Hump Day Giggle...

A man feared his wife Peg 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?"

No response.

So the husband moves closer to the kitchen, about 30 feet from his wife and repeats, "Peg, 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. "Peg, what's for dinner?"

I just love this.....)

"Frank , for the FIFTH DAMNED time: CHICKEN!"

Sorry I've been AWOL the past several days. Hubby was kind enough to share his cold with me (on top of my already out-of-control allergies). I've only been on the computer enough to take care of business that I couldn't put off and then back to bed. Rain, glorious rain, is supposed to be coming in today to knock down the pollen and I sure hope it does!!

Have a wonderful hump day, everyone!!
Peace and love,

ROFL!! Oh, I love this. Perfect!

Huge hugs for the allergies and the cold. Tell hubby to keep it to himself next time LOL.

Hope you feel better. I'll pray for rain for you.

Hope you're feeling better soon, Alannah! A cold on top of allergies is not nice.

Great 'funny' today - I didn't see that punch line coming. Or maybe my hearing's going...

Liza said...

LOL! Thanks for the laugh Alannah. Hope you feel better soon. We missed out on all the rain, so pollen is still out of control here, as are my allergies.

I thought this funny was great too. It came from dad and I could so see him and my step-mom having a conversation like this. LOL

We've gotten rain!! Yay!!!

Between the rain, the Claritin, the Dayquil and the Mucinex I think I'm on the mend. Either that, or I'm just so drugged up I don't realize I'm still really sick. I'm going with being on the mend. verification word is: sumbooks.....

Like, I have sumbooks I need to be writing. :)

ROFL! Like everyone,I didn't see this one coming.

Hang in there. Drugs are good when they help you get better. My word is unegat. Sounds like something you should put on your chest to ease the cough. :D
