sometimes, i look out my back window and i see this:
and i have mixed feelings. if i were having a quiet night, the music and the sounds of kids' laughter and the smell of the barbecue would make me so upset. i would scoff at their fun and wish for their quiet.
but when i have friends over, and i can show them this fun addition, and the noise from their party just adds to the ambiance of ours, then i feel happy. and i'm glad there's other happy people out there having fun on a saturday evening.
