I like humming noises. More specifically, I like the right humming noise when I am trying to sleep. The whirring sound of a heater or fan. The muffled sound of a vacuum cleaner. A television with volume audible yet so low all voices and sounds blend together to form one continuous murmur. And the very best, a hair dryer... ooh, sleep orgasm. They all make me feel snug and relaxed and take my mind off thinking.
I am sure it has some deep pyschological root to sleep as a baby or some womb related hum connection. All I know is that, even in winter, I will sometimes turn on the fan, aim it away from me, and tuck myself under the donna. The only thing i know is that I have liked these sleep-assisting hums for as long as I remember. I got my mum to send me this photo
- that is me, aged ~3, sleeping against a heater.
There was also a photo where I am sleeping while mum is doing the vacuuming but instead she sent me this photo.
She thought it was funnier. Thanks mumma.
And just for good measure, she threw in a photo taken just before attending my first day of Kinder.
What a handsom, gay little man.
