dievca lives in an older building (late 1920’s) with cinder block walls. she’s not too worried about noise because her neighbors have minimal wall contact and she hasn’t heard anything above or below her.
Master’s building is about the same age…but for some reason you can hear a bit more~ It’s not that His space is larger – His bedroom doesn’t share a wall with neighbors. It’s the floor.
Either His neighbors clomp around or you can hear more easily…
It doesn’t help that they are a bit….uptight and there may be some, ummm, physical issues.
They travel quite a bit, so most of the time Master doesn’t care about sound carrying. Once in a while, He does make an effort…usually after we forget and a “pointed” comment was made by the lady. That’s when the ball gag comes out.
Do you rouse the neighbors or do they rouse you?
