I believe that music is a big part of Christmas. The men that I live with try to be tolerant the day after Thanksgiving until New Years Day. Come New Years Day they shut me down! So, I really try and get all I can in before then. (When I cheat and listen during the forbidden time I usually get caught because I sing along.
Today they were planning on perhaps fining me for any time that I get caught during the forbidden time. I would say they best be careful with those kinds of fines. I think I could come up with a healthy list of behaviors that can come with fines.
Perhaps I should work on that, just in case I need to have it ready for New Years Day. I am open for suggestions.
