Lately I was thinking I must be getting old. I have been repeating myself telling the same old stories and same old jokes.
Then yesterday I was in the shower and while trying to scrub my back my fingertips found a slit. Unsure of what I was feeling I allowed my fingers to explore and slip deeper in, until I could reach no more. In the damp warmth I found something hard attached to what felt like wire. I pulled what felt foreign out of the slit and let it drop.
With the shower still running I stepped out to see what was hanging from my back. In the bathroom mirror I saw a plastic cylinder with rusted batteries attached to two wires hanging from the slit.
I changed the batteries and since have felt much better.
