Say What? "The shirt is loud"

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.

Alex - I said it to a deaf friend and he thought I said "The street is allowed". That was funny too.

LOL... That was to hilarious. I couldn't read someone's lips to save my life. So good for her!

DCHY said...

Shelle - hehe, I won't ask you to lipread for me then. Hehe

I'm with Shelle, I can't lip read either. Have wanted to on many occasions though.

Vodka Logic - why don't you (and Shelle too) try it on your spouse? You can give me amusing anecdotes when you try it. LOL
