Last week, we went to a play, a parody of the all the Housewives shows, which I love.
I was super excited to go and laugh!
We got there early and decided to go to a new restaurant and have a drink before going in. We ordered our AF drinks and had so much fun just talking.
Then the show!
Except...I couldn't understand any of the dialogue. None of it.
So we left at intermission, and went to dinner instead.
But, for once, I wasn't depressed. I wasn't sad that I couldn't hear.
My lack of hearing affects me, but it doesn't control me.
Maybe I can't go to plays, but I can do many other things.
Being hearing impaired presents challenges to be sure, and I never know in what situation I will be able to hear much or not. But it doesn't mean I can't have a full and happy rest of my life! It's up to me. I can decide to look for the light or the dark.
Dinner was so fun.
Mr. Untipsy told me all about the play (well, the first half).
And we laughed.
Our smiles are real here.
They show us being happy with just being thankful for good food and the delightful company of each other.
With Much Love,
On Day 389
