Did you hear the joke?

I was using a circular saw to cut some firewood. Lyndon had told me to wear ear protection, but after a short break I forgot to put them back on. When he came back, we had the following conversation:

Lyndon: “Hey, did you hear the joke?”
Me, looking up from the work: “No, what joke?”
Lyndon: “Of course you didn’t. It goes something like this: the year is 2058, or 2060, and your grandkids run into the room and tell you a funny joke, but… you can’t quite hear it. So be able to hear your grandkids’ joke and wear the darn ear protection!
Me: “Ahhh” [puts ear protection on]
