1. I'll be this way forever
  2. I won't hear a bus coming and I will get smushed
  3. The professor will call my name and I won't answer
  4. Popped ears are contagious and soon no one in anderson will be able to hear (compare to plague)
  5. I will get used to hearing the world like this and then one day when I can hear once more it will be so loud that I will pass out (and if I'm in the street a bus might smush me)
