So today while I was picking up my children from a friends home, I kept hearing someone whistling. It sounded like they were in my car OR really nearby. I kept looking around trying to find the person whistling...and finally found the sweet old lady across the street whistling while she was doing yard work. This reminded me of a conversation I had with my husband on our way to the temple on Saturday.
MY HUSBAND CAN'T WHISTLE? I was astonished when I first discovered this while dating. I did not know it was possible to not know how to whistle. How can anyone go through the scouting program, or childhood without whistling? My husband surely did with very happy memories. How can anyone be a dad and not be able to call his kids? Well my hubby sure does.
Was it because he was never taught? because he never tried? I don;t have any memories of someone specifically sitting me down to teach me to whistle....then I found out HIS MOM CANNOT WHISTLE either. Hmm....it began to make me wonder if it is a genetic thing. I realize this is really NOT a big deal--I was just super surprised to learn that there are some people who just CAN'T WHISTLE. I even practiced with my hubby in the car to see if I could coach him into it. He has a small mouth, does that matter? IS THERE ANYONE ELSE OUT THERE WHO CAN"T WHISTLE? I am super curious to find out.
But for now he will just have to settle for this form of whistling below....
