Someone recently told me I couldn’t possibly be legally blind because my eyes don’t look dead.
I was appalled, offended and shocked. I could have used the opportunity to educate or fire back an angry retort. Instead, my undead eyes just stared at them. Even seeing the words come out from between their lips wouldn’t be believing.
I walked away and once the unsettling surprise wore off, and it took awhile, I wondered what goes on in a person’s head before something like that comes out of their mouth?
And then I hoped I’d never find out.
