'I'll have my ear tips now please'

Even I struggled with this one.


  1. Nope. Medicine. No idea how that translates as ear tips though...!

  2. No wonder she gave me a filthy look when I found the Q Tips.

  3. Been mulling this one over. Think 'ear tips' might possibly be 'tablets'.

  4. A young friend has a dad with early onset alzheimers and she said he kept saying something about a neck thingie one day, and she questioned him and finally figured out that he was talking about a pillow they used on trips. She found it for him, and he was happy as a lark.
