My sisters came in from Tallahassee tonight and, boy, was it good to see them. We’d been trying to get them to both come visit our house one weekend for a while, so I was thrilled when it finally worked out. My husband and I had been working all day to prepare for their arrival—we even spent most of the day cleaning and cooking a feast for dinner. (Lamb chops and baked potatoes —their favorites!)
So, naturally when my sisters came in they were very excited and talkative. Like true sisters, we were all very chatty around the dinner table—though, weirdly, my normally talkative husband seemed quiet and distant. I wondered why he was so aloof.
After dinner I talked with him and private, and he mentioned that he had a lot of difficulty hearing all the conversations at the table, which actually embarrassed him. I told him not to worry about it, but the next day he insisted I take him to get a pair of hearing aides.
We went to Miracle Ear the next morning, where they were able to help him very quickly find what he needed. Now, luckily, he’s back to his normal (and talkative) self.
