I took a listening class today. We watched a news report about “Landing on Mars”. The vocabulariy was bit difficult but the news itself was really interesting. I should learn more SF words before starting to watch Stargate. Maybe I need a little bit more time.
Hmmm, I’m going to watch it before I’m thirty♩
Listening is important but sometimes it is better to not follow what is said.
Last year we visited Joe’s elderly aunt. The conversation turned to cell phone plans. Joe’s mother suggested we change the topic of conversation to something his aunt could talk about too. We were at a loss. Finally, his aunt: “Let’s talk about coffins.”
An awkward lull and then I piped up: “I like cappuccino!”
“Not coffee,” Joe informed me. ”Coffins.”
Me: “What difference?”
