So I think I need to head to the nearest Walgreens or CVS for the product shown above! The answer for why I need such a random product should be evident after you read my story below!

I usually don't have trouble going to sleep with the BLARING tv one floor below me, but for some reason I just couldn't do it last night. Every night I usually fall asleep easily to the interviews that Jay Leno is conducting on the Tonight Show. I always know Jay Leno's guests without ever having to turn on my own tv. FYI: I think Charlize Theron was on last night. Most people would have a rational discussion with their neighbor about the excessive volume on their tv, but I just can't do it. The biggest reason I can't do this is that the tv belongs to my neighbor, Vivian. Ms. Vivian is an 80 year old woman with beautiful soft, white hair who drives a very sha-sha white Jaguar. She is sweet as can be, but also deaf as can be!! I think she falls asleep to the Tonight Show every night even though the volume is blaring. The most frustrating part of it all is that sometimes I will think she has gone to bed because it suddenly becomes dead silent, but then 30 seconds later the tv comes back on at full blast! I decided that her neighbor on the other side must have placed a Clapper on her tv. When they think she has fallen asleep, they clap hard and miraculously the tv turns off!! I can't take credit for this Clapper idea as I saw it in the hilarious movie Duplex. I guess Ms. Vivian will never be as bad as the little old lady in that movie!

And if for some reason Ms. Vivian reads my blog, I am sorry for any disrespect. I love your soft, white hair, and I totally want the same kind of hair when I get old!! I'm still off to buy that Clapper though!!!

When I was little my aunt gave my mom a Clapper one year for Christmas. This was back when we had our pet bird, Spike. The lights would go on and off if Spike chirped just right (which happened often).
