Let’s Get Ready To Rumble…If You Can

Many times I say I’m a weirdo. Now I know it for sure. I’m one of a small number of people who can make their ears rumble voluntarily! I can hear it now. “You can what?” Seriously. Ever since I was a kid I noticed that my ears made rumbling noises. I first noticed it when I was yawning or doing something that needed a lot of pushing or hard work. I thought I was breaking something so I would always make it stop because I was sure they weren’t supposed to do that. Then, as I got either more brave or stupid, I would just do it to see what happens. Yeah, blind kid, playing with your ears and hearing is a great idea, you fool! I never did it to drown someone out, I don’t think I could make a rumble that powerful. Maybe I’ve gotten weak? But I can make my ears rumble at will.

I told Steve about this and he thought I was nuts. I just assumed everybody could do this. Apparently, there are only some that can.

Well, there’s your weird tidbit for the day.

  1. Is that the thing where you squeeze your ears and eyes shut as hard as you can and then feel your head start kind of vibrating? I think I can do that too. If it’s the same thing that I’m thinking it is.
