The man up stairs...or maybe downstairs

I like living alone. I like sleeping alone too. Yeah some times I miss having a warm body to snuggle up to but my cat Aurora (kind of) fills that roll. Lately though, it feels as if I have someone sleeping with me. Every night for the past 6 months or so I do my nightly routine. I turn out the lights, lay down, fold myself and the covers together like a piece of origami, Aurora jumps on the bed and makes herself comfortable in one of the origami folds close to my body. I shut my eyes and try to sleep. Then, out of nowhere, I hear it...Snoring...loud earth shaking nasal snores. I'll admit, I am a light sleeper...a VERY light sleeper. Ticking clocks can keep me up, but this is ridiculous! I live in an older, middle level apartment. It's not fancy, but the rent is affordable and it's in a good neighborhood. I can't be 100% sure, but I think it is the man who lives below me, but just to be safe I am purchasing Breath Right strips for all my neighbors and signing the card anonymous. I was going to wait until Christmas, but this is getting out of hand. Do you think Hallmark makes a Happy Day After the 1st Day of Fall card?

If they don't make that card, you should definitely suggest it. You know, since they don't already HAVE ENOUGH insignificant holidays to capitalize on!

Considering I had a very similar problem, though mine had groaning, moaning and banging, I think an anonymous letter is the way to go. Since leaving my little note with the downstairs neighbor I have not heard one word: no loud music, no snoring and certainly no groaning, moaning or banging!
