Just received from a relative... yes, I have these kinds of relatives!!


There was a blind girl who hated herself just because she's blind. She hated everyone, except her loving boyfriend. He's always there for her. She said that if she could only see the world, she would marry her boyfriend.
One day, someone donated a pair of eyes to her and then she can see everything, including her boyfriend.
Her boyfriend asked her, "now that you can see the world, will you marry me?" The girl was shocked when she saw that her boyfriend is blind too, and refused to marry him.
Her boyfriend walked away in tears, and later wrote a letter to her saying. "Just take care of my eyes dear."

Dude. Thanks. I just about puked up my free turkey dinner.

Why don't we trade relatives for a bit. Mine send me neo-con, ultra religious glurge, but not sappy glurge. Might be a breath of fresh air.

Goddess, that was horrible.

Oh, and if he managed to find a physician who would blind him to remove his eyes, wouldn't they remove the tear ducts as well?

Did she see that he was blind, or did she see that he was missing his eyes? 'Cause if it's the latter, she must be terribly dim to be surprised by the letter he sends her.

Perhaps he dug them out himself, and his sockets were hemorrhaging. The idea of performing elective surgery on oneself and then on another without the aid of sight is really no more unrealistic than the idea of curing someone's blindness by popping in a new set of eyeballs, or the idea of a grown woman, who is just seeing for the first time in her life, being able to take one look at a person and perceive his blindness.

I am the beneficiary of an extraordinary stroke of luck in the glurge department. All the relatives I have who would send me glurge lack the technical proficiency to use email. I still get a few things by snail mail, but the fact that they have to put so much effort into it means I get less. I'm always thrilled to get a piece of snail mail from someone I know, even if it's just a photocopied glurge with a hand-scribbled "thought you'd find this interesting. Love, Grandma."

It's not the goofiest leap of illogic here by any means, but it just occurred to me to wonder exactly how she wouldn't have known whether or not he was missing a major sense, like, on first meeting?

Unless this is supposed to be one more illustration of her extreme self-centredness...[shudders all over again]

Yeah, it's possible. [Smile] But the way the thing is written, she's shocked to discover he's blind, not that he's been blinded, if that makes any sense.
If she already knew him as sighted right up until her operation, shouldn't she be all 'Oh! What happened? You...wait, did you...?!'

...then again, maybe I should just stop trying to parse badly-written glurge altogether, before any more brain cells die.

Her being able to see because a blind person donated his eyes is just abou the only thing that could make the glurge stupider than it alread it.

See, Jesus is like the boyfriend who gives us sight by sacrificing his own, but we still walk away from him. Jesus is the one who gives us the ability to see the wonderful world he made and we should fall on our knees and thank him for his gift, not be stunned at how he looks after his sacrifice and run away.

Does that work, GenYus?

ETA: I thought maybe I could leave the typing errors in, since it's supposed to be glurge, but I can't bring myself to do it, not even for glurge.

If you insist...

There was a blind girl who hated herself just because she's blind. She hated everyone, except her loving boyfriend. He's always there for her. She said that if she could only see the world, she would marry her boyfriend.
One day, someone donated a pair of eyes to her and then she can see everything, including her boyfriend.
Her boyfriend asked her, "now that you can see the world, will you marry me?" The girl was shocked when she saw that her boyfriend is blind too, and refused to marry him.
Her boyfriend walked away in tears, and later shot himself in the head after wrting a letter to her saying. "Just take care of my eyes dear."

No, wait...

Her boyfriend walked away in tears, and later threw himself from the steeple of the church where they were to be married, after wrting a letter to her saying. "Just take care of my eyes dear."

Or...

Her boyfriend walked away in tears, and later threw himself under a train after wrting a letter to her saying. "Just take care of my eyes, you selfish bitch."

No, this is the one...

Her boyfriend walked away in tears, and later came back when she was sleeping and took his eyes back. Forward this to ten people, or he'll take your eyes too.

Damn, having too much fun with this.

Once the optic nerve is severed, there will be no eyesight, even with a perfectly functional eyeball (although they are working on it). I can't imagine how an eye transplant wouldn't involve severing that nerve, although I do believe other parts of the eye (for example, lenses and corneas ) can be replaced with donated or artificial parts.

I'm not a doctor.

As I'm sure most of you know....while it is not possible to actually have an eye transplant...you can have a keratoplasty (cornea transplant). A keratoplasty is mainly done to improve visual acuity, but it can restore sight in someone who has gone blind. It really depends on the condition of the blind person. There are certain eye diseases that cannot be fixed with keratoplasty.

I'd write more, but I'm tired. I hope that helped a little bit.

Seems so. Not only that, but she'd probably be bumping into things at first because she'd lack depth perception, at least until she got used to it.

Hmmm....her walking off a cliff after she broke up with the boy would have been rather interesting, I dare say.

Hmmm....her walking off a cliff after she broke up with the boy would have been rather interesting, I dare say.

Not only that, but for a little while, anyway, she wouldn't be able to see separate objects. The world would start out as a blur of diffent colours that she had never been able to see before. Can you imagine not seeing your whole life and then suddenly being introduced to red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple all at once, as well as depth? No way the first thing she'd notice is that her boyfriend had no eyes.

I read a story not too long ago in the New Yorker about a man who was almost totally blind but due to his fiance's urging (I'm serious!) he got some procedure to restore most of his site. It was a disaster; his depth perception was nonexistent--he just didn't understand how to live sighted since he'd never been sighted. He had trouble doing things like eating because he could never gauge how far away his utensils were from the plate. It was an interesting story.

So, first, she'd be lucky if she could even perceive that the face in front of her was a face, much less that of her boyfriend.

And she'd most likely not be able to figure out he was blind!

(Yes, I take glurge much too seriously.)
