Maybe it would not have been too loud if he had played music I like. He was in a Country & Western phase at the time.

FWIW, I knew Himself from when I was 14. Never dated him until I was 22. His sis and I were best friends from sophomore year of high school until forever. But he had a girl and was in college. All he was to me was my best friend's older brother. Someone to drive her over to my house and then drive us to the school dance. When he moved back to Cleveland in 1973 he moved in with his friend who still lived across the street from Himself's old home. When his sis and BIL, and his roommate and HIS fiance were going out they said he should get a date and it could be a triple-date. He asked me because 1) I wasn't dating anyone seriously at the time and 2) I was the only single girl left in Cleveland that he knew. The others had moved or married.

The six of us went out to a nice dinner, then a dance club, then IHOP because we were hungry, and then back to his sis and BIL's apartment. Shortly after we got there, the phone rang. At about 5:00AM. It was...my Mom! Guess she liked Himself since we still dated - and married later that year!

Shrek's Mom was my Mom's boss at the hospital at one time, so they knew and liked each other. When Mom would got to Laramie, WY to visit my sister she would stay with MIL. I shudder to think what they talked about. MIL always said she got two daughters when Shrek and I married. I loved her dearly, a warm and wonderful person...in stark contrast to my first MIL.

Yes, the whole "ex" part of my life was miserable. I got really lucky the second time around.
