Y'know that ringing in your ears?

(Poor husband. We harass him so.)

Since we busted our cable service down to basic, the husband has been enjoying his favorite cable TV shows on He carries the laptop around the house to wherever the boys and I might be so he can "be family", and he listens on ear buds so as not to disturb whatever the rest of us are doing.
Sometimes, though, audio from the buds is loud enough for all of us to hear.

Take last night for example.
Elder Son and I were doing homework at the kitchen table as the husband watched "Fringe" at the other end of the room. Suddenly, the boy and I heard a distant phone ringing. We both stopped and looked around. The husband didn't budge.
"Your father's head is ringing," I told Elder Son. "Would you answer it, please?"

One of these days it'll be the child telling you, "Your husband's head is ringing." It'll be a magic moment -- trust me. I've never laugh so hard as the first time my son actually said something funny.
