Deaf Date

I've had plenty of blind dates, but this was my very first "deaf date." I was supposed to go out with this kid a week ago, but that was when I first lost my voice, so we postponed it. Then I found out about my mandatory three-week vow of silence, but I felt bad to cancel again, so I still went. I took my little pad of paper and just wrote everything. He was a good sport about it, and I think it was a good thing for me because then I didn't keep rambling on and I'm doing now. :-) So, I'm not really interested in the guy. But he's nice and it was fun. And the waitress at California Pizza Kitchen was super nice to me because she thought I was deaf. Hahaha.

Of course, the whole date paled in comparison to last night's pinochle game. ;-) Hahaha. Nick and I actually won! That doesn't happen...and probably will never happen again. It almost made up for Nick mocking me all night. Almost. Oh! And Mel taught me how to make the computer at work talk for me. Maybe I won't have to cheat during my lessons anymore. Here's hoping.

You know, this whole silence thing has given me a new respect for this scene:

Ariel and I have a lot in common...minus the red hair and fins and tiny waist and seashell bra. (Minor, insignificant details.) Okay, so we don't have much in common. It's still a good scene, and it's nice to know that she got her voice back in the end. Not to mention she got a hunka, hunka burnin' love to go with it.

Wow. I'm tired. Time for sleep!

Moral of the Story: Having a handicap isn't all bad, I suppose. ;-)
