Hearing Restored

It was time to face it: sounds were starting to run together. Since I like being able to understand people, especially my kids, it was time to do something about it. I headed in to the store and picked up one of those ear wax removal Stockport kits, hoping that would be all it took to restore me to normal hearing.

You know what they don’t tell you about those kits? They’re messy. Sure, there’s something kind of satisfying about hearing that soft crackle as the wax in your ears breaks up, and it’s a relief to see all that wax landing in the sink. It’s also a good idea, however, to remember to either throw a towel over your shoulders or accept that you’re going to have to change your shirt afterward, because wax-filled water goes everywhere. Or maybe that’s just me? On the bright side, I could hear again.
