A man feared his wife was not hearing as well as she used to,
and he thought she might need a hearing aid.
Not quite sure how to approach her,
he called the family doctor to discuss the problem.

“Here’s what you do,” said the doctor.
“Stand about 40 feet away from
her and in a normal conversational speaking tone see if she hears you.

If not, go to 30 feet, then 20 feet, and so on until you get a response.”

That evening, the wife is in the kitchen cooking dinner,
and he was in the den.

He says to himself, “I’m about 40 feet away. Let’s see what happens.”
In a normal tone he asks,

“Honey, what’s for dinner?”

No response.

wife, and repeats,

“Honey, what’s for dinner?”

Still no response. !

Next he moves into the dining room where he is about 20 feet from his
wife and asks,

“Honey, What’s for dinner?”

So, he walks up to the! kitchen door, about 10 feet away.

“Honey, What’s for dinner?”

Again, there is no response.

So he walks right up behind her.

“Honey, what’s for dinner?”

“George, for the 5th time,
