What isn’t so sharp is her hearing. She wears a very small hearing aid because she doesn’t want anyone to think she might be getting deaf. She takes her trash out to the street at four a.m. so her neighbors won’t see her walk with a cane. She is one proud woman.
However, before her husband died ten years ago, he used to re-tell his favorite story about his wife. He would say that he could be in the next room and ask what she was fixing for lunch or dinner, but she didn’t answer. He would repeat himself with a louder voice and she would then hear him and answer. However, she could be in the basement doing the laundry and he would use his normal tone of voice as he stood at the top of the stairs and said, “Honey, do you want me to take you out for dinner?”
“Yes!” Her answer was instant. There was no need to ask a second time. She would scurry up the stairs and be ready to go in five minutes. He loved to tell that story and she never denied the truth as he chuckled.
