    Okay, that earplug person seems challenged. She needs to pick up some Mack’s brand pink earplugs at Walgreens and actually follow the directions. The pink ones are a little smaller, for a woman’s ears. Other kinds I feel like are a little too big and can start to hurt.

    And then she needs to also be running a fan. There’s a little black one you can get at any store, for under $20, that makes loud and consistent white noise.

    You need both the fan and the earplugs, and some nights you need Zzz-Quil or similar.
