Scene: My wife and I are doing our favorite game where I tell a story or say things to her...without voice or aid of sign language. This helps strengthen her lipreading skills because she has found that to be not only fun but useful during loud moments.
Her (discussing about which item to use for decoration): We could use this one instead of that one. What do you think?
Me: I don't know, the jury is still out.
Her (confused): The shirt is loud?
I cracked up hard at that. Took me several minutes to compose myself and try again before she finally understood what I had said. Remains our favorite lipreading blooper to date.
