Personal Quote: People are weird. Don't try to understand, just work with what you can prove.
So, I just start to open my front door after doing 6 miles on my bicycle this evening. The door is jerked open by my daughter and my wife is yelling at me from the hallway. I can't hear anything because I still have my iPod headphones in my ears playing inappropriate music very loudly. I stop my music.
"It sounded like bloody murder!"
"Is someone hurt out there!"
I have no idea what they are talking about. Neither does my son, but he was closed up with the computer engaged in intense online gaming. He didn't hear anything.
My wife runs to the back door checking outside, while my daughter looks up and down our fairly empty street.
I never heard anything.
My wife is giving me that irritated look she does because she doesn't believe I'm taking her seriously. Us married guys, we all know that look.
Anyway, I was like, look, I didn't hear what you ladies heard. I didn't hear it. Sorry, again.
I told my son that women are just crazy in general. He laughed.
So I put my iPod on the charger.
I notice my cellphone was blinking.
Ah, okay it's just a text message from Mike about an interview in the morning...Uh oh.
Uh, well, see the other day I changed the sound on my phone for text messages. To something, well, something that would catch my attention.
Something like the sound from Star Wars, when R2-D2 is spit out of a swamp monster's mouth.
Ah, it's kind of a screaming noise.
It fact it's actually called, "R2-D2 Screaming."
It's kind of funny, right.
My wife and daughter didn't think so.
My son still thought it was funny.
Yeah, well now my text message alerts sound like Star Trek's communicator.
