Listening to Tendonitis


Percy:  Hey, Merci, what are you staring at?

Merci:  I'm not staring.  I'm listening to my tendonitis.

Percy:  I didn't know tendonitis could talk.  Does it sing too?

Merci:  Not on key.  It's an annoying buzzing and humming and screeching in my ears.

Percy:  Oh, if it's in your ears you mean tinnitus. Wait!  I thought you don't hear very well any more?

Merci:  I don't but I can certainly hear this.  It's giving me a headache.

Percy:  How long have you had this problem?

Merci  I don't know.  Perhaps five minutes or so.  I wish the racket would go away.

Percy:   You've only had this problem for about the last five minutes?

Merci:  Yes.

Percy:  You don't have tinnitus. You have janitis.

Merci:  That's not fatal, is it?

Percy:  If it is, we'll all go to the bridge together.  The buzzing, humming and screeching noise you've been hearing is Jan ... um, singing.  Loudly!  I think she's practicing for a caterwauling contest.

Merci:  Well, I wish she would practice somewhere else! 

Percy:   Try to imagine what it's like for those of us who aren't hearing-impaired.

Merci:  Do you know where Jan keeps the earplugs?

Percy:  I don't think she has any.

Merci:  Then let's go find Buddy.  He can reach the bag of cotton balls.

  16. Do you hear what I hear? Hey, with my Dad's knees making noise he sounds like 3=1/2 humans going up and down the stairs!

  17. My tinnitus just sounds like the buzz of summer insects . It's great - I don't need a white noise generator to sleep. Tendinitis, on the other hand - I've had that too, and it doesn't sing - it SCREAMS !

  19. You guys are hysterical! Good for Jan, practicing like that! They say practice makes perfect, but until then, we hope Buddy really can reach those cotton balls.;)

  20. Our sympathies. We try to discourage TBT from singing. It seems to sound better in his head than in ours.

  21. Yep. My Momma's "singing" and "dancing" could destroy two of your five senses!
