Did I mention that John got his hearing aids yesterday? After finishing his conversation without comment, he hung up, looked over at me and said, "So I'm rude and stupid, am I?" Boy, was I surprised. I apologized for my mouth, but explained his options, like leaving the room or pausing the TV. He had, after all, said that I could watch whatever I wanted, and so he knew I was watching that show. Did he really think I didn't want to hear it? He then told me to just rewind it myself, which I had already done, of course.
By that time I felt about an inch high. It's definitely time to retrain my mouth.
