Like sands thru the hourglass, these are the days of our lives. Who knows why that phrase came to mind. I haven’t watched Days of Our Lives since forever. Do they even start the soap opera like that anymore? Is Days of Our Lives still on the air?
Electronic tones are running our life. At least most the tones that aren’t the same frequency as my tinnitus. Supposedly Hitler had a form of tinnitus, at least a few say the buzzing was telepathy. I should be so lucky to read other’s thoughts.
But all I hear are tones…
- Phone: forget the ringtones (Dancing Queen is on Nancy’s phone), the phone makes a ding-a-ling when she gets an email and a dddlllling, dddllllling, when she gets a voice mail.
- The dryer bongs when the load is dry.
- The washer makes a bing-bing-bing.
- Refrigerator/Freezer goes boop-boop when I’ve been standing with the door open too long.
- Spot bot – the dog spot carpet cleaner – announces whoop-whoop when it’s done with that spot.
- Answering machine beeps when there is a message.
- Get in the car and the bing-bing-bing nags me to fasten my seat belt.
- Leave my keys? You know the bong-bong-bong.
- Gas low? I’ve been told it makes a tone (this is one that apparently hits the sweet spot of my tinnitus.)
- Battery low in smoke detector? Annoying chirp-chirp-chirp
- My CPAP beeps when I turn it on. As if a Force Four typhoon blowing up my nose isn’t enough to let me know the machine is working.
It could be worse:
- Beeping Wallet
- In Korea, they had to ADD a beep to phones when the shutter was clicked. Seems upskirt shots are a fav, so they disabled the “shutter mute.”
- Car would beep like the trucks when backing up – prediction: this is coming!
- I guess some power supplies beep when power is lost.
- Beeping Golf Balls
I have enough bleeping stuff already.
