't these people realize I have to get up at 5:30 AM?  Do these people care?  Am I asking retarded rhetorical questions? Their parties usually start after 10 PM and can go on until 3 in the morning.

Paybacks can be hell.  Other revenge plots have crossed my mind.  What would they think of loud Czech polka music blaring from my bedroom window at 5:30 AM?  Nah, not a good idea. It sounds too much like norteño music so they'd probably like it. Seriously, folks, the so-called Mexican music with the accordion is not really Mexican at all.  It came from the German and Czech immigrants to northern Mexico.  And the Mexicans have the nerve to brand it as their own!  If you don't believe me, google it.

Anyway, I thought I finally got my revenge last Saturday night at my patio party.  After a couple or ten rounds of tequila (who's counting?) the final encore of the night was a very loud and off-key sing-along with Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody around 2 AM. That oughta fix those noisy neighbors except now my throat hurts and my voice is hoarse. And they are back to partying again. Who got the last laugh?  Not me, I guess, but I've an assortment of tomatoes and oranges ready to be launched.


  1. My neighbors across the street used to have karaoke parties every Saturday night... or should I say Sunday morning? The godawful singing would begin around 2 am and end around 7 or 8 am. Since my bedroom is in the back of the house, it wasn't a big issue, but it sure was hilarious to listen to.

    They moved out about 2 months ago. Maybe they moved to your town???

  2. It was about 2 months ago the karaoke parties started. You should take 'em back.

  3. I miss Mexico so much! It seems we should probably switch cities! I was born and raised in Mexico... born in Monterrey, N.L. and lived most of my life in Matamoros, Tamps. of course I love Monterrey... Matamoros is not where I would live If I moved back! I am married to a "gringo" who .. thank God appreciates my background and culture... I am writing our love story and how we met in my "You are bread and I am Tortilla" Blog... I hope I'll see you there soon! :)
