Volume Control – (Six Sentence Story)
I have radar ears … I’m not saying they are big or anything but Dumbo was my middle name!
How I wish I could have a volume control on my hearing – maybe some special buttons to moderate bass and treble too – that way boyfriend can listen to his punk as loud as he likes without my having to put my ear defenders on … it’s not an attractive look!
I have sensitive hearing; brilliant for listening in on a whispered conversation by your parents about Christmas presents ideas; terrible if it’s the people two rows behind you in a conference you’ve really been looking forward to. You know how loud a whisper can travel even if you have normal hearing?
Perhaps I could have a selective mute button – the opposite of selective hearing; that way I could switch off the ticking clock at night time, or those who chew gum in my presence? I could tone down the loud belligerent bickering that upsets me and with a pair of google glasses, I could just read the subtitles. Come on you tech guys … that’d be so good.
