Just to entertain the troups, I am volunteering this tattle tale.
A few weeks ago I went swimming -- well, actually, floating -- with my hearing aids in. Technically only one hearing aid, as I suspect that my other one fell prey to a vicious attack kitty but I can't hold the kangaroo trial for it yet, due to lack of evidence. Oh no wait, kangaroo trials are never held up for a mere lack of evidence, are they? Anyway, I digress.
It may have been a Freudian slip, or in this case, swim. However, scientific evidence shows that the people most likely to wear hearing aids are ALSO the people most likely to lose them. Case in point, nobody with perfect hearing has ever, in the history of mankind, lost one. Or two.
Thus, I am trying to remember not to do this again. My new motto is THINK befORe SWIM.
