What?”

What, indeed.  I am tired of asking people to repeat themselves, of missing conversations and movie dialogue.  Anyway, losing my hearing reminds me of old people.  I know I am completely biased and unfair, but that’s how it feels.  I long feared this might happen, as my parents and their parents experienced auditory losses.  I just never expected hearing loss at this age.  I want to scream at the unfairness of it all.

Then I think about Beethoven’s glorious Ninth Symphony, which he composed in complete silence.

From what possible universe does my self-pity come?
