New Uses for Earplugs

With a pilot in the house, we never have a shortage of earplugs. In fact, we’ve accumulated quite the stack of the little yellow ones because Husband has been flying so much recently.

I’m sure this could be something to celebrate. After all, we can rest easy knowing that our delicate hearing will always have the means to be safely protected. Or, I could just celebrate that they’re sitting securely on the dresser, instead of on the bottom of our washer like usual.

Still, I was beginning to wonder what to do with pile.

Husband found a creative use for them, and I’m posting the evidence. I’d like to think that this might be the first-ever message written entirely in earplugs posted on the internet. (But, probably not, since I’m sure there are many other creative husband-pilots out there.)

You'll notice the message is a very cryptic “I.L.Y!” representing three words. Either my husband has a new-found fondness for Yahtzee (unlikely, but possible), or he was just expressing his love for me.

If you really want to get rid of them... my husband is always asking me to buy him some but I have no idea where to even get them. So if you want to send some my way, I'd be happy to take them off your hands! I love the green :)

my three year old LOVES earplugs. I've often wondered if this is one of those signs of his obvious military upbringing. He loves to walk around with them in his ears, yelling "I cant hear anything!". But at least I've gotten him to stop shoving them up his brothers nose!
