WoD – One Louder

Why is it that the louder something is, the harder it is for our brain to focus on or concentrate on anything else?  Conversely, if something is softer or quieter, we can multitask and do a few things at once.

We all know this is obvious, but my question is, why is it the case?

Somehow, the louder something is, the harder it is for the brain to process any other information.  Why can’t we just squelch it down, like we seem to do so well with a pesky younger brother asking lots of questions, or a mom telling us for the fifth time that it’s time to go up for bed…  (Just another of those weird brain things we don’t really understand all that well, I guess.)

Monday:

BIZ A HUNDERT UND TSVANTSIK  (BIHZ ah HOONdehrt oond TSVAHNtsihk)

A birthday or anniversary toast (literally: until one hundred and twenty)

May you live biz a hundert und tsvantsik!
