the special gift  Have you ever noticed that two people may listen to a person say something and yet they both believe that they heard something else? Then if they are asked a question about it each person will give a different response.  Sometimes I think people simply hear what they want to hear but not necessarily what may have been said.  In many of the old TV shows that included families, the children appeared to listen to their parents but then did the complete opposite. That may also be true in politics.  The politician will speak and what the audience interprets is not even remotely similar with any two people. In a way it is almost as if they are interpreting something completely different.  Then, of course, you have the people who listen but take everything said in literal sense.  For example, Sheldon on “Big Bang Theory” is exactly that way which leads to discussions and laughter.  When we were in school, it was drilled into our brains various subjects and topics which helped us to learn.  In addition, we had the written words in the books to guide us. Of course, eavesdropping is often something that leads to problems.  It is always better to mind our own business. Unfortunately, people are nosey and cannot stop themselves.  In the Good Gus series listening is again an underlying theme as it is always important to follow directions. The Good Gus Series is available online at Kindle, Nook and Waterstones. Hard copies, personally autographed, are available through our website along with past blogs for your reading enjoyment. Digitizing for all the books will be ready next week! Please consider adding “The Special Gift” as a new Christmas tradition.
