The Blind Snide
Seen during my afternoon run through Runyon Canyon just a little while ago: a guy hiking up the canyon carrying a cane obviously used by the blind and wearing dark sunglasses -- with a baby strapped to his back in a backpack.
Reminds me of a conversation I had a few years back with a drunk girl at a bar, one who apparently worked with the blind:
Drunk Girl: Blind people can do anything anyone else can. Name one thing someone with sight can do that a blind person can't.
Drunk Girl: I'm serious.
Me: So am I. Okay -- drive.
Drunk Girl: A blind person can drive.
Me: What? Let me explain something to you -- the first time I get into an accident and the guy who gets out of the other car is carrying a cane and wearing sunglasses, I'm shooting up a fucking insurance agency.
