Thanks to Mary Lou for this one!

A man feared his wife was not hearing as well as she used to, she might need a hearing aid.

Not quite sure how to approach her, he called the family Dr. to discuss the problem. The Dr. told him there was a simple informal test the husband could do, to give the Dr. a better idea about her hearing loss.

The Dr. said ... "Stand about 40 feet away from her and in normal conversational voice see if she hears you.
If not, go to 30, then 20 feet and so on until you get a response."

That evening, his wife is in the kitchen cooking dinner, and he was in the den. He decides he's about 40 feet away. Let's see what happens.  In a normal tone he asks .., "Honey, what's for dinner?" No
response.

He moves to within 30 feet. "Honey, what's for dinner?" Still no response.   Next he moves into the dining room where he's about 20 feet from  his wife ... "Honey, what's for dinner?  Again, no response.

He walks to the kitchen door, about 10 feet, and asks ..."Honey, what's for dinner?  No response.  He walks into the kitchen and stands right behind her ..."Honey,  what's  for dinner?"

"Earl, for the 5th. time, CHICKEN!"
