The Hearing Aids that Exploded

The Hearing Aides that exploded




My husband has these state of the art hearing aides.  He never wears them.   So, after 18 months of saying a LOT of stuff, that he was undoubtedly missing (either on purpose or from hearing loss) I whined long enough until he finally put them back in .




I asked him, ‘How did it go?” on his teaching assignment one late evening after he had worn them.  He replied, ‘Oh it was fine, no problem”

Then he told me how he drove up the Gineste – our beautiful ride back to our home in Cassis which is long and winding and incredibly steep.  He said, “Well I didn’t want to tell you this, but on the way home, it felt like a fireworks went off in my head and I almost lost control of the car.”   “What??” I say?  He says, “Yes, I forgot that when you have a change of altitude – or atmospheric pressure – you’re not suppose to wear them.  It was so loud, I almost lost control of the car”     “Oh dear!”  I exclaimed.  “ How awful?  Are you okay?”




“What was that?”  he asks…………….




True story.




But then, they’re ALL true.

    OMD! ( OMD-french is the same as OMG-english. just discovered, get it?) Poor thing was probably dazed for days. David,dazed,for days! lol. So never wear while driving unless you are in Florida. You dont have to worry about altitude changes here unless you are traveling by plane, but for now, sea level is good. When will you be coming for your long stay? Your room is ready with a new temperpedic bed. Not the real thing but the same materials as the real thing. Can’t wait to see you guys!
