For some reason, when I have my contacts out and cannot see a thing all of my senses run amuck. I don’t seem to hear as well, forget my sense of smell, and food does not have the same taste. I was always under the impression if you lost one of your senses the rest of your senses would be heightened. I frightened to know what would happen if I was blind or deaf.
Last night, I was blabbing on about something and I said the words picture frame. For some reason the word frame made the brown dog hop up and look at me like it was a familiar word to her. She knows a lot of words, I mean I don’t want to brag, but she is probably the smartest dog on the planet.
I kept thinking, what word that sounds like frame does she know? Frappuccino? Frank? Frere Jacques?
I asked the hubinator and he said, “Maybe it’s F-L-O…”
And this is where my super senses take over and I suddenly am blind and deaf.
I said, “Flower? Why would she know the word flower?”
He just looked at me like I’m an idiot (I’m assuming since I couldn’t see anything two inches in front of me) and said, “NO-I said F-L-O-Y-D. Floyd! Where did you get flower?”
While he’s busy making fun of me I’m just wondering how Floyd sounds anything remotely like frame. Yes, they both start with “f” but that’s about where the similar sounds end.
I don’t think I heard the end of it until we both fell asleep. I’m sooo sorry Mr. Perfect that I turn into a catatonic person when my contacts are out.
And no, I never found a word that was even close to the word frame that she could have mistaken it for. That’s the biggest mystery in all of this I suppose. Either that or how my perfect husband puts up with someone so imperfect.
Speaking of perfection…
