a dentist wearing hearing aids?
Apart from the news about my hearing impairment after going through audiometry, I honestly think that it's starting to deteriorate again. Misheard for... more than ever. The audiologist told me the impairment is irreversible and I'm supposed to put on earplugs when needed... obviously I defaulted her instructions bahahaha! I still have perfect pitch (the opposite of tone deafness) for me to play any song correctly without looking at any musical sheet, but it gets frustrating when a few of the notes are at such low frequency that I can barely hear without adjusting the equalizer. And for some reasons, my hair cells (the first cell that detects any sound that reaches our ears) are very sensitive to high frequency waves, which makes me agitated to a few stuff such as giggles (you know... those high pitch ones) and etc., except if they're melodious. That's why I can tolerate guitar solos, mind set ja kot. I think I should undergo another set of audiometry tests once I enter fourth year, just in case my hearing drops another 10dB (or was it hertz? I don't know, I'm not a frigging audiologist! HAAHA!) - and if such thing happens, I'll have to wear hearing aids. Ayah kata, "Kan tak semenggah kalau dentist pakai hearing aid", but I argued back, "Tapi... Ira pakai tudung. Keh keh keh". I'm actually worried, frankly. Don't want to be another Danny Elfman - in a good way :P
