man feared his wife wasn`t 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.
The Doctor told him there is a simple, informal test the husband could perform to give the Doctor a better idea about her hearing loss.
`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.` Then in a normal tone he asks, `Honey, what`s for Dinner?`
So the husband moves closer to the kitchen, about 30 feet from his 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?`
Again he gets no response.
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?`
(I just love this).....
