Would Rather Be Blind

Once in a psychology class we were asked if we would rather be blind or go deaf.  Only three people said they'd rather be blind, myself included.  I turned to my friend who agreed that he would rather go deaf than be blind and said to him, "How can you prefer to be deaf?  You'd never hear music again!"

I would give up my sight if it meant keeping my hearing.  I could not go a single day without being able to hear music.  A life of silence would be unbarable.  I know I'd lose so much if I couldn't see.  I wouldn't be able to get on the computer or admire works of art, and I would have to learn a whole new way to read.  But that's okay.  So long as I could hear music in my life I would be fine.  I'd go mad if there were no music.
