People Who Really Piss TBL Off, list entry #34:
People who think it's funny to set off &%*#! firecrackers on a residential street at midnight on a weeknight.
And again at 1:40 a.m.
Also at 3:15.
And finally at 4:30.
There are times, darling readers, when TBL finds it very difficult to remember that she is a pacifist. A solid majority of those occur between bedtime and dawn. (Most of the rest involve the Yankees or the Whine Sox.)
