1. Which of your 5 senses would you give up if you had to?
2. Which would be the last one you would give up?
My answers would be:
1. Hearing, I suppose. I would miss out on music and listening to poetry. I could learn to read lips. I’m not saying that I wouldn’t miss hearing, but of the 5, this would be what I’d be willing to give up first, if I had a choice (which is just theoretical… losing something is rarely a conscious, happy choice, is it?).
2. Touch would be the most difficult to give up, for various reasons. I like to feel the sun on my skin, the wind in my hair, the bubbles in the surf.. amongst other things. Befot that, taste, smell and sight, in increasing order of difficulty to give up. (taste and smell might go too hand-in-hand, actually)
