Tuesday, October 16, 2018 – Rainy Days and Tuesday Always Make You Get Wet
I am so fortunate to have health benefits that allow wellness checks from my hallux to my calvaria and everything on the inside and the outside between the two body parts.
During my wellness check the doctor asked when my last hearing test was. I said, “Huh? I didn’t hear what you said.” Actually, I said “probably when I was 12 and school nurse Ruby Braswell was testing hearing that day.” So the doctor referred me to an audiologist.
I decided I really did not need to go, but then over the weekend this happened. During one of the afternoon football games a commercial for a local DNA lab came on. This is what I heard:
“Our lab offers DNA paternity testing, drug and alcohol testing, TxDot testing and lobotomy services.”
What it actually said was:
“Our lab offers DNA paternity testing, drug and alcohol testing, TxDot testing and phlebotomy services.”
Later that evening I was in the kitchen but could hear the TV. This is what I heard:
“Don’t miss J. C. Penny’s sale and buy one and get a second 20% off men’s penis.”
What the commercial actually said was:
“Don’t miss J. C. Penny’s sale and buy one and get a second 20% off men’s pants.”
My audiologist appointment is next week.
