I spent the day working and avoiding is a delicate balance.

The neighbor ordered a bouncy...It is parked outside my workroom. It started as white noise...a dull buzz.
Then as my distractions dropped, it came into focus of sorts.
I became more and more aware of it.
I worked as I heard squeals and jarring voices from jumping.
Then came the parent that was pretending to be a monster, chasing the children...roaring and more squealing.

Then came me mentioning a movie, a way to get out of the house.

The rain arrived shortly afterwards and the jumper fell silent,
I was thankful to Mother Nature for providing us a break from our own daydreams.

A bouncy? Ugh! I might have called the movers too. So happy that Mother Nature had mercy on you.
