You encounter a mysterious man offering you a magic potion that, once sipped, will make one of your senses (sight, hearing, taste, smell, touch) super sharp- but dull the others. Will you sip it, and if so, what sense do you choose?
I wrestled with the question for a moment but quickly decided that I would most likely not take a sip, but it if I had the courage to it would be touch that I wanted sharpened. I have grown used to poor vision, and my hearing is a bother to be quite honest. Taste I would miss but I was a smoker for years so I have also had that unfortunate privilege in the past. I would however love to be able to touch things again and actually feel it.
I can't tell you the depression involved with not being able to feel what all the buzz is about. I know how silly I must look for rubbing clothes on my face or upper arm, but my finger tips just aren't what they used to be. I'll give you that it helps when I cut or burn my fingers while I'm cooking but all the same I could do with a little feeling from time to time. Quite often typing feels like whacking away with Legos strapped to my fingers. I got a blanket for Christmas that I know is so soft it's to die for because my dog has taken over it, but I can't tell.
So while I probably wouldn't ever take liquid from a stranger if I did I would hope that it was that potion, even if it was only temporary 🙂
