Ten Positive Things About Being Blind

While wandering about the beach yesterday. I got to thinking of what are some real positive things about being blind.

Just for fun here are some of my ideas. Maybe if you have some positives you can share them with us in the comments section.

  1.  I don't have to worry about seeing something nasty that will make me feel so sick to my stomach that I can't eat my dinner.
  2. I get to board the airplane first. Even before those people in Business class, and I get a personal escort to my seat too.
  3. I can go to Las Vegas, and meet a friend with his mistress and his wife would never know. What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.
  4. I get to visit the most beautiful parts of the United States for free with my National Parks Free pass.
  5. I get to have a chauffeur driven car. OK That bit is tough on my wife and other people who drive me.
  6. My wife never has to worry about a wrinkle. She is always the most beautiful woman in the room.
  7. If I want to drink beer or go wine tasing, I can. See #5
  8. I get to park in disabled parking because I have a blue placard. Lots of places also accept blue disabled parking placards to give a discount on entry fees too. So save money and take a blind person with you next time you go out. Don't forget the placard.
  9. Sex is always with the lights off for me.
  10. I can walk to the front of any line with impunity. What do you mean there's a line? I see no line!

This is of course just a fun list. There are some pretty bad things about being blind, but we don't need another down day. Do we?

As I mentioned if you'd like to add to this list or would like to give us a list of your own, please feel free to make a comment.
