Today is Day 10 of #HAWMC (WEGO’s Health Activist Writers Monthly Challenge). The prompt today is:
Yahoo Answers Post – Pretend you are writing a question about your condition – it can be as silly or humorous as you want. Now answer it. (Remember: Your answer can be just as silly)
I can’t really think of questions like this, so I thought I’d list a couple of questions put to me that I think are a bit silly, let’s see what you think.
(mouthing words to me) “Can you read my lips?” I always think, “Is this some kind of game you play with deaf people?”
This from someone who knew I lost my hearing 3 years earlier. “If you can’t hear how can you speak so well?” What did I forget how to speak? Really, I had to laugh!
Now I just thought I’d share something that I misheard that we still laugh about.
Hubby and I were riding in a car and saw a sign on a church about Easter and Jesus Christ. I suddenly couldn’t remember things about Jesus and asked what he was other than the son of God. Stuart answered, but what I heard was: “Jesus was Jimmy Buffett”. I lost it. “What?” “Jesus was Jimmy Buffett???” I’m dying laughing and Stuart is trying to tell me that what he really said was that “Jesus was a Jewish Carpenter”. To this day in our house, Jesus is Jimmy Buffett. (please do not take this literally)
