    A man feared his wife was not 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.
    "Here's 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 so on until you get a

    That evening, the wife is in the kitchen cooking dinner, and he was in
    the den. He says to himself, "I'm about 40 feet away. Let's see what
    happens." In a normal tone he asks, "Honey, what's for dinner?"

    No response. So the husband moves to closer to the kitchen, about 30
    feet from his wife, and repeats, "Honey, what's for dinner?"

    Still no response. Next he moves into the dining room where he is about
    20 feet from his wife and asks, "Honey, What's for dinner?"

    Again, no response. So, he walks up to the kitchen door, about 10 feet
    away. "Honey, What's for dinner?"

    Again, there is no response. So he walks right up behind her. "Honey,
    what's for dinner?"

    "Earl, for the 5th time, CHICKEN!"
