Hubby Right Up In The Mix

I live real close to the university and even closer to the college kids. We are the old people on the block. I could almost be a mother to the kids who live west, north, and east of me. With that said, I know what I signed up for when I moved in to the house I currently rent. It's an "up all night, sleep all day" deal. It's nothing to see fifty college students partying it up on any given night. And I'm okay with that (for the most part).

Other than the music that thumps my walls and the throngs of people I sometimes have to wade through to get in my house, they don't bother me. Most are cool and we pay each other no mind.

Last night the college kids were really giving it a go. A bag tournament in the back and a golf game in the front. Lots of music and laughter.

Hubby went outside to check on a vehicle we own and started chatting it up with the neighbors. They graciously invited us over to join in on the fun. And we declined. Or so I thought...

I left to work during the night shift as a 9-1-1 Dispatcher. Not even an hour in, we receive a noise complaint about loud music in the same area I live. I immediately knew what was up. I bantered back and forth with the officer that the party was right next door to my house. I didn't hear anyting back, until a few minutes later when the officer relayed "tell Terra I said Hi".

I'll be a son-of-a-gun, my hubby was over at the neighbor's! And when the officers showed up, he told them to tell me hi. I'd no sooner left for work than he was headed right next door. He took them up on their invitation to join the ruckus.

What a freakin' quinkydink! I dispatch the officers to the neighbor's, and my hubby's there in the middle of it all.

I didn't know whether to laugh or throw the book of curse words at the guy I call my husband. In the end, there was no harm, no foul and the noise was quieted down. Jason didn't do anything wrong besides be a neighborly neighbor. I did advise that maybe next time he should go over to hang when they're having tea and crumpets. Just in case the cops get called again while I'm working.
