scenes from a marriage …. gustaf and anna, part 2

Gustaf decided his Anna was getting hard of hearing. He called her doctor to make an appointment to have her hearing checked. The Doctor said he could see her in two weeks, and meanwhile there’s a simple, informal test that Gustaf could do to give the doctor some idea of the dimensions of the problem.

“Here’s what you do. Start about 40 feet away from her, and speaking a normal conversational tone and see if she hears you. If not, go to 30 feet, 20 feet, and so on until you get a response.”
So that evening she’s in the kitchen cooking dinner, and he’s in the living room, and he says to himself, “I’m about 40 feet away…let’s see what happens.”
“Honey, what’s for supper?” No response. So he moves to the other end of the room, about 30 feet away.
“Honey, what’s for supper?” No response. So he moves into the dining room, about 20 feet away.
“Honey, what’s for supper?” No response. On to the kitchen door,ten feet away.
“Honey, what’s for supper?” STILL no response. So he walks right up behind her. “Honey, what’s for supper?”
“For the fifth time, CHICKEN!!!”

    • … yes, it’s good … experience that myself many years ago sitting on the tram in Gothenburg and two ladies in front of me had an wired conversation – they didn’t talk about the same thing, one about fresh cod she had bought the day before and the other woman about good friends that had moved – after a good 0.5 hour one of them said – your not listen to me *smile
