An email I sent my friends Friday morning:
Just to start your Friday off right:
Never make assumptions.
I had NO CLUE that I bought my husband a talking birthday card with a 20 second joke about hemorrhoids.
I kid you not.
He about wet himself opening it this morning.
And to make matters worse?
He looked at me blankly as the thing prattled on and on and on.
Then I watched the realization cross his face slowly… as it struck him as hilarious that I couldn’t possibly have known what the card was saying.
Then horror of horrors, my parents cracked it open again while we were at dinner.
Imagine… a loud hemorrhoids narrative whilst enjoying a fine dining establishment…
That’s right folks – deaf people should never make assumptions. Cuz they make a hemorrhoid out of you and me.
