Hearing Aid – Comfort #695

Posted on July 14, 2011


At a young age he had taken his eyes to clean them and then lost them over night. Because he had no eyes he had to wear a pair of glasses to see anything. Even with the glasses he had a difficult time making out situations. When he was in high school he thought he was on the wrestling team, but really he was a feared bully. When he started his first job he thought he was an investment banker, but really he was working a cash register at a grocery store. He would have been able to tell these things had he also not been nearly deaf. He would often find himself at the optometrist, trying to get his prescription fixed so that he could see better. You have no eyes, the optometrist would say, but of course he heard nothing because he had never invested in a hearing aid.
