I went to see my psychologist again last week. He said, “What would happen if I cut off your left ear?” I thought for a minute then replied, “I wouldn’t be able to hear.” Then my psychologist asked, “And what would happen if I cut off your right ear?” I thought for a minute then replied, “I wouldn’t be able to see.” My psychologist frowned then asked, “Why do you say that?” “Because it’s obvious,” I replied, “my hat would fall over my eyes.”
