sitting in Denny's this evening (don't ask - this is NOT what I moved home from Europe for).
"Stu - do you know that Mummy went to the dentist this morning?"
"Ye-e-e-ssss" (whining - as in why are you interupting my perfectly good whine)
"He installed a new hearing system for me."
"Yup - it's really cool. He put these things up through my teeth and up into my ears."
"Really?? What does that do?"
"It means I can't hear anyone who is whining when they talk. It was expensive but I think it's going to be worth it."
A few minutes later.... "Muuuummmmmmmmmmmmyyyyyyy......."
"Sorry Stuart are you trying to say something?? You must be whining because I can see your lips moving but I can't hear you. This thing works really well!"
Marc : "HEY!! I go to the dentist on Wednesday! YEAH!"
