It Could Only Happen To The Blind This section of my website is dedicated to sighted people. I know, you've always wondered what it would be like to be blind? The last time one of my sighted friends thought that, she closed her eyes as she and her husband whirled around and around on the Octopus at the amusement park. She puked all over herself and they had to stop the ride to let her off. See, it's not always wise to wonder about such things. A blind friend of mine ran a cafeteria at the Denver Merchandise Mart many years ago. They had big merchandise shows there all year round so he had a pretty nice place. It was a part of the Colorado State Services For The Blind vending stand program. One day, a guy walked in, looked all around at the shiny new, well polished, chrome equipment and said, "Boy, I sure wish I could have a place like this." He was implying, of course, my friend obviously was making a lot of money in such a place. Well, he was, but not as much as one might think. My friend said, "You can have a place just like this, if you want." The man quickly inquired how he could obtain such a place. My friend said, "Just poke your eyes out and we'll get you a place just like this." Being blind isn't bad and it isn't good. It is what one makes it and the stories in this section are by blind people who have found a little humor in being blind. If you are blind, you will quickly identify with these stories. If you are sighted, you'll laugh and you should. I do and some of these stories are mine. phil Scovell.
