I would have to say sight, but that would still really suck... ;^;

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 :)

Sight. Because I could still read Sheet music and imagine it.
And I could still watch movies with subtitles. XD And learning braille is to damn difficult for me. ^^;

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.

The only reason I would keep my hearing is so that I could hear the sad and happy times in life. Its okay if I can't see. Words can paint a picture too. But that is just what I think.

I would keep my hearing...

Because even if I cannot see her, even if I cannot touch and feel her beside me, and even if I cannot taste or smell the other finer things in life...

I would still be able to hear her when she needs me, and reply to her and comfort her with my words.
