Can you hear me NOW???
Here's a typical conversation which happened today - note: Gertie's hearing is not what it used to be. In fact, put succinctly, it sucks...
Let me set the scene:
I walk into the livingroom with breakfast #2 for Gert (it's 11 and she's a bit off her feed. She's usually chowing down on breakfast #3 by now). Regardless, I digressed...
So, the news is blaring in the livingroom but, you probably know that as you probably heard it too. Loud enough to rattle my back teeth. We were asked by National Airport to turn it down as it was interfering with their communication with the planes....
Anyway, the newscast about the Bronx zoo's lost snake is on and I catch just the end.
Lori: Mom, did they say the snake is still loose?
Gert: What goose?
Lori: Snake. SNake. SNAke. SNAKe. SNAKE!!!! IS IT STILL LOOSE?
Gert: There's two snakes loose?! Where are they??
Lori: WELL, IF I KNEW THAT THEY WOULDN'T BE LOOSE?
Gert: Two loose?
Lori: Sighs. Yes, two loose...
