This is a true story from today. I did not know where to post this, but I wanted to share it with y'all.

My wife has been after me to get hearing aids, and I finally did.
I wanted to trim the hedges in our yard today and decided this would be a good time to wear the hearing aids so I could listen to the birds chirping. Hearing the birds was indeed a pleasant experience. But when I turned on the hedge trimmer I was shocked at how loud it was. I slowly began my trimming around the side of the house, feeling a sense of peace and joy. Suddenly I heard this guy cussing. It took a moment to realize it was me. When did I take up cussing and what am I cussing about? Quickly I realized my thumb and two fingers are on fire. My peace and joy were rudely interrupted by grabbing a hold of a poisonous caterpillar. Being the crotchety old man that I am, I sucked up the pain and continued on in my work. I had started early to avoid the afternoon heat, but the temperature was rising fast when I heard that guy cussing again. I never heard all this cussing until I wore my hearing aids. So, what is the problem now? My thumb and fingers are pleasantly numb, so why the cussing? Oh my gosh. I have cut my extension cord in half. The last time I did this was three years ago. Reckon I’ll never learn. So, I’m off to the shop for wire cutters and tape. As I stand at an outside work bench, in the sun, I hear someone mumbling. Who the heck is that? No way! It’s me. When did I start mumbling? These hearing aids are becoming a nuisance. Okay. The extension cord is repaired and it’s back to work. I finish my trimming and stand back admiring the job I had done when someone says “Looks good.” I look around to see who’s there, then realized it was me. Great….so now I’m talking to myself. Cussing, mumbling and talking to myself. Hearing aids have exposed some of my weaknesses. I reckon I may as well add one more to the list…..lying. My mother-in-law is coming for a visit. I think I will tell her I took a shower with my hearing aids in and can’t hear a thing she is saying.:)
