A little mean today, thanks

Scene: Dad’s room at Bickford.

Me [entering Dad's room]: Hi, Dad! It’s Kathy.

Dad [frantic]: I’ve lost my hearing aids! I just had a shower and now I can’t find them!

Me: They must be in the room, then. We’ll find them.

[Much searching around room, including slacks in the hamper]

Me: Where do you usually put them [meaning "where do you put them when you shower."]?

Dad: [sarcastically] In MY EARS.

Me: Don’t be mean, Dad.

Dad: I’m not being mean.

Me: Yes you are. [Exit to find staff member who does find the hearing aids, bless her]

The curtain falls on this episode of Bickford Place.
