Oh, that's a funny one. Hate those black
guys on the road.
We also have a leafy green area, some drive
east of me, folks talk about Lawn Guyland.
That, and New Yak Sitty, where the animals

I can identify! My hearing loss means that I can't hear the beginnings
and endings of many words. I may be able to hear a portion of the word
and then unconsciously read the persons lips and fill in the blanks and
understand most of what is being said, but there's been times I quoted
back to someone what I thought they said and it was so far from what
they actually said that we both just had to have a good laugh over it.
Getting older you can use it to your advantage, telling folks that your
hearing, memory and vision aren't what they used to be and they will
have to repeat something or help you.
The same mistakes can happen when you are much younger but then you have
no good excuse.
My hearing loss happened when I was a teenager, but I didn't know I'd
lost any hearing at all. I thought what I was hearing was normal, so
all the years following the loss (the dr. told me) my brain compensated
for the loss by filling in the blanks of words in sentences because I
could still hear parts of the words and just "remembered" what they
sounded like. So, fast forward to about 5 years ago when I had a
routine hearing test, my Dr. told me that there are people who have
selective hearing loss, people who just have minor issues with their
hearing, and then there's ME. I was told I had profound to severe
hearing loss and needed hearing aids in both ears.
When I don't wear them the world is relatively quiet. I can hear sounds
and peoples voices, but if the people aren't looking at me or in another
room I can't really understand what they are saying. When I do wear the
hearing aids they turn up all sound, and the sound ranges I've lost are
turned up even higher, so that I can hear everything, but everything is
loud, including all ambient background noise. It just so happens that a
majority of men's voices, and some women's voice fall within the same
tone range as background noise. That means I actually have to be able
to read those people lips and combine what I think is the sound from
their spoken words and pick those sounds out from amongst all the
background noise. It's an adventure for sure!
