From Marvin Olasky's column in the latest WORLD magazine:
There once was a man who thought his wife was losing her hearing. A doctor suggested that he try a simple at-home test: Stand behind her, ask her a question from different distances, and see when she can hear it. The man went home, and seeing his wife in the kitchen facing the stove, he asked from the door, "What's for dinner tonight?" No answer. Ten feet behind her, he repeats, "What's for dinner tonight?" Still no answer. Finally, right behind her he asked, "What's for dinner tonight?" His wife turned around and said, "For the third time - chicken."
Oh my. How likely is it that my pride will result in a similar episode? Too funny. :)
