I take the same route to the train station every morning and despite havng done so for the last seven months, this “sound” never really registered until recently. My route takes me right past the large flower bed that graces the middle of Evans St. right off of Main.
Every morning, the automatic sprinklers come on and obviously, the water sprays to the street. Not enough to make a puddle but more like a top cover for the road. Every morning, I am hearing this “newpaper rustling” sound. Because I have never heard it before being implanted, it never registered. I am like…”WOW!” like some 4 year old kid who got his first bike.
These are the kind of moments we live for thanks to the technology of Advanced Bionics!
