Who Won the Week? 12/27/2020

FWWTWIt’s the last Sunday in 2020 and time for the last Who Won the Week prompt in 2020. The idea behind Who Won the Week is for you to select who (or what) you think “won” this past week. Your selection can be anyone or anything — politicians, celebrities, athletes, authors, bloggers, your friends or family members, books, movies, TV shows, businesses, organizations, whatever.

I will be posting this prompt on Sunday mornings (my time). If you want to participate, write your own post designating who you think won the week and why you think they deserve your nod. Then link back to this post and tag you post with FWWTW.

Earlier this month I wrote a post in which I whined about something that was causing a major problem between me and my wife. You may recall that almost a year ago I had surgery to remove a middle ear growth in my left ear. The surgery successfully removed the growth, but not before that damn growth ate a tiny bone in my middle ear that connects the ear drum to the inner ear. Without that tiny bone, sound waves that vibrate the ear drum don’t reach the inner ear, which means that sounds don’t reach the brain. As I result, I am deaf in my left ear.

The hearing in my right ear is a bit underwhelming as it is, so in order to hear the dialogue while my wife and I are watching TV, I have to turn the volume way up. But my wife, who can hear a pin drop from across the room, complained that the TV was way too loud for her.

The solution I came up with was to splurge on a fancy, fairly expensive wireless headphone system. But no matter how I tried to configure it, I couldn’t get the sound to come through both the headphones — so I could hear — and the speakers — so she could hear — at the same time.

Finally, as a last resort, I bought a pair of relatively inexpensive Bluetooth headphones on Amazon.After a bit of finagling with my TV’s settings, I am able to hear the audio from my headphones while my wife can hear it through the TV speakers without the volume so loud it’s practically blasting her from the room.

Hence, I declare that this week’s Who Won the Week winner is my wife. And you know what they say, right? Happy wife, happy life.

What about you? Who (or what) do you think won the week?

    We had the same problem. At ten when we have to be quiet in our apartments, I use the BT headphones, but if i forget to check and my ipad runs down, I get a huge blast of, your headphones are disconnected. 🤯

    Who won the week? I’d say medical and first responders personnel in my family who received the first part of the vaccine shots. They deserve it!

    My niece works in a hospital and she got her first dose of the corona virus vaccine. I believe all of the front line workers who are halfway to being protected are this week’s winners.
