Me: Dad, how are you feeling tonight? Your ears were bothering you so much when we drove down from Park City. Are they still ringing now?
Me: Your ears. How are your ears?
Dad: My knee? Well, the shot didn't help as much as last time.
Me: What about your ears?
Dad: My what?
Dad: Honey, I just can't hear you. My ears have really been ringing since we drove back down the canyon.
