Two old men meet for coffee
once a week at a diner while
their wives play cribbage.
Jim says he has a problem.
His wife leaves the water running
in the bathroom sink late at night.
Jim says without her hearing aids
she can’t hear the water running.
Bill admits he too used to leave
the water running. Then he bought
hearing aids he can leave in at night.
Now he always turns the water off.
He tells Jim he should do what
his wife did before Bill bought
his expensive new hearing aids.
Hide the stopper to the sink.
