The doctor replies, “Oh, is that so? Well, let me try to help you. Just try this method when you get home today. Stand around 50 feet from her and ask her something. If she doesn’t hear it, reduce the gap by 10 feet and so on till she can hear what you say.”
The man satisfied with the reply, hurries home to try this little technique. He stands around 50 feet away from her, and shouts, “Hey honey, what’s for dinner today?”
He gets no response, so he moves closer and repeats the same question four more times till he’s right next to her.
He asks the same question again and she says, “For heaven’s sake, this is the fifth time I’m telling you, it’s just fruit salad tonight!”
