You know what's a weird sound to wake up to?
Someone washing your door. Seriously. I mean, they vacuum the hallways in my apartment building everyday at 10am, which is still a bit early for me on the weekends - especially since the outlet in the hallway is on the wall directly on the other side of my headboard, so I can hear people fooling around with electrical appliances eight inches my ears. Occasionally they do come around and wash the windows, but this is the first time I've ever heard someone wash my door. I guess they didn't like my greasy little handprints all over it? I wonder how many people are going to surprise the cleaning lady by whipping open their door to investigate?
Speaking of doors, does anyone else live in an apartment that has a doorbell? I have this strange push-bell thing, like an old school doorbell my grandma might have on her house. It's not electrical, but it's loud as fuck in my little studio. I didn't even notice the button at first, because it's just a small circle on this mirrored plate that masks the eyehole, but every single delivery man insists on using it. Even when I hear him coming down the hallway and I'm expecting it, the sound still makes my skin crawl. I've thought about putting a sign out there, but I don't want to have to look at it all the time, and I'd just forget about it when I ordered food. Why can't they just knock? It's not like I'll be back in the conservatory and unable to hear him.
