    Sorry if you got painted. We all live in grey areas.

    I wore an eye-patch as a kid. Lazy eye syndrome, amblyopia. It's tough when you're in the kindergarten and first grade, to have something like that. My mother told me to say that my eye was sick, and getting better. I'm sure she also conferred with the teachers. The teacher never said anything to my knowledge or memory. And the taunting only lasted a day or two. Children are very quick to see something that's different, and also quick to accept when they're made to understand.

    I've read that in a few of my son's pirate books (kids love pirates). I'm not sure if that makes it true, but it seems like a more reliable source than "some guy on an internet guitar forum."

    [​IMG] Pirat wisdom: When offered a choice of one of two bits of hardtack, where one has lots of weevils in it, and the other only a few, which one should you take?







    Answer; The one with few weevils.





    Why?




    As they say...Always choose the less of two weevils.





    Aaahr............not a patch on the other pirat jokes I'm afraid.

    Don't go near Joe Walsh. He's got a whopper of a pirate joke that he likes to trot out.

    Google thinks you're a fashionable punk, not a pirate.

    What I do know is, a school friend of mine gradually lost virtually all his sight between ages 8-12.

    There wasn't anything the "meanies" could say, that fazed him. Anyone with one strong eye, should imagine what it is like to do almost entirely without seeing.

    My vision was lousy, as well. Luckily surgery fixed it. But I heard the taunts. Just part of getting along in this world.

    Someone says something insensitive? What's really so life changing about it. Stuff happens, I say.

    If we can't laugh at ourselves, others and the grimmer parts of life then things will get ridiculous like in the year 2019.

    I would be as likely as anyone to tell a pirate joke but can also see the concern / worry in your face. What happened to cause this? I hope it will heal and you can get rid of the patch. Prayers for healing coming your way.

    Dude makes pirate joke.

    Eye patch says "You want to know why I wear the patch? Come here. Let me whisper it to you." Pokes Dude in the eye.

    Dude would have to laugh.
