Trials for me of watching the men's tennis final

I love Wimbledon and spend a lot of time following Wimbledon every year.

So there I am on the couch with legs elevated. A really great match between two of the best. As the climax was nearing it seemed a small boy was kicking a ball against a wall. I tried to ignore it but it was really irritating and I went to the window to see who was the guilty party and to tell him to play in his own garden. I looked up and down the road there was not a soul in sight. Returned to the couch with the tap tap tapping continuing. It wasn't continuous so I looked again, all this as Federer was looking as though he might win, really cross now and as I turned away from the window and walked back passing nearer to the TV and it suddenly dawned on me that it was the players bouncing the ball when serving!

I have 2 hearing aids and when I answer the 'phone I have to remove one otherwise I can't hear the caller. I had forgotten to replace it so the sound was directed to my left ear - towards the open window.

It really made me laugh at myself hope someone finds it amusing

    Oh Fortuna, these things are so easily done, aren't they? At least you solved the problem and the ability to giggle at oneself is a rare but valuable gift. I loved the final but was disappointed the elegant Federer lost to scrubbing-brush-haired Djokovich. DD
