What's Louder Than a Jack-Hammer?
The machine used to tamp down dirt in the trench.
The Plumbing Troubles are in their closing days, folks, as the workers are currently moving the dirt from The Pyramids in the Backyard, wheelbarrow by wheelbarrow and shovel by shovel, back to its home. The noise from The Machine that Compacts the Dirt is astoundingly loud, even as I sit here typing. Every bit of me is jiggling, and I can only hope I'll lose weight if I sit here long enough. God forbid I should actually wield a shovel or push a wheelbarrow myself.
