"OOOoooh... he's... brown!"

An elderly relative, who shall remain otherwise completely unidentified, was taken online today to be shown some information about cochlear implants in general and the program I am in, in particular. On the website for the local CI program, lo and behold, a photograph of my surgeon popped up.

"Oh, look! That's the doctor that did the operation!"

A fragile hand flew to the relative's mouth.

"OOOoooh ... he's........... brown."

Sweet cracker sandwich. Let's hear it for the end of the bad old days, shall we? Well, I needed a good guffaw and that certainly provided it.
