Did you find out? And did you try either one?So it is windy and chilly this morning and I have so many “porridge” options. I went for some cream of wheat but it occurred to me that, in my long life, I’ve never tried grits or scrapple. I am not even sure of the ingredients.
I usually prefer all things corn (e.g. tortillas) over wheat, but I love Cream of Wheat and am ho hum for grits. The spouse, OTOH, usually prefers flour over corn meal, but likes grits and is neutral on CoW. Go figure.Not yet.
I have been told I have "dog ears". I hear too many sounds I don't want to hear. Whatever the hearing test ranges are, like 20/20 for eyes, my left ear was higher than the top range. It's not a good thing. It's very irritating. And painful sometimes.My most boring talent is that I can hear leaks in pipes in the walls. Where I live, we sometimes have pinhole leaks in the pipes which are copper. They think the pinhole leaks are from the fluoride in the water. One day I could hear a faint hissing sound in the wall. My mother and my husband couldn’t hear it at all and thought I was crazy. We went out to dinner and came home and there was water all over the floor. Now when I hear hissing, my husband cuts the Sheetrock out and finds the leak right away. I can also hear those high-pitched mosquito repellent devices that only dogs are supposed to be able to hear.
Yes, I agree. But my "dog ears" are like things that make dogs howl. I get pounding sounds deep inside my head talking on the phone. I can't turn up music I like because it feels like metal trash can lids crashing in my neck. I've been to several ENTs. They can see my eardrum, so nothing is wrong. Ha. I have deformed Eustachian tubes and something wrong with the carotid artery on the left side. I can't go to a neurologist now. It's not like I'm going to have surgery. My ear sounds like a distant car stereo base when I bend over too much or move fast. I was diagnosed with hydrocephalus in 1995, so it affects everything in that area. I haven't had an MRI since 1996. Every CT scan shows it's still there, but unchanged. Enough of this.As a hearing impaired person, I would certainly rather have the dog ears!
I was born with super straight hair, but have been getting my hair permed for years. It's amazing how many people think I've had naturally curly hair all my life.
We have sci-fi shows?I like avant-garde art but not as much as I like bad Canadian sci-fi tv shows. And I use bad as a term of love b/c the worse they are the more I enjoy them.
I can hear air leaks in pneumatic machinery. My first job after grad school was in a manufacturing plant. Once a week, the head of maintenance and one other person had to do a sweep of the manufacturing floor to identify any issues. The bosses thought I should be exempt (I was the only female), but I insisted on taking my turn. I found more air leaks in my first survey than they had found in the previous five.My most boring talent is that I can hear leaks in pipes in the walls.
