Default Re: What is Happening, part II

Numbers and stupidity are still going up.

We did a bit of travelling and saw my parents. They are both in their late 80"s and both accuse the other of "loosing it" They are both hard of hearing but refuse to admit it. Mom talks so softly I can hardly hear her so dad asks her to repeat things and she gets cranky because he's deaf. Meanwhile he can stand right behind her, call her name several times and she doesn't hear a thing, and if she does, she tells him he's mumbling. But they're both in pretty good health and in their own house so we just laugh and hope we have them for a few more years.
