There has been a tanker truck outside our windows since probably 9:00 this morning. I can't read the name on the side of the door, so I'm not entirely sure what these people are doing. I see a hose, though, and given that it's attached to a giant tank, I can surmise they are pumping something into or sucking something out of some receptacle underground, directly beneath my window.
The sound is loud and droning. It's also producing a lot of vibration. Not to mention it's messing up my radio's reception, leaving The Current interrupted by bursts of static. The vibrating is so bad that I can feel it in my sinuses -- and they hurt. When it stopped momentarily an hour or so ago (lunch break?), I felt like I do when I've gone to a particularly loud show at First Ave; like my ears are stuffed with cotton.
I can't concentrate. Even my teeth are starting to hurt as a part of this grander-scale headache that seems to include everything above my neck. I'm positively worthless at work today. And I had such big plans for productivity.
I wonder just what in the hell it is that they're doing.
