The background hiss remaining from the energy release of the Big Bang.
@duodec Maybe that’s a cosmic cigarette puff.
The sound of a bug zapper on the back patio.
@narfcake Good one!
@narfcake Add a sixpack and…
You just might be a redneck
The constant hum of all the AC units around the neighborhood, fighting with the heat and humidity.
@phendrick You beat me to it.
@phendrick @zinimusprime Actually the absence of the A/C units during the weeks without power after a hurricane is somehow louder. Maybe because everyone is running their generators 24/7. Know this from personal experience.
Bang! Bang! Bang!
/ Me banging my head on the wall all summer long because I missed out on the IRKs.
Do electric cicadas sleep?
@mehcuda67 The only electric cicadas I know are the ones that hit the bug zapper.
The Hum of the Cicadas
Birds, lawn mowers, kids playing. “How do you want your steak?”
Have a beer.
Frogs procreating on my swimming pool liner…oh wait that’s spring
“Crying Kids in the Yard”
the tinny din of baseball on AM radio…
The whizz and hum of a bicycle on pavement (with me pedaling).
Low thrum of a diesel engine as the neighbor sits in his truck texting at 2:30 a.m.
Joni Mitchell said it best: The Hissing of Summer Lawns
I miss cicadas. I’ve been up north for three years now.
The sound of splashing and laughter as my friends and I drunkenly attempt pool noodle jousting on unicorn floaties. Ahhhh, summer.
The orchestra of lawn mowers, weed- eaters & chainsaws mixed with the thrust of a shovel, trowel of a hoe & shower of water on freshly broken ground! Ahhh!
