Once we got in the car and were on our way home the sunlight was giving her a headache so she laid back and closed her eyes while I drove. This is how the next few minutes went:
I pick up the phone to call...
Meriam: Call my dad!
Me: I am.
Meriam: Well you should narrate what you're doing because I can't see.
Me: You can open your eyes you know.
she continues after talking to her dad....
Meriam: How do blind people do this? Do they see everything in black? How do they know what black is if they haven't ever seen colors? I feel like I am missing out on everything going on in the world because I can't see!
Me: You can still open your eyes you know.
Meriam: How do blind people entertain themselves if they can't see anything? What do they do for fun??
Silent pause because I really don't know how to answer or what to say...
Meriam (panicked): Hello?? Did you leave me???
Me: I'm driving the car!! Where am I going to go?? (head shake) Meriam, you can OPEN your eyes...
