everyone in my house is loud. not a little loud, but quite loud.
me, i love quiet (except if i have itunes working its way randomly through my 30.2 days worth of music).
my wife is losing her hearing (although she is reluctant to admit it) so she talks at about twice the normal volume.
my son is hyper excitable and could run and yell all day long and often times does.
my daughter likes to emulate her brother and is quite good at holding on to a temper tantrum. all this at that distinct young girl pitch that is capable of killing brain cells.
all my attempts to lower the ambient volume of the household have failed and so i’ve resorted to modeling the behavior by talking more and more quietly.
pretty soon you’ll have to lip read anything i say because there will be no sound emitting from my mouth, not that it would matter around my house because even at full volume no one could hear anything i was saying…
