You and my husband are kindred spirits. My husband says the same thing about me! But between us, I recently had my hearing checked and, clinically speaking, I hear fine. I apparently have what’s called “selective hearing” … just please don’t tell my husband!
While actual hearing loss is never a joking matter, you can still have some fun while making your point. Because, candidly, no one wants to hear “You’re losing your hearing ol’ man!”
Next time you have a conversation – pantomime! Gesticulate with your hands and mouth the words, but don’t make any sound. Or, put the TV on at a very low volume. He’ll either be content with the peace and quiet or it’ll frustrate him enough to make that appointment.
Alternatively, you could get yourself a good megaphone and bring it everywhere! That way, your man (and everyone else within a quarter mile radius) will hear you. It’ll be fun, and you’ll appear loving and supportive. It is all about the win-win, amirite? Can I get an Amen?! A what??? An A…oh, never mind.
