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.

Me: See.

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.

Ah, but you *haven't* gotten into any accidents with a blind person, have you? That's because they're excellent drivers.

Either that or look for a camera crew nearby and hope the driver is actually Johnny Knoxville.

Just be grateful you don't live in Texas or Michigan, Chez.
