art imitates life which imitates teevee

Admittedly, I have poor hearing. It’s genetic and no, I haven’t been to any concerts lately.

On any given day I say “what?” at least 30 times.

In all honesty, I ask for a repeat when people say outrageous things, and typically the shouted response is what I first heard.

But what does one who is hard of hearing say when everyone is calling a girl “Labia” — if you know please advise.

Moxie:
I’m sorry, come again? I couldn’t hear you

Someone:
I’d like you to meet Labia.

Moxie:
Dabia?

Someone:
Layla.

Moxie:
Libra?

Someone:
LAY-BEE-YA

Moxie:
You’re kidding

Someone:
What? No. LAAAAAAAY BEEEE YAh

Moxie:
A woman? Named Labia?

Someone:
No, not labia, lay be YAH

Moxie:
I’m sorry, I can’t hear you. Or maybe I don’t want to hear you. What were her parent’s thinking?

Someone:
Labia. You’ll love her, she’s very cool.

Moxie:
God, I hope everyone loves her with a name like that.

Any yahoo, it reminded me of the Mulva episode on Seinfeld.

Again, I’m not smart enough to make this stuff up. I only wish I were…
