Funny Things Kids Say

Absolutely nothing beats the innocence of a child. When they are little they have little exposure to things that are considered “different”. The wonderful thing about a kid is they have no filter. They usually say exactly what they are thinking right when they think it. The children in my life are no exception to that rule.

My nephew once told me when he was little that he was going to buy me new eyes at wal Mart. He was going to make sure they were green because that’s what color my eyes are. He would make sure they weren’t broken this time and he was sorry they are broken now.

My niece once told me that she wished I could see her because she sure was pretty.

My daughter used to tell me on a regular basis that she loved playing hide and go seek with me especially when I was it.

The same nephew as above told me that he knew how to fix me. He went on to tell me that all I needed to do was blink. That always makes his eyes feel better.

Another one of my nieces tells me that I got ripped off on a regular basis and that I need to right a letter of complaint to someone.

My friend’s son said, “That would really suck to be blind. I don’t know how you eat.”

My other nephew used to make his own version of a Verizon slogan. “Can you see me now? … How about now?.... And now?...”

Another little boy told me that maybe if I cover one eye that would help me to see better.

A friend’s daughter was very upset. She said, “If she can’t see me how will she know who I am?”

My oldest nephew once told me that if he could he would give me his eyes… Or at least one of them he needed to at least see half of what was going on. But at least then we would be equal.

  4. Small women are believed to find it more complicated to
    use fat than larger women as they have got a smaller calorie
    need. Skiing and snowboarding are strenuous sports which demand
    a lot of endurance, so your usual set of ten to fifteen
    reps really isn''. The problem is that many do not follow through with their fitness
    plans and thus fail within the first 3 months of starting a new fitness plan
    or routine.

  13. Dear Playing the blind card,

    My name is Bert and I am in my final year of my graphic design education. I specialize in advertisement and came up with the idea to make an advertisement campaign for the visually impaired.
    While doing some research I stumbled upon your blog and really enjoyed your post about "Funny things kids say". I found this interesting as well because recently I have been experimenting with jokes in an attempt to bring the visually impaired and sighted more in touch. I've always found that humor is a great way to connect people and take away possible awkwardness.

    So for this experiment I created three jokes, inspired by stories of visually impaired people and showed them to a broad (sighted) public at our town square. I wanted to see their reaction on the jokes and perhaps even manage to get a smile in return.

    My first joke whent as followed:

    "A fat, blind man walking on snowy roofs. Christmas would be more fun if Santa was blind"

    The second one:
    "Blind Bob confused grandma's face with a map of the Rocky Mountains"

    And the last one:
    "As a blind guy, ever girl has an A-cup breast size."
    I added two dots at the bottom of the joke to shed some light on the clue of the joke. the two dots resemble the nipples but as well an A in braille.

    After reflecting on my own experiment I found out that there were still some issues. For instance the last joke was to difficult to understand for the sighted because they lacked the knowledge of braille. A second issue I noticed was that people didn't seem to see the link between my jokes and the effort to make a bridge between the sighted and the visually impaired.
    This last issue, I think, can be resolved by printing the jokes of a series of T-shirts that the visually impaired could wear as a sign of humor and openness. I hope this could spark a conversation between the two.

    The reason why I'm reaching out to you is to get your take on my little experiment and perhaps even to get some advice on how I can further improve my efforts on building a bridge between the sighted and the visually impaired. So if you have any suggestions, remarks or ideas on how to do so, I would be glad to hear them.
