Sound Assurance

I’ve decided that the best way to get my friend’s attention is to text message her. She has programmed her phone to quack whenever she gets a text message(you know who you are). This may seem a slightly trivial fact until I tack on that the quacking persists until she hits a button to make it stop. She’s tried before to endure the quacking, if only to see how long it goes, or how long she could bare it. I feel pretty certain that she informed me that she lasted over 20 minutes once. A phone call will stop once you hang up or leave a message, unless it’s like my old phone that would beep every 10 minutes to inform me I missed a call, thus landing it under a pillow and a bunch of blankets when I left it at home once with my roommate who wouldn’t just hit the button. But this quacking is the greatest thing ever, if I text her she is sure to get annoyed enough to read it no matter what activity she was doing. It’s just reassuring to know that I can be heard.
In other news I am shocked by the death of Heath Ledger. I was going to write about him today, but I read Claire’s blog and she pretty much said whatever I would have, so if you want go check out her entry today. I just think that he was a talented actor and I am truly sorry to hear of his passing.

So I've actually made it to one full hour of quacking. A never ending quack ring is the perfect answer to my lack of ability to hear. Don't judge me because I'm disabled!!
