Nothing like waking up to a domestic dispute

My bedroom is on the second floor and there’s a balcony that goes right out from my room. 

On nights when the weather is nice, I love sleeping with the balcony door open because the breeze feels good through the screen door. 

The downside of course, is that I hear everything that transpires outside.

At roughly 2am last night, I woke to the sound of a man and a woman fighting.  They were actually in their house, maybe a hundred yards  away, on the other side of several vacant lots. 

They were so loud it sounded like we were all in the same room. 

I could make out every vulgar and vile thing they said to each other. 

It lasted about 45 minutes before they at least quieted down enough that I could fall back asleep. 

Have I mentioned how much I hate my neighborhood?
