This is just a short post recalling a past memory that made me smile. Enjoy!
In my former university job, one of my daily duties was to unlock our department office space in the building next door, which happened to also house the Disability Resource Center on campus. One average morning I received the best compliment I have ever received.
As I’m walking down the hall, an obviously blind gentleman (with an official guide cane and all) says to me, “My, don’t you look pretty in pink today!”
I happened to indeed be wearing a lot of pink that day, but was clearly stunned that this obviously blind man would know that. He is laughing and smiling as I ponder how this phenomenon is so.
After letting me wonder a while, he finally says to me, “I know you look pretty in pink today because he told me so.” He then points his guide cane at another laughing man farther down the hallway.
Thank you to you both for the best pick-me-up ever!
