I heard this shrill whistling noise. The completely recognizable sound of a speaker about to blow. For some reason I was the only one who seemed to hear it. The Computer Guy can't hear high pitches, so I didn't even look at him, but the kids weren't phased either.
I looked at the choir director, raised an eyebrow and then looked at the speaker right behind me. He shrugged. Obviously he couldn't hear it. I glanced around. I was the only one who could hear it. What was that whistling sound?
Then as the homily was ending #3 leaned over to me.
"Did you hear me? I can speak bird."
