"Your Father Is Not Paying Attention to Anything I Say"

How Sadie Spends Much of Her Day
Thus spake my mother. 

"Your father is not paying attention.  He's not grasping anything I say.  I must tell him three or four times, and still he pays no attention to me."

I asked if he had on his hearing aids.  He's deaf as a post.  My mother assured me that he did.  She was terribly worried because he was not focusing on anything.  Was he getting worse?

She called later. 

Yes, there is a punchline to this story.

He wasn't wearing his hearing aids!
