In his soliloquy ‘All the world’s a stage’ Jacques in As You Like It talks about the aged sans teeth, sans eyes, sans taste, sans everything but he doesn’t mention hearing. It’s come. I found I had to strain to hear my literature tutor’s lectures so I’ve got them – hearing aids. And they work – at least so far. I got them in Specsavers. I’d been getting my glasses there for years and saw a leaflet stating that they now do hearing aids. One-stop shopping!!
