Silence Will Fall

Comments (6)

There are two types of sounds that make me unreasonably irritable in a matter of seconds:

  1. Noises made by people who are eating food or drinking beverages. Slurping, licking, sipping, crunching, masticating, grinding, etc. Take your celery sticks and carrots and potato chips and chewing gum and your whole pantry to another zip code before I knife you.
  2. The sound of cats or dogs cleaning themselves with their tongues. Does Etsy sell showers for kittens yet?

I don't even like *eating* most crunchy foods because 1) my brother overreacts just as much as I do to chewing sounds and 2) I think I've started to associate crunchy foods with the anger I feel when other people eat them. Do I need therapy?

I agree completely.

When I am queen, show me this comment, and I'll promote you to some sweet position. Also, rest assured that one of the first things I'll do is find a way to bring peace to our ears, even if it means banning crunchy foods in public settings or banning crunchy foods entirely.
