most of the time, Wen and I sleep in separate rooms. But tonight, as I was winding down to go to sleep, I felt an inexplicable urge to go sleep with her instead of in my own room. This was around 10:20. I'd gotten into bed with her, and we'd both settled down to go to sleep. Around 10:35, the noise in the hallway picked up, and then all of a sudden there was a TON of shouting. From what we were able to determine, there was a police raid on several of the apartments in our building. It was all very exciting, and rather noisy (as one might guess having seen occasional snippets of police shows). One difference between actual and fictional police raids is that in an *actual* raid, it seems that most of the cops will stand around in one's front yard, discussing things like baseball. But others will have discussions with one's neighbors in the hallways. Sadly for my nosy, gossipy self, although they were noisy, they weren't using their "drama voices," so we couldn't work out most of what they said.
Snippets that we *did* overhear:
(One neighbor to another, I think): "Viagra?!?! You're young. Why do you need VIAGRA?"
(The final words from the cops, one of them clearly putting his high school Spanish class to good use): "Vamanos a la playa!"
In the midst of the excitement, when they were searching our back yard, Wen had the back door open and was asking them what was going on, and one of the cats escaped. She high tailed it for the open door to the basement (which they were also searching), so I was out back, with cops digging holes in the yard, trying to coax the cat back into the apartment without me going into the basement. (She's safely home, along with the other two.)
So that was tonight's excitement. I'm hoping that this means things will be quieter around here. i feel a little guilty about hoping for that, but then, it's not like I was the one who called the cops, or, for that matter, chose to deal drugs. I just hope they don't think it was me or Wen who called.
