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…

  1. Not that I ever plan on having kids, but I don’t see anything wrong with naming children after towns in Wisconsin.

    Oshkosh! Stop pestering Eau Claire! Peshtigo, did you brush your teeth? Oh, boy, Sheboygan. Here we go, again! Racine and Kenosha, your room had better be spotless by the time I get in there!
