I am getting old.
It's funny how much medical technology has advanced in the past 35 years. My doctor asked if I'd ever had a hearing test done. I told him that I had one done when I was a kid. He asked if I wanted to do one right now, it would only take a minute.
Well, what I remembered of a hearing test was spending 45 minutes inside a sound proof room wearing big-ass head phones while they piped tones in and I had to raise my hand whenever I heard something. That was the image I had in my head when he ask me that question.
Now they have this little gun-like thing. The PA put it into my ear and pressed a button. It uses some kind of sonar thingy to determine what I can hear. It took all of 5 seconds. But it did agree that my hearing loss in my right ear is significant.
Anyway, I'm off to go enjoy my day off.
