Alice, her daughter, tried to get her attention.
"Mom...Mom". Finally the volume of her voice was turned up too high, "MOM!"
"I'm not deaf, Alice, but please speak up."
"We know you are, but you won't admit it," Alice sighed in exasperation knowing those words were inaudible to her Mom.
"HAPPY BIRTHDAY, GRANDMA!" everyone shouted. Alice was elated knowing that her Mom heard those words.
