Had  two boys about ten and eleven sit next to me on the plane. Nice kids. The one next to me went oh cool!  when I pointed out Lake Tahoe below us, and then the Great Salt Lake.

He swung his backpack on when we landed and never knew it smacked my face.

I couldn’t hear Mom very well when she greeted me–huh. I just changed that battery yesterday. We got in the car, my son John at the wheel, and I took it out. Weird–it looked scratched. I put a new one in. Dead. It now looked scratched. Repeat one last time.

Its broken. I’ve never had such a thing happen before.

It’s under warranty, but meantime I now know why I kept feeling I should take my old hearing aids on the trip. That made NO sense and I left them home.

But at least I have one ear.

Oh no! I hope you’re ok. I hope insurance covers replacements! Do you think getting hit in the face with the backpack broke it?

Sorry about the hearing aid. Glad you have one ear.

Please give my best to your parents.

Kids have no idea of their surroundings sometimes. That’s what parents are for…but even mom can’t always see everything all the time. Glad you’re ok, and that it was just the hearing aid (I know they’re expensive, but less than medical bills for a broken face, right?).

Oh yikes! Hope that backpack-to-face didn’t cause any other injury. Thank goodness for warranties, and hope it didn’t diminish your enjoyment of the concert too much.

Yikes!! Incidental contact sometimes isn’t.

I am so sorry to read this! I wish I could bring you your spare…

It sounds like you’re ready to make the most of the trip regardless (pun intended). Enjoy!
