On Friday evening, my wife and I were sitting outside, having a splendid braai – lovely windless evening – Fully relaxed – quiet little drinkies – dogs just laying about enjoying the company.
I was prattling on about the weeks goings on about nothing in particular – Just chatting. When suddenly on a small question, I got no response. This happens often.
“Am I talking to you?” is my general query. and again no response.
My special lady had silently moved inside to prepare something.
A while ago, I found myself talking to a pillar in the airport! I only found out it was a pillar when I tapped my long cane at it.
Yes, I am blind. When chatting to people who suddenly move away with no indication, is rather a bit irritating.
That’s why I propose Noisy Shoes! I am getting Julie a pair of those little tackies that Squeak!
