M. P.

For several days, Maggie kept asking if we could watch Monty Python. Uh, I don't think we own any Monty Python movies. If we did, I'm not sure whether they'd be appropriate for Maggie. Besides, I just can't imagine her asking to watch Monty Python. It was such a confusing request, and I kept giving an adamant "NO!"

Finally one day she asked how long we'd had that Monty Python movie from Netflix. But we don't have a Monty Python movie. We only had a documentary on English kings and Mary Poppins.

Mary Poppins.

M. P.

Is that what she meant by "Monty Python"?

Yes. Central auditory processing disorder strikes again!


  1. And you are probably right... she wouldn't really enjoy the other one I don't think. I don't enjoy it, but Mary Poppins, I can get into that movie quickly.

  2. I didn't know what CAPD was, but your story illustrates it perfectly. Now I've looked up, too, (but not on snopes or wikipedia!) so I feel smarter.

    Being deaf in one ear, I sometimes make the same sorts of mistakes, especially in situations with lots of background noise. I can't filter the various kinds of noise as well as most!
