i heard that
Quinton made friends with a deaf boy this weekend. Michael can't hear and he talks funny, but he can read lips. I just had to make him look at me when I wanted to tell him something. He "hears" you if he can see your lips move. He felt right at home in the Crackerbox and he is damned good with a video game.
I wonder about a nine year-old lip-reader. Can he detect a yankee accent?
Yes, we damn well can hear your hillbilly drawl. Yankee deaf have a real hard time with it though. So used to fast talkers...
He probably signs as well and that would be a fantastic thing for your son to learn from him. I am trying to learn from some of the kids I work with at the farm--some as young as 3--who are autistic or have other problems that interfere with their speech. I am considering taking a course......
As for us Yankees, they understand us much more easily as we actually pronounce our words properly and are usually quite articulate ;)
Been reading your blog for a couple of weeks, it's entertaining as hell, but I've never commented, never saw the need. BUT, I just read your "about me" section and I've only got one thing to say ... "HOW 'BOUT THEM DAWGS!!!" I knew there was a reason I read this damn blog! Some good musings, I like the way you write, very honest.
I've been reading your site for a while too, I even threw you a link from my own. (you probably didn't notice because I have no traffic)
I've certainly come to consider you a rolemodel for America's youth.
When a person loses one sense, some other sense typically becomes more acute in order to compensate. I doubt that the young man can detect a Yankee ACCENT, but he probably can SMELL a Yankee. (You do know, Rob, that Yankees smell funny.)
Yes, we do smell funny.........it's called CLEAN, as in SOAP!! And deodorant!! (cause even tho a yankee lady never 'sweats', some have been known to perspire now and again) LOL
While growing up I became best friends with a kid that was 75% deaf and another kid who had a disease in his eyes that made it real difficult for him to see. I gotta say it was interesting playing neighborhood games with them whenever anything had to be explained I was always yelling at one and keeping the other one from bumping into things. One day the two of them got in a fight and it was the funniest thing I ever seen I was laughing the whole time. I do think it's helped me be more tolerant of people with handicaps.
One must be poor to know the luxury of giving.
