The other morning, my husband and I were sitting in the living room, quietly, when my husband asked “do you hear that?” Of course, being that I’m practically deaf, I don’t understand why he still asks me that, but he said “it sounds like it is coming from the remote”. You know, the ones you can “talk to” and get it to show you the channel or show you want. So, obviously it is mean to “listen”. He picked it up and held it to my ear, and I could hear it then. It was clicking. Hubby said it was Morse Code. To me, it sounded a lot like when you call someone on a landline and another person in the house on their end, picks up the other extension and listens. What is really weird, is that the night before, I had heard a breathing that I couldn’t account for. Now, imagine with me. The sound of someone on stage, say during a rehearsal. The action is paused, it’s quiet on stage, but because someone still has on the mic, you hear in the quiet, that person’s breathing. That’s what it sounded like to me. Hmm. Make of it what you will. My husband said “oh, you’re hearing the dog” but I was not even near the dog, and can’t hear well enough to pick up the sound of breathing that is 12 feet away. (Unless it’s one of those squash-faced dogs that wheeze and carry on with every breath, which ours is not.) On the other hand, I was inches from the remote.
