Deciphering Penguin Screams Like A Damn Fool

me: how was your ride?
the husband: I got to potty-train. . .
me: ???
me: . . . . you have to potty-train? Huh? *what if this weren't a hypothetical question*
the husband: I got to potty-train. . .
me: you have to potty-train? Whut. . . . ? *[blink, blink] if confusion is the first step to knowledge, I must be a genius* (Larry Leissner)
the husband: I! Got! Stuck! By! A! Train!
me: oh.
the husband: yeah. You and your bad hearing.

Um. No. He got stuck by train.

Are the musicals getting to the functioning part of your brain?

Oh, okay, that makes more sense. I was reading on my phone (which is why I'm anon), whilst at a concert, and had had a couple of drinks. Totally sympathise on the hearing loss, mine is shot too. I think it's all the loud concerts you dragged me to.

too funny! glad he doesn't have to potty train. I can't imagine having to potty train an adult husband. lol

Seriously. I'll be deaf by the time I'm 40. Mark my words: 4-years from now, I'll be using some ancient trumpet style hearing aid while being a member of the League for the Hard of Hearing.

Shhh. Don't tell the husband as he'd sign me up now.

Maybe your hearing is excellent and your husband is a MUMBLER!

Jay: Wow! I am honored you viewed my blog and even left a comment! And, a comment that is actually correct, 'cos the husband does mumble! A lot! But I also don't hear too well so I suppose we are a couple to be heard now and again. If anything, it is comical.

If you haven't already done so, Jay has a cool couple of websites though not to be confused with the greatest website ever. She's inspired me a few times, especially with my "Happy Hour" segments! . . . . go get some "read" on - you won't regret it!
