I tease my husband all the time because he seems to notice the little things in life that are inconspicuous. Invariably, we’ll be doing something together and he’ll point out one of life’s incongruent nuances. Last weekend, for example, we rented the movie Body of Lies with Russell Crowe and Leonardo Dicaprio – interesting movie by the way. After hitting the “play” button, the DVD took us to a screen where we were able to select the language that we wanted the subtitles written in. In this section it said:
Select Subtitle Language
- English (for the hearing impaired)
My husband leaned over and said, “Look at the screen.”
“What’s wrong with it?”
“You notice anything about the subtitles listed?”
I looked at what my mind normally glossed over and processed as insignificant. I smiled. “Ha! Wouldn’t all of the subtitle languages be for the hearing impaired?”
He gave me a knowing grin. One thing I can say about living with someone so observant. Life is never boring.
Are you the kind of person who notices the unnoticeable?
