Alphabet Project: Letter B
Naturally after A we come to B, and with that my handy little topic book gave me "Blindness". Now, I'm not sure if you are aware of this, but I am in fact, not blind, nor have I ever been blind. For a time I wore glasses, but much like my asthma, I grew out of them (or am blissfully ignorant to the condition of my body, but that's neither here nor there!). With that said, this story came fairly easy to me. I invite you to read a little excerpt of the story before I explain myself.
Now that you've been introduced to Mr. Carter, I can say that I've actually met him. It was in the emergency room, and while I was waiting for the doctor to see me, I heard Walter Carter give his mini speech about respect and what to call him. I knew I had to meet him, so I made my way over to where he was, and began speaking to him. He told me that he used to box with Cassius Clay. When his doctor showed up, I said goodbye to Mr Carter, and he said I was his friend, I can call him Walter. It was a proud moment for me, and I knew eventually Walter Carter would make it to one of my stories.
