Of course, it's not all about music. I can't imagine not being able to easily talk to my husband or chat on the phone or enjoy my beloved Everybody Loves Raymond reruns. Most importantly, I can't imagine summers without concerts. Not being able to hear new songs by my favorite bands is just too much to consider.
Basically, it comes down to this: I could lose all sorts of other things I love or take for granted, but hearing just isn't one of them. Yes, I honestly think I'd choose death over deaf. Was that cheesy? Whatever. What do you think?
