It's Like that Song Jam On It that I Used to Think Was Jamboney and Which Has Nothing to Do with This Post

Did I ever tell you how B hates it when I hear him incorrectly and then ask him why he would say such a thing? Perhaps it is because when I hear something wrong, it is REALLY wrong. As in it makes absolutely no sense. Yet I will swear that is what was said. This gets B in a tizzy. B in a tizzy can be a funny thing.

So, imagine my surprise when the tables were turned. At first I thought B could not spell. Turns out he was suffering from some Dani-fied hearing:

Me: I think the dog is looking for her b-o-n-e.
B: What?
Me: Her b-o-n-e.
B: What is that?
Me: Huh? What?
B: What is that?
Me: Um, a BONE.
Me: Maybe I should start spelling things I don't want YOU to hear. Goodness.

Fast forward a couple of days when I bring that conversation up:

Me: Remember when you couldn't spell bone? Good times.
B: When could I not spell bone?
Me: Um, when I said Jersey was looking for her b-o-n-e and you had NO clue what I was talking about.
B: Oh, that is because I thought you said boney {note rhymes with Monet or Lisa Bonet}
Me: What? What the hell is a boney?
B: I don't know.
Me: That doesn't even make any sense.
B: Well that's what I heard.

Well, well, well. I guess we are all crazy round these parts.

As if that was in dispute.

*Tell me you didn't just start seeking Jam On It but it really sounded like you were singing "Jamoney" or "Jamboney."

**I am singing it and it is disturbing Jersey's sleep. I think she secretly likes it though. Or else she wants her b-o-n-e.

haha that is too funny. i always mishear matt, i have horrible hearing sometimes it's just bad but definitely makes for entertaining discussion.

katelin - well, at least I am not alone. Does Matt get just as frustrated?

Jennifer said...

Wow. I feel like that is a conversation B and I could have. I am so dumb sometimes and he only 1/2 listens, so are quite a match.

Jennifer - sometimes I feel like B only 25% listens and I only 75% listen. That makes 100% and makes us perfect, right?
