This week's burning question…
Wednesday, November 12th, 2008

Okay, I’m not asking you to change the world or anything, just give us a hint about your unique personality!

If you were completely deaf but were somehow able to hear for one hour each month, what would you most often want to hear in that hour?

For me, it would be the four-year-old’s recantation of what had happened to her in pre-school that day. Just hearing what she got “time out” for and the way she tries to spin it so it wasn’t her fault makes me smile. That child is a natural storyteller. Your turn!

    1) A laughing child
    2) A cat purring

    Nice, Valerie! A cat’s purr is one of the most sensual and comforting sounds I can imagine. And a laughing child puts me in a happy place.

    For me, besides hearing my kids, it would be our church bells on Sunday morning. The sound of them always brings me back to when I was little and we would spend all Sunday afternoon having fun with my grandparents after Mass was over. Those are some of my most treasured memories!

    Cheryl!
    Anything that reminds us good times when we were young. I like the chime of bells too. Thanks for giving us another sound.

    To hear my husband whisper that he loves me, to hear my son laughing and playing on the soccer field and to listen to my daughter read her favourite book, Sweet Dream Pie!

    My nieces and nephews, especially my youngest niece telling me that I call her my ‘Tiny’. I absolutely love hearing her say that. She even told my boss’s boss’s boss that she was my Tiny when we ran into him while trick-or-treating at my work on Halloween.

    We’re all such girls!! Children’s voices coming first. I’m surprised no one said music, because I know i’d be dying to hear some rock ‘n’ roll, too!

    I’m with everyone with my kids’ voices. My youngest even though he’s 2 1/2 has just decided to say “Mommy”. So sweet. Then probably the horrible come-on lines from hubby. After that the sound of rain hitting the roof of my house.

    Yep, my family’s voices–my children telling me their important stuff and laughing, my husband’s reassurances, my sister’s support and gossip ;)

    For me it would be music.
