I really don't know who wrote the above but it wasn't me. Then it got me thinking about something that happened when I was very young in first or second grade. The school ordered a Hearing Test for all the students. They did a demo and the sound was very loud. When we had the test, I didn't put the head phones on to cover my ears so I didn't hear anything. That same day the Principal called my mother in to take me to the doctor. She said I was deaf but I must be very, very smart because nobody knew I was deaf but I read lips very well! My poor mother panicked and took me to the doctor. The Doctor told my mother there was nothing wrong with my hearing, the head phone didn't cover my ears. I still don't know if my mother was furious with me or the teachers! LOL
