Sitting reading a few blogs, catching up with news & laughs, music playing softly on the compter for background ambience. ( Martha Wainwright- new Chrissy music gift)
Sudden onslaught of LOUD noise! Voices! Television c***p!
Venturing forth from the computer's comforting prescence.
"GOM what are you doing Love?"
GOM looking sheepish, lowering his body into the seat, no answer. An odd 'look'- can a look have a 'tone'??
Meggie, gently, " I dont think the neighbours want to listen to our TV. It is deafening! Lovey, let's turn it down a bit?"
Meggie lowering the volume by many degrees.
Sheepish looks & further 'cringeing' body language.
Meggie suddenly noticing the absence of hearing aids in ear cavities.
"Where are your hearing aids?"
Even more sheepish look..."I thought I would give my ears a rest"
What??!! So you could deafen me??
But I refrain from making that smart-arse comeback.. it is New Year's day after all... let us start as we mean to continue....
"Well it wouldnt seem to me to be 'resting them' with full volume?"
And, also gently, "What about my nerves, ...the shattered 'peace'?"
Sheepish look, foolish grin. Gotta love him -the dear old GOM!
