Or If I went deaf today.

 

Steph was in the other room while I was in the office nursing a sore back.

 

I heard a bang. Then a small clank. Followed by another bang. I called out and asked her what she was going and she said,” hapojuhjdING alkshfdaS.” BANG. Clink.

 

I asked, “Flashing brands?” (Maybe some new fad?)

 

“ No, aljkhdyhasING ikjhdasS” BANG. Clink.

 

“Ummmm, Brushing Chads?” (Why not a few years ago hanging, pregnant and dimpled chads were all the rage.)

 

“No, lskdfayING kjdfghaS” BANG. Clink.

 

“Washing your hands?” (I was picturing her washing her hands with a sledge hammer.)

 

“No, akjhdfnING chaywenyas.” BANG. Clink.

 

So I gave up.BANG. Clink.BANG. Clink.BANG. Clink.BANG. Clink. BANG. Clink.

I finally called her in the office.

 

“What are you doing?” (Evidently by placing them on the floor and stomping them.)

 

“Crushing cans.”

 

“Huh?”

 

“Well, you had too many beer cans to fit in the can can (the can we put empty aluminum cans in) and I didn't feel like going outside to empty it.”

So THAT's what the kids are all calling it these days...



J/K Willie, I suffer from a lot of hearing loss too and feel your pain. It is so much better now that I am regulating my Caffeine intake.

My wife hates when I play the 'guess what she just said' game. But she still attempts to tell me things as she walks away or is in another room.

My wife will yell across the house and this is what I hear "adf werde arghera argd aredg"  I shrug my shoulders and continue watching TV.

 

Then about an hour later, why didn't you come help me?!  I didn't understand you...

My favorite response:

 

'What's that? You're moving back into the zoo?'

I'm glad to hear that other couples have the same problem.  I thought we were just getting old.

The discussion we have most frequently is when I ask her what she said and she says something completely different.

 

Her "Today while I was at Wal-mart I saw this woman with big alsdhflakjdfn aa....."

"Big what?"

"Well you know how when a person,"

Me inturrupting her, " I didn't ask for a whole new story. I asked 'big what?'."

"Ears"

My wife is bad about going off on a tangent when I ask for clarification of something she said.  Usually I'm just asking because I didn't hear one or two words.  Instead, as you said, I get some whole new story and still haven't gotten confirmation of the two words she used.  I just assume the two words she used were "spend money" and say "No, we can't do that."

Mine waits until I clear the threshold and then says something.
