first just let me say that i am actually a bit deaf in one ear. I had a really bad ear infection when i was about 13 and it did something to the ear drum so i do sometimes have trouble hearing when im in a noisy area or if someone is behind me when their talking.
second let me say that i have 3 brothers, a sister, a step sister and a step brother and if you dont want to be put in a mental institiution you learn very early in life how to tune out things. so i have very good selective hearing!
but what i can actually hear right now is mainly Jira watching tv in the bedroom next to my computer room. i cant actually hear him but i know hes there. He's watching that show "Bones".
Outside i can hear one of my dogs walking around on the deck outside my window. just the occassional thud or thunk to remind me that they are still there. A car is revving its engine out the front. Must have a pretty big exhaust for me to hear it here in the back of the house. And finally i can hear me tapping away at the keys and the computer quietly humming in the background.
