What the octogenarian who lives two doors down is saying right now

"That's an interception, asshole."
"My team has the ball now."
"Go back to Texas, you fuckers."
A problem with living in the land of eternal summer is that people keep their doors and windows open all the time. A problem with having a slightly off and elderly neighbor—besides being asked to unclog her toilet on occasion and sometimes being talked about as if my partner and I were metaphysically indistinct—is that she yells on the telephone and to her television and I get to hear it all.
