I was in the car with my parents the other day. I brought up the topic of having my insurance deductible met and how I was trying to knock out all of the Doctor's visits I needed before the end of the year.
Me: I need to make an appointment to have my ears cleaned (very serious). Sometimes when I'm at the gym they feel clogged, or I can't hear. It almost sounds muffled. I think I have ear wax!
Them: Hysterically laughing. Laughing. Laughing.
Me: What's so funny?
Them: Laughing. Snorting. Laughing...Most people clean their own ears! Like with a Q-Tip or ear solution.
Me: Well, I don't. Besides, I work right down the hall from an ENT. I'll get him to clean my ears.
Them: Laughing. Go ahead call. Make an appointment. They will laugh at you too.
End of conversation.
Whatever! I haven't called to make an appointment yet, but I will.
Did I really just have this conversation with the same people that tell us as children "NEVER TO STICK ANYTHING SMALLER THAN YOUR ELBOW IN YOUR EAR?"
