There’s a storm right now. Not the exciting storm that the news played up we’d have, with crashes of thunder and lightning, just a low rumble and a couple of flashes. But it’s still a welcome sound after how hot it’s been lately. Clears the air doesn’t it?
I had a feeling there was going to be a storm. My ears started ringing. They always do right before a storm. You know, kind of like a dog whistle? My boyfriend thought I was going crazy when I used to say to him, “you’ve left the TV on standby, I can hear it”. He would say, “you can’t possibly hear it, there’s no sound coming out of it”. But I could, I swore down every time.
I just said to my work colleague, “I think there’s going to be a storm, my ears are ringing” and she looked at me like I was nuts. I tried to explain that I could hear electricity – it’s the only way I can describe it, because of course I’m not actually hearing the electricity, but I Googled it to prove my point and some people can hear the frequency waves of the electricity – that’s what the high pitched dog whistle sound in my ears in. Apparently I have a very high frequency shut off. Yippee for me. Since that means that you only have to leave a socket on in my house and it drives me insane to the point I can’t sleep. It’s like constant tinnitus.
I apparently have the world’s shittest superpower.
