Either way……

Hearing loss runs in Romeo’s family.

It is time to see how deeply the “gene pool” runs through Romeos veins.

We are scheduling a hearing test.

I will have many questions.

Is it possible to only be tone deaf to a certain “pitch” of voice but still hear your favorite college football team score called out at a whisper from twenty miles away?

And I figure that even if we get the great news that the “hearing loss gene pool” didn’t flow through Romeo’s veins as we think it may…..

It’s won’t be the best of news either way for this man.

Because if hearing loss is minimal……

He will have some serious ‘splaining to do.

And trust me……

You guys will hear all about it.

    Seriously do our husbands know each other?
    Do they have secret “husband rules” blogs to pass this critical info on to others?
    You know it used to be done in the Barber shop!
    I have to go my husband is yelling in the back door because he is to dirty (lazy) to walk up stairs and tell me what he wants. If I yell the answer to him he won’t be able to HEAR me! So I have to get up from my important commenting and GO tell him.
    BYE, Becky ;~)

    Hmmm, how odd!!! My husband also is able to hear football scores but always doesn’t hear me asking him to take out the trash…perhaps he and Romeo are related????

    love that! I think it may be true of ALL male genetic make up that they develop a hearing loss gene specifically mutated to disclude the exact tone of their selected mate, while at the same time it increases the ability to hear all non-essential (to us) sounds. 😉

    Even though my husband has a PhD in Speech Pathology and Audiology, he still won’t go for the correction of his hearing. He has a high frequency loss (which is about the range of females voices, I surmise). Oh, and I might add, he hears everything to do with sports (no matter what the volume) and remarkably blocks out tones he “chooses” not to hear. He’s always very pleasant while “not hearing” and smiles a lot. I have a feeling he’s also daydreaming of things he doesn’t mention, but that allow him great distractions from the mundane. Pretty much the same old story about men will always be boys and therefore the hearing loss is immaterial because the behavior remains the same either way!!
