A few ramblings coming right up...
So the other day I was at work, on the phone with someone from across the country. In my very professionally sounding voice I carried on a fairly normal conversation about important businessy-type stuff when the guy on the other end asked, "Are you blind?" I replied in a chipper sorta manner, "Sure Am!" He preceded to tell me, "Wow, but you don't sound like a blind person at all!!!"
So this got me to thinkin' bout stuff (I will now start to write with a country accent as I now live in Louisiana...must fit in with culture). I grew up as a blind person, I always thought I was pretty spectacular to be frank! Well, I was told this all the time...because I'm just that awesome I guess!
Anyway, I have always been a high achiever, I've always expected a lot from myseld and my parents always expected a lot from me too.
But there is something I find so buggin...
You are such a great dancer...FOR A BLIND GIRL.
You are doing pretty well with your math...CONSIDERING YOUR BLIND.
You are so pretty....FOR A BLIND WOMAN!
You are such a creative person...ESPECIALLY SINCE YOU'RE BLIND!
While I know that all these comments come to me with the upmost of intentions...I always wish the end of sentences would end in a different place.
Could you please move that period Ma'am?
