1 soft wax ear plug, divided in two
1 9 (almost 10!) year old boy without any sense
Insert ear plug into ear. Have Dad spend an hour trying to remove. When that fails, you get to miss school the next morning while you see the pediatrician. After a valiant effort by the doctor, you head off for the ENT to give him a chance. After an hour in the waiting room, the nice doctor is able to remove the ear plug and you get to go home.
Now, doesn't that sound like a great way to end the week?
