What obscure but interesting tidbit do most people not know about you?
Most people don’t know that I had two eye surgeries by the time I was three and that I wore a patch for a few years to strengthen the repaired eye. I had all but forgotten about wearing the patch until I came across these old photographs.
The patched eye became lazy, so the ophthalmologist moved the patch to the other eye to correct it. That backfired; I learned to favor my right eye and to this day see everything only in two dimensions.
I remember having to wear the patch to Kindergarten and being embarrassed about it. Sometime that year the ophthalmologist, not realizing he’d scotched my 3-D vision, pronounced my eyes sound and discarded the patch.
So tell on yourself! What little thing does nobody know?
