There’s a cricket chirping loudly outside my window and I have a theory on how to make it stop but I’m afraid to try if for fear that my wife will make fun of me (she is in the room with me but not aware that I’m typing this). Many of my ideas are not smart so I usually ask myself before taking an action “Will my wife laugh at me” and proceed accordingly. Everything tells me that my cricket plan is foolish but I want to try it anyway.
Here’s the plan: I think that I read somewhere that crickets will stop chirping if there is a radio on, so I’m going to try it out. I’m not sure how it works…I think the crickets will dance or at very least they sound of the radio will drown them out. Please don’t tell her why I’m about to place a radio on the windowsill.
P.S. – If you are my wife, ignore the previous paragraphs.
UPDATED – My wife informs me that we’ve been through this before and it did not work then either, she explains in the comments.
