Looks Like A Nail

Filed under: Personal — by teofilo @ 9:02 am

Last night was my first night in my new apartment, which is quite nice.  It’s unfurnished, and I don’t have any furniture yet, so I slept on the floor in a sleeping bag.  About 1:00 am I was awakened by what sounded like a sort of constant knocking, varying in intensity, occasionally very loud.  Especially when it was loud, it kind of sounded like someone knocking on my door.  I considered getting up and answering the door, but then I realized that it was extremely unlikely that anyone was knocking on my door at 1:00 am.  Hardly anyone even knows I’m here, and almost everyone who does lives far away.  As far as almost everyone around here knows, the apartment is still empty.  So I didn’t answer and just tried to go back to sleep.

A few minutes later, I heard a voice outside say “Uh, it’s kind of late for hammering.”  The voice went on to explain that he was staying with his girlfriend, who apparently lives in the building, and that the hammering was keeping them up.  I never heard the phantom hammerer say a thing, but the hammering stopped.



  1. New Jersey, right? I grew up on DeLorenzo’s Pizza, and after sampling great pies in New York, New Haven, Italy, etc. etc., I still call it best.

    They opened a new location in Robbinsville that shouldn’t be too hard for you to get to. I haven’t been there yet; the Hudson street location with no menu, no bathroom, and seating for about 40 is reportedly still open, though, bizzarely, it is not even mentioned on their website. So I’d go to Robbinsville and ask what the story is with Hudson Street.

    The DeLorenzo’s on Hamilton Street in Trenton is also very good, but run by a cousin & not the same.

  2. Yeah, New Jersey. That DeLorenzo’s looks interesting, but there are so many pizza places within a short walk of my apartment that I haven’t really branched that far out yet.
