COMMENTARIES BY JANICE SCOTT-REEDER
There is nothing quite a suicidal as cooking fish for dinner in a house full of cats.
I have been facing the prospect of going deaf for some time now. At first I was a bit distraught knowing I would never hear the birds sing or my cats purr. Then I got hearing aides and discovered I hadn’t been hearing the birds for some time. Now, my hearing has worsened and I once again face that deadline looming ahead. I suck at lip reading and even if I managed to learn sign language, who else knows it? So I wondered how I would communicate and carry on a conversation with people. I can always feel my cats purr though I will miss Napoleon and Boogaboo’s singing. Music left my life a while ago when I lost large chunks in the range I can hear. It is more of an irritating cacophony now.
So, I thought about all the aspects for a while and I concluded I should look at why we talk. Put simply, it is to get an opinion across. Very few people are actually able to do anything about anything in my world and those that are, have no intention of doing anything, so what’s the point of talking? I have discovered in the past few days I can get by very easily on: yes, maybe, probably, and have a nice day. You just randomly mix them up and no one really notices. So, my resolution for the New Year is to simply stop talking about things. It is a waste of my time and other people’s. Life will be much easier if I just shut up.
