100 Word Challenge - Listening

What follows is offered in response to Velvet Verbosity's 100 Word Challenge. The challenge, this week, is "Listening ".

Haiku Friday 

"Oh, I'm sorry. I didn't hear you", he said.
"Of course not. You never do. Nothing I say is EVER important enough for me NOT to have to repeat it."
"Not fair. I have things on my mind. By the time I'm aware that you said something, you're yelling at me because I wasn't listening."
"That's just it. You never listen - unless, of course, I'm suggesting we go upstairs ... oh, yeah, by God THEN you're listening."
"Geez, that sounds like a nice idea", he said with a grin.
"Get away from me you dog. I'm mad."
"Yeah ... but I'm listening."

well should I defend the men of the world? Maybe...I have to be honest, sometimes I am the one not listening, unless it's about shoes or "going upstairs" myself.

but here's the thing, technology has made it worse. Our phones, our tablets, we listen sometimes to the people inside of them instead of the person next to us who is talking. We are writing, or planning or laughing or coming up with the best comment or whatever.

this is funny because it stereotypes our poor guys who god love them, don't always listen, but we are guilty of it too.

as always, I come here...smile and THINK and just love your space Lou. Always.
