his sense of humor

Today I was leaving my house, running late to meet a friend for breakfast, and my neighbor waylaid me. I hadn't seen him since I'd complained that his house painters were driving me to the brink of homicide by blasting easy listening music all day.

My neighbor called me over. "They're done, they're all gone." Then he burst out laughing. "That music... It was the BeeGees! And it was so distorted!" He laughed and laughed, shaking his head and saying, "I didn't realize how loud it was." His hilarity grew greater. Pointing at me, he said through the guffaws, "And they had the radio out front, and it was at an angle, and IT WAS POINTED RIGHT AT YOUR HOUSE!" His laughter didn't allow him to speak more for some time.
