Hear, hear!

We went in today to get rdeck's hearing re-checked - there was a place in town, where he went to before and they had his earlier audiograph or whatever it's called, and they were doing a promo-free testing thing as the grand opening in their new business premises, so we took rdeck's ears in for a physical.

Upshot is he probably needs a bit more help... but then I decided to stick around and get my own hearing tested, too. What the hey, it was a a free test, and the last time I had anything semi-official done with my own ears was volunteering for somebody studying something or other about sound transmission back at the University of Auckland well over ten years ago, so I figured I might as well take a shot at it.

Hee hee hee. I am gloating mightily. The audiologist told me I had the hearing of a 16-year-old.

Well, everything ELSE might be going to hell in a handbasket but my ears work just fine, thank you very much. Perhaps now with corroboration like this rdeck will believe me when I tell him that if he closes up his hearing aid and leaves it on his desk I can hear it whining ALL THE WAY FROM THE BOTTOM OF THE STAIRS DOWN TO THE LOWER FLOOR, and damn does it set my teeth on edge.

But I hear like a teenager. So there. So there, so there, so there.
