They broke awhile ago and would have cost a bundle to be repaired with little promise for future wear. It took awhile to find that out, and then another awhile to get a hearing test and another awhile after that to get a fitting.
After taking awhile for the new hearing aids to come in, it took another awhile to determine that they weren't working for me and yet a further awhile to get another appointment to discuss the matter.
It then took awhile to get my next (the second) new pair and awhile to determine that one of the two didn't fit properly. This pair worked fairly well but the right one was uncomfortable. I would keep them, but the one needed to be re-made.
Of course, said re-making took awhile, it came in earlier this week, and it hassn't taken me much of awhile to figure out that there is still a problem. I called for yet another appointment today, but it will, however unfortunately, take awhile to squeeze me in doncha know and another awhile after that to wait while it is re-made yet again.
That's a lot of awhiles with several whiles thrown in for good measure, but to add insult to injury, when I drove the half-hour drive once again the other day to pick up the first re-make of the second pair (are you still hangin with me?), it hadn't come in yet. So I had to wait awhile for the courier to arrive with the package.
Since I was to wait awhile anyway, I walked over to McDonalds for a bit of breakfast. Guess what? Yup: I had to wait awhile. First I waited in line for awhile and then I had to wait quite a darn awhile for my order to be processed. I'm not sure what was so exotic about my request, but it sure took awhile to cook. As I waited, people would come in, place their order, and leave with it while I stood there looking
It's the way it goes for me. I am so often the forgotten man standing on the sidelines awhile-ing away my time. I'm sure I am the only one this happens to. If it sometimes occurs to you, I invite you to sit for awhile and write your story.
