Three and a half billion Brad Pitts

A blog by a blind girl?  How?  Why?  Well, the why is my friends who, when I said “Who would read a blog I wrote?”, answered “I would!”  We’ll see how that turns out.  The how is going to be a little more tricky, so please forgive typos.

I’ve always thought that being legally blind let me notice things that other people don’t–changes in people’s voices, the way the barks of different trees feel.  It’s actually pretty cool.  But there’s one phenomenon that I think I’m going to have to ask for feedback on: strangely, whenever I tell a guy that I can’t see what he looks like, he tells me he bears a striking resemblance to Brad Pitt.  This is not the case with women–I get all sorts of responses from them (interestingly, Jennifer Aniston is a more common response than Angelina Jolie).  I’m a little alarmed at the number of Brad Pitts out there, clogging the Abercrombie stores and adopting the world’s orphans willy nilly.  Please, guys, find someone else to resemble!  Poor Brad’s got to be a little tired of running into himself everywhere, and think how confusing it must be for Angie.

So tell me, my sighted friends:  is the world full of Brad Pitts?  It’s been a while since I could see properly, but I’m pretty sure that was not the case when I was young.

  1. Leaving a comment, so you’ll know I’m reading this. I don’t think Brad Pitt is all that, but no the world is not full of people who look like them.


  2. And the ladies at the Clinique counter agreed with me on the orange eye shaddow thing. They said if I had a darker complexion orange eye shaddow would be very dramatic with my blue eyes, but since I’m so fair skinned it would probably make me look sick.


  3. I actually do think that Brad Pitt is all that. Unfortunately, I’m not getting a lot of glimpses of him. Actually, no glimpses at all, except for the pic on your blog. Apparently, you’re meeting a lot of opportunistic liars. What make them think you know what Brad Pitt looks like anyways?


  4. I guess you know what Brad Pitt looks like intuitively, just like you know Melissatheragamuffin should use gold because it goes better with her skin tone. (????) I think if these guys really looked like Brad Pitt, there would be an animal magnetism that would transcend vision problems and just jump out and grab at you. When that happens, let me know and I will take a look and let you know if there is any resemblance. (Don’t hold your breath on that one)
