This could be interesting, so I'll give this borrowed memelet a try. *crosses fingers*

One word to describe me ... just one single word.

Leave it in my comments.

Then post this message on your journal (or not) and see how many strange and interesting things people say about you!

*bats eyelashes* Please?

Meep, that doesn't sound like fun, especially when the unpleasant noises aren't dampened any!
I used to wonder if my husband was engaging in selective hearing *koff* until I personally crossed 40, and then discovered that I could not pick out a conversation at all over competing white noise like running water or a fan or a vacuum-cleaner or the like! Gah!

I'm pretty sensitive to those too--I swear, sometimes I feel like I'm going crazy when I'm the only one in a room to notice a buzzing light
Haha! This is SO obvious at the office for me-- I once crossed half a building because this little screaming buzzer sound was driving me nuts, and I had to lead an Online Support guy into his own locked-up equipment area to the machine that was screaming. He never could actually hear it-- he could only see the readout. That thing had been making me nuts for about a week at that point. :0

Another guy I finally barked at to oil his freaking chair already, and that turned out to be a really squeaky pen on a whiteboard. But it was making my eyes cross from 4 cubicles away!

And then there are those people who rip up styrofoam cups. Slo-o-o-wly, while they rub the broken edges together. AAAAAUUUUGH!

Seriously, I'd be glad to lose a little of that high-end hearing. :0

Gah indeed! But it's okay, you'll be one of those awesome old people who can't hear right, and your kids and grandkids will have to shout at you properly. You can't be adorable and weird without having your hearing go! I don't know about you, but my goal in life is to be a cute little old Asian lady, who's kind of senile and weird. *clappy hands*

All except the "kind of senile" and "Asian" part, anyway!

I can't achieve the second one, and I hope to avoid the first. ;) Weird, yes-- senile no. *crosses fingers*
