I’ve always wondered how bad a snorer I am. I’m overweight and a mouth breather – I figure it’s inevitable I snore. Whenever I ask people, they are usually too polite to say, “you snore like a freight train.” Since I have a lot of problem getting to sleep at night, I’m very sensitive to the snoring of others and bitch about it constantly. This has gotten me a lot of dirty looks and I figure it’s because people are thinking, “pot? Meet kettle.” So, last night I decided to find out just how bad things are…

I have a little digital recorder that I can set to record only when it hears something. I put it in “voice activation” mode and put it beside my bed last night. The recording goes something like this:

“Mishka! Stop it!”
“What’s going on in there? Stop it now”
Meow? Meow? Meow? Meow?
“Shut up”
“Ow! No biting!”
Meow? Meow? Meow? Meow?

Followed by hours of god-awful snoring until the drive filled up. Oye. How does anyone manage to sleep in the same room I do?
