I guess that is what marriage does to those of us who last...it wears us down. In our case, we are worn down with laughter.
I bought a new set of earbuds for my iPhone today. The others I had still work, but they are on borrowed time. I jerked them off my head in a hurry the other morning when Stevie Wonder let Gabe in so I could do a butt check on him. (You remember that anal abscess I mentioned way back? Well, he is on the second surgery for the same thing, and if it happens again...I am going to do the surgery myself and save $200. Heck, I have had to stick my finger in his butt to check the dang thing anyway...why not do the surgery and save the money?)
I got up as I pulled the earbuds off and threw them on the desk. I didn't notice one bud land in my cup of tea. Until I went to put them on several minutes later, and by then it had been marinating for several minutes in my hot tea. A one ear earbud isn't good at all. It makes you dizzy and off balance. A perfect excuse to buy a new set.
Today we hunted all over Best Buy for a set...after I had taken my Samsung hard drive to the service counter to see about having my photos retrieved off of it. (That's another story.) I found some earbuds, and Stevie Wonder purchased them while I stood waiting and making funny faces at his back.
I put them on in the truck. I said:
"say something so I can find out if I hear noise with these on"
Stevie Wonder said:
That is right, he was being his normal idiot self and just mouthing at me.
I can't hear a word you are saying. Good. Now we are both deaf and don't have to listen to each other.
Stevie had nothing else to say. I think. Because if he did, I couldn't hear him.
