28 Days of Writing - My ears are ringing

"That is one strange ringtone."

"What?"

 "I SAID THAT IS ONE STRANGE RINGTONE!"

"Oh. I didn't hear you.  My ears are ringing."

"Yes, I know that, you twerp, and those mobile phones look stupid clipped on your ears."

"Well, you said today's topic was 'My ears are ringing" so I thought would help you find something to write about."

"Thank you, but ringing in the ears is a medical condition, Silly."

"Oh."

"Um, if you put some tin foil on your head,  maybe you could.....  Nevermind.  Here's a banana, you monkey.  Go back to your closet.

-------------

Head on over to the cheese place and see what's ringing over there.

Did you know Steely Dan's Reelin' in the Years is often misheard as "are you ringing in the ears"? Yeah, really. You're welcome.

I really have no idea what to do with this prompt. Nada. Nothing. What you did is good, but I can't just copy yours. Or maybe I can. Or maybe I will.

I have never worn one of those things but I think they look so silly on people! I would hate being that attached to a phone!

I can't hear you. I've got a banana in my ear.

Linda said...

At least you had someone to help you with the prompt.

Michelle said...

Yes, um, well. My ears ring all the time, regardless of whether any is calling me. Makes life very confusing.

I'm wondering about your conversation. With Evil Twin, perhaps?

Blessings and Bear hugs!

@Noname - That sounds about right.

@Linda - You nailed it.

@Katherine - It would be crazy.

@Frank - Be careful. They go bad fast.

@Linda - Yes, oh so helpful!

@Michelle - Thanks, Sweetie!

@Rob-bear - Yes, Evil Twin was "helping" me.

I'm trying to imagine cell phones clipped onto somebody's ears. It sounds like a painful arrangement which could result in red, strained ears. I think I'm overthinking this one.

Oy! I hate ringing in the ears - it makes hearing anything else impossible!

I'm going to go try the tin foil thing now... BRB.
