Has it really been almost a month since my last post?! Time flies.
Just thought I would mention a small CI moment. This won’t seem very impressive to most of you but thought it was kinda cool especially since I wasn’t actively listening.
Of course, charity and sherry are 2 entirely different words with different numbers of syllables.
At dinner, Dennis was talking about a dodgeball charity tournament and he was sim-comming (signing and speaking at the same time). I happened to look away for a second and missed that Dennis had signed “charity.” I did catch part of the word via lip-reading and listening.
I asked him “who?” I was confused because I thought I heard “Sherry” which didn’t match up with what we were talking about. Then Dennis repeated that he had said “charity.”
I am always mixing up the “SH” and “CH” sounds. So, to me…sherry sounds similar to charity. This is kind of an example of how sometimes I can identify certain sounds but I don’t always pick them all out. In this case I was able to pick out there was a “SH” or a “CH” sound and figured out there was a “R” in there somewhere. It’s a fill-in-the-blank game for my brain.
This is random….but no one ever told me that you can hear a person brushing their teeth from across the room…and it’s quite noisy.
