The Honey "Listen" List

The Honey "Listen" List

I don’t need a “honey do” list because my honey does a lot around our house. More than me. What he doesn’t do well is listen. Do I talk a lot? Yes. Am I a nag? Sure. But, I also remember a lot. For the both of us. Plans for the week. Niece’s birthday. His eye doctor appointment.

And as a result, I have to repeat myself a lot. A lot.

Why? I mean seriously – why doesn’t he hear me when I speak? I’ve given this a lot of thought and have narrowed it down to the following possibilities:

  1. The obvious – maybe he has a legit hearing problem.
  2. The sound of my voice creates an unbearable shrieking sound in his head.
  3. He’s drinking a beer. 
  4. He’s figured out that no listening = no responsibility.
  5. He enjoys seeing me angry.
  6. His brain can only retain information about the Pittsburgh Steelers and politics.
  7. The television is on.
  8. He’s heard it all before.
  9. There’s a cool video on his phone.
  10. He’s hungry, tired, fill in the blank…
