One night I was laying in bed. I was furious because my neighbor’s incessant whistling was keeping me up! Only after about 15 minutes did I realize that it was my nose whistling, not my neighbor. I was so guilty afterwards for blaming the neighbor for something that they didn’t do that I didn’t fall asleep for another 30-45 minutes.
Know that too. Meanwhile, I alter the frequency of my breath just to see whether it is something in my own body before listening whether a sound comes from somewhere else.
Otoh, I have several times slowed down my car for fear of a broken wheel bearing, only to notice that the revolving frequency of my car wheels was similar to the frequency of the boom-clonk-boom-clonk music from the neighbor car.
P. S.: If you have experience with nearly losing control over your vehicle due to a broken ball bearing, that’s a really remarkable adrenaline surge.
Oh, it’s just my nose…
I don’t… have… a nose…
*dun dun DUN!!*
Or the baby snoring. Yes, that happened to me.
I had a cousin tell me how freaked out he was by passing gas loud enough to wake himself up.
