When I was little, the fireworks scared me and I had to wear ear protection. I think my hearing was really good or something. What worked best were the headphones my dad used to wear for mowing the lawn. They made me look like a bug, but at least I could watch the light explosions without the sound making me cry. Nowadays, I don’t need them anymore. I should probably have my dog Tofu wear them instead!. A question: what can’t I hear now that I could hear back then?
