Bumping into things while pretending to be blind (p 13, 1.17', 1,17 MB)
Tapescript sent by Nieves (Y5B, 2006-07), thanks so much!
Tuesday afternoon, 16th Feb. Immediately after writing that last bit yesterday I thought I would try shutting my eyes for a bit, to give myself an idea of what it would be like to be blind, and remind myself how lucky I am compared to poor old Roland. I actually went so far as to blindfold myself, with a sleeping mask British Airways gave me once on a flight from Los Angeles. I thought I would see what it was like to do something quite simple and ordinary, like making a cup of tea, without being able to see. The experiment didn´t last long. Trying to get out of the study and into the kitchen I craked my knee, the right on needles to say, against the open drawer of a filing cabinet. I tore off the blindfold and hopped round the room cursing and blaspheming so terrible I finally shocked myself into silence. I was sure I´d done my knee in for good. But after a while the pain wore off, and this morning the joint doesn´t seem to be any worse than it was before. No better, either, of course.
