But in the last couple of weeks, something entirely new. Driving, I found myself wondering if the radio was on very low. Finally nailed it down – when I turn my head, which evidently happens a lot in driving, I hear a musical note. Shake my head back and forth and it’s two notes, chimes, a third apart. Shake more quickly and it gets louder.
So of course I immediately diagnosed brain tumor!! An exchange of emails with my physician, though, convinced me it’s just another form of tinnitus. And -- this is relevant -- I noted that in my journal, a folder in Microsoft Word.
Okay, so today when I got on the computer, I immediately found myself facing an ad for a tinnitus remedy. You tell me – how did They find out about this? I wouldn’t like to think that fancy medical site is open to any interested ad agency. Nor is the idea of my journal being snooped a particularly happy thought.
And as I was writing this, I was interrupted by a phone call from the supermarket. Would I be willing to join a panel to evaluate fresh orange juice? Well, at least that one’s no mystery – because I dutifully offer that Shoppers Club card every time I check out, they know that fresh orange juice is one of my biggest extravagances.
