Whats for Dinner



A man feared his wife wasnt 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.


Heres 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 s o 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, Im about 40 feet away, lets see what happens. Then in a normal tone, he asks, Honey, whats for dinner? No response.


So the husband moves to closer to the kitchen, about 30 feet from his wife and repeats, Honey, whats for dinner? Still no response.


Next, he moves into the dining room where he is about 20 feet from his wife and asks, Honey, whats for dinner?


Again he gets no response so, He walks up to the kitchen door, about 10 feet away. Honey, whats for dinner? Again there is no response.


So he walks right up behind her. Honey, whats for dinner?


James, for the FIFTH time Ive said, CHICKEN!


Moral: The problem may not be with the other one as we always think, could be very much within us!
