Pigga Pardon?


Me and my Dad – 1968

My Dad doesn’t hear that well.

For my entire childhood – if he didn’t quite understand what was said – his response was always “Pigga Pardon?” The response was normal to me, and I knew what it meant, even if objectively it didn’t make a lick of sense.

It wasn’t until years later that I figured out he was asking “Beg Your Pardon?” instead.

Turns out I am the one who doesn’t hear that well!
