All the posts of creative hearing have me thinking of my dad who died in 2004. About 40 years ago he was talking to a young girl who was a daughter of a friend of his. He asked her what she was going to do after she graduated from High School. She announced proudly that she was going to "A Banjo College." My dad just looked a little stunned, and mumbled something about that being nice, and went to talk to someone else. It was quite unlike him, as usually he'd be interested and ask questions, etc.
On our ride home, he was talking about how this girl was going to a banjo college, and how he didn't even know she played the banjo, and what kind of an education would that be, and what would become of her. My mom and I started cracking up and explained she was going to "Evangel College." It became a much repeated family joke!
Also I've thought about how my "Bike Shop Guy" guy and I handle his hearing loss. I used to get really tired of repeating things over and over and over again, until he understood. Then he started to repeat to me what he THOUGHT I said. Usually it's not even close to what I was saying, and sometimes the words don't even exist. I have a much better understanding of how he hears. Plus it's hard to be mad when you're laughing like crazy!
