I have registered to play in a table tennis tournament at my job.
I have been practicing. I need to win.
Particularly because I do not have depth perception.
I didn't know that until I saw an eye doctor some years ago.
It was a regular check up when my doctor told me that I have reduced depth perception. I didn't know what that meant or if it was something very serious.
So I asked him - what does that mean?
You will not be able to do certain professions.
Like what? I asked
Pilot. You will not be allowed to fly a plane.
Oh no. I say sarcastically - I don't have day dreams about being a pilot.
As the doctor explained how I will have a hard time telling how deep/far something is, it occurred to me that I had a hard time with that all my life.
What you told me explains why I was bad at so many things. I always thought I was dyslexic.
So here I am playing in a table tennis tournament - to prove this depth perception means jack.
