Wondering Eyes

Someone sent me a quiz yesterday. Like many quizzes that seem easy at first, I took it expecting to "miss", but it wasn't that kind of quiz.

Turns out I'm tetrachromatic which was news, indeed. So is 25% of the population, according to the quizmasters, but the word itself was alien to me. But it ends up being a pretty cool thing - a rare addition to the hyphenated jumble of adjectives prefacing us humans - one not borne of preference. And one for which a support group isn't necessary. Imagine that.

Yet, unlike most of those adjectives - blonde, Democrat, alcoholic, etc - tetrachromancy isn't evident to anyone else. Heck, it may not even be evident to the one with the trick eyeballs.

It all makes perfect sense now...

No wonder the big box of crayons makes me so happy.

Comments about tetrachromancy will be left intact.

Merci. And here's looking at you, kids.
