Now i am loving it!
You should understand that Adam had no choice but to adapt. It goes like this:

Eve to Adam: Do you love me? ad Nauseum
Adam to Eve : Come again? ad Infinitum;
The Original selective listener was Adam and i have inherited that gene from him! ,When my patients(not all) say"Doc, you're charging the earth for a 15 min. consultation" ,i turn on the "selective hearing mode".
