On a light-hearted note, some days you can’t win for a funny reason. You’re lip-reading your best friend, because that’s what you do and suddenly you lose the conversation entirely. The word ‘sempre’ gave it away. She’s Spanish, the other girl in the conversation was Spanish and she had slipped into it when I wasn’t looking.
I grinned, couldn’t help it. There was no way I could have understood. Yay! I almost burst out laughing!
Try this on your nearest and dearest.
“Try saying ‘Easter Egg’ in the mirror. Now just mouth it. Switch your voice off if you can. That’s really difficult. ;)”
If someone else can lip-read what you’re saying (without you telling them) I’ll eat my hat. Better make it a chocolate one.
Happy Easter Sunday.
