Troy is a quiet man of few words and dislikes idle chit-chat. His wife Clara is a non-stop talker and complainer. They have been happily married for over 50 years. What’s their secret? Troy’s hearing began to diminish after about 20 years of marriage, a casualty of long work hours at the sawmill. The long hours away from Clara and the slow and steady decline of Troy’s hearing kept the couple together until he retired a few years ago. Now controlled hearing keeps the aging couple together and happy. Clara can talk and complain all she wants and the Manchester hearing aids Troy wears in both ears allows them to happily occupy the same room at the same time. He turns them on, off, up and down as desired, hearing what he wants to hear and filtering out the chatter he can live without.
You all heard the popular redneck jokes. Well, this isn’t a redneck story. You know you are old when you are (fill in the blank). You can know these words are wise. I have the sign of wisdom. GRAY HAIR.
You know your are old when you spend 10 minutes stopping the drips after you bleed your gizzard. Yep, I said it, I hit the nail on the head. I was having dinner the other day at the local cafe. My daughter embarrased because the front of my trousers were spotted with my leaking afterward.
So take it from me these three steps to be leak proof. First is to watch how much you drink. Second is dark jeans are terrific in camouflaging. Third do not be too embarrassd to wear incontinence pads. For me these have been lifesavers. I hope these steps will help make you leak proof.
