I wince when the spring summer and fall weekends come because I am an introvert living in the city. I don't want to live in the country, mind you I just wish people were considerate of people who need quieter ways of celebrating.
My solution is to walk for miles or swim laps at the local pool. No noise finds me there. Interesting people swim with headphones. They WANT sound to follow them underwater.
When I am home I run the fan to blot out the intermittent car stereo noises and firecrackers.
When the motorcycle club comes revving their engines I walk to another state.
When the guys tear engines out of their Honda's and leave them in the parking lot, I take a photo and give it to the Mayor.
