Our Five Senses

Was talking to a cousin a few days ago. She is blind. Has been most of her adult life. She said it has enhanced all of her other senses. It made me start thinking about all of our senses. If I had to give up one, which one would it be. I asked her this question and she would love her sight back obviously. 

But since she cannot see again, she told me the sense she would give up, given the choice, would be touch. She explained how important touch is without her sight. But with her sight, the others would be more important to her.

After I talk to her I am always thankful for my eyes. We take so much for granted in our lives. If you had to choose one sense to give up, which one wold it be?

  1. One sense I would gladly give up is my hearing. Unfortunately, yes Carol, I suffer a lot when I hear loud noises like an airplane, a jet, a helicopter, a lawnmower, an edge trimmer, a loud TV etc. But there is one other sound that is almost driving me insane and that is the talking all around me. I am sorry to say that I basically cannot stand everybody talking about everything and nothing lately. So yes I would gladly give up my hearing, but not my sense of taste as I do enjoy a good meal, my sense of touch as I like the feel of most fabrics and cotton and definitely not the sense of smell as I do enjoy fragrances and nature. As for my eyesight, I would not like to lose it completely although I have been wearing bifocal lenses since the age of 10 and I have had to adjust them frequently. But I do enjoy looking at wildlife around my residence, the colors of nature and watching TV but with the sound barely audible…

  2. I won’t give any of these but I don’t listen bad, don’t see evil and avoid speaking hurt words. I also avoid fowl smells and definitely won’t touch anyone with bad intention.
