As much as I love sounds and being able to hear every single little thing- along with playing piano and violin- I believe I'd choose sight. I am a bit of a particularly visual learner, and I really love drawing far too much, even though I'm better with music. I think if I was deaf at least I would be able to see what I'm doing, I'd be able to hit the right notes and still play.
This is so difficult... I had to eat tasteless food for a month, this one time, and at the end of it I was completely desperate for decent food. It's insane, I had no idea. If I were to lose it, I would never again taste the sweetness of my mom's cake, the cozy taste of grandma's soup, the strong flavour of a wild friend's cooking, the bitterness of a cold lemonade in the summer. I wouldn't taste the delicious and simple bread, still warm after we left the bakery, with some butter and a nice cup of milk. I would eventually forget the acidity of an apple, the basic strenght of a beef, the pleasure of an ice cream. About smelling... There are nice things to it, but if I think of the times I had to cover my nose because of unpleasent scents >.< But, do I really don't need it? I love my mom's perfume, the smell of my grandma's house. I like to feel the air filled with the taste of christmas food. I love the smell of a new book, the pencil that fills a piece of paper, the strong smell of a pen. I like to recognize the smell of my dearest friends when I hold them, and I like how what I smell makes me fell at home. As to hearing, I really like music. Really. It picks you up on a bad day, it calms you when you're stressed, it gives you energy when you're exhausted, and so on. A life of silence seems terrible. "People talking without speaking; people hearing without listening; people writing songs that voices never shared. And no one dared to disturb the sound of silence." That's bad. I like to hear the birds in the morning, the river running far away, the waves of the ocean, the wind blowing at my hears. I like to hear a whisper that's only meant for me, I like to hear my friends call my name, I like to hear them laugh and do want to be able to hear if they cry. I like the voices of the ones I love and I wouldn't want to live without it. Sight is also really important for me, for I love reading, writing and drawing, and watching the beauty of what surrounds me, and for all those I need my eyes fully functioning. It's the one sense I always considered the most important in my daily life and for my mental stability. I don't want to forget how my family looks. I want to watch my friends play football and smile at me. I want to keep that stupid smile I always have when I look at the guy I love. I want to watch the world, because there's a whole lot that I don't want to stop seeing and much more that I haven't even seen yet. Last, but not the least, touch. Even though one can totally live without it, I still think my mental well being would suffer from a lifetime of not feeling the hug of a friend, or the kiss of a lover; the fresh of the water through my tired feet after a hot day of summer; the warmth of the sun in a cold winter afternoon. I wouldn't be able to hold a pen or pencil, feel and turn the pages of a book. I wouldn't feel my long curly hair softly tickling my back when i take off my shirt. I wouldn't feel my own tears, I wouldn't feel anything. I wouldn't have a presence and I'd be a ghost for myself and, eventually, for everyone around me. So, basically, no, thanks. I'll keep them all
Well I am close to deafness already, so I could live with out that. Already close to blind too. I don't have anyone to touch or hold. If I was in a relationship at the moment I'd say touch. Smell has it's ups and downs and when it normally has it's ups I can't smell it because of the pollen. Which leaves taste. I love my food. So either taste or touch.
