Put Your Sweet Lips A Little Closer

You have got to admit it….we are all aging, even you young whipper-snappers (not sure if any of these are reading my blog but just in case)

As hubbie is painting up a storm, he has on the Golden Oldies. I hummed along to several of the good ole tunes; had to get up from my desk to sing along to others; and finally fled into the living room to dance to Wooly Booly. And we think the music of today is strange. Ok so it IS strange but a different sort of strange from ‘our day’. In our day, when the composer wanted to be rebellious or make a strong statement, he or she just gurgled and bumbled an assortment of vowels and grunts but it was MUSIC to our innocent young ears! Wasn’t it?

Then when Jim Reeves started crooning, Put your sweet lips a little closer to the phone my creatively kooky mind went into gear. I no longer pictured a sweet young thing on the other end of a black dial phone; rather I saw myself plugging one ear whilst straining to hear what the caller on my cell phone was telling me. And not because of the noise of traffic but rather because I am getting a wee bit hard of hearing. Yup, I’ve admitted it. I have to turn the volume up on the TV; have to strangely tilt my head at that precise angle to capture a better audio vibe. My sweet lips are dangerously close to the phone so as to strain to hear every important tid bit of information while often pulling away before I burst forth an expletive of some sort when the caller mumbles! OMG! Just now I received a call from somewhere east of Timbuctoo (my spell checker has no flippin idea if that is correct) and I found myself snapping at the guy, because he insisted on making it impossible for me to hear! THE NERVE!

So, where was I? Oh yeah, now he totally made me lose track of the brilliant idea I had to share with you. DARN IT…………do you find that too? Everyone else is to blame for your disruptive thoughts? and forgetting things…..well, if they hadn’t…..blah….blah……

  1. This is why we get married. Don’t you find spouses are the worst offenders when it comes to mumbling? That’s what Hubby tells me, anyway…

    A good marriage is all about give and take. Give blame, take credit. 🙂

  2. Actually I think my hubbie is WHY my hearing isn’t so great. Hey, blame it on the ones you love. He speaks louder than the average. AND he loves his music loud.
    But if that’s all I have to worry about being married to such a terrific guy (he does read my blog, ya know), then it is all worth it. 🙂

  3. Kids think we are so out of it too. This evening my 10 year old granddaughter was playing a new game on my IPad that I had downloaded for her. I told her it was really hard to find the hidden objects. She said, “Oh Grandma, that’s because you are so old” She was teasing but I know deep down she really thinks that. ha ha ha I remember at that age anything past 60 was ancient.
    Love those kids.

    • Yes I agree IT, but here in Bermuda the radio stations sometimes play the Oldies but they are so NOT the golden oldies…..they choose music from the 30’s and 40’s. That just plain is ancient……ha ha ha
      Anyway thanks for your comments. I enjoy your blog very much too.
