cicada days 4-9

so, i wasn't in highland park saturday or sunday. monday night there was nothing new to tell. still molting, still climbing. tuesday the noise started. it sounded like a mechanical hum, a little like the hatch in lost. wednesday i didn't work. thursday when i arrived i definitely noticed the volume had been turned up. and they are flying, like drunk old men stumbling home from the tavern. they are really entertaining to watch - i just wish they'd make their appearance in the city. my mom said they haven't even reared their ugly little heads by her. very odd.
