1. When my daughter and one of the grandkids are having a conversation and need a little privacy I can look away from them and they have privacy – all I hear is the murmur of voices.
2. If they need even more privacy because the conversation is, um, energetic, I can take my hearing aid out.
3. When my grandson is playing games on the iPod that are annoyingly loud, I can take my hearing aid out.
4. The younger generation loves texting. I love texting! Win-win!
5. I do not need to hear to crochet. 🙂
1. Talking to me from the next room makes communication impossible.
2. Yelling down the stairs is similarly pointless.
3. Talking to me when the TV is on, the X-Box is being used, and someone is listening to music on the iPod means your chance of success is very poor.
4. I am often baffled by what that potential noise is. I refer to this (mentally) as the Name That Noise Game. Yesterday night I leaned out the door, looking around to see if we were having another rainstorm. It was the shower upstairs.
5. The sounds of chewing. Do you hearing people actually get used to that? Hearing aid out.
