“What? Say Again.”

Alex McClelland in Sarah Liss, Army of Lovers: A Community History of Will Munro

He was totally in denial about his hearing problem. He used to have to wear a hearing aid in school, and he just stopped wearing it. I don’t know many people who are functionally half-deaf and fake going through life. He was really good at doing that, and he’d miss so much. He had one good ear, and if he cared, he would turn to you so he could hear you, and would be good at making people think he knew what they were saying. So he missed a lot of stuff.

Being hard of hearing i.e. deaf in one ear, I glom onto this bit…

He had one good ear, and if he cared, he would turn to you so he could hear you, and would be good at making people think he knew what they were saying.

And I wonder if my own interest in the sequencing of sequences (and the reshuffling of stories across sensory modalities) is not tied with this little bit of biographical biology: strong memory for previous bits and their combinations.

And so for day 3023
