(I'm 55. And while I know my hearing isn't as good as it was 10 years ago, it's still good. I don't have much trouble with it during my workday and errand-running.....)
Me 15 minutes ago: something along the lines of "I thought I could turn the oven on by now for cornbread to go with beans, but boy it's still too hot isn't it?"
DH: "yeah, condu zzu AFF but alla nu go ttff so freendd appa see cond'e. No krnnd alamapap to condolizarice".
Me: "sorry honey, what?"
DH: "Zuzzu the oven, markkkkkky sephed tutu yull tammined cornbread, alamapap oven, zrashha prappa tff nu see. Just yenn zzhe warggarder....."
Me: well, silence. I gave up. There was no understanding what the man was saying. I swear he's just mumbling to me lately.
Is it just me? Or is there a lot more mumbling going on lately? I think that's it.
