On your lunch break at work, every day you go outside and sit in the park on one of the benches and eat your food.

Every working day for 2 weeks a blind man makes his way to the same bench and you end up talking.

You find out that he has been blind since birth, likes to eat fruit (specifically oranges, apples and bananas) and is generally curious about everything.

One day, he holds up the orange he is about to peel and asks you to describe the color to him.

What do you say?

I steal (and say that I'm "inspecting") the orange and replace it with a plastic orange. That way I get a free orange and he doesn't know the difference.

There is a short story by Raymond Carver about explaining cathedrals to a blind man. It's called Cathedral. Look it up.

But yeah...it's pretty much impossible to describe color. Hell, you only know orange is orange because that's what someone told you it was called, to someone else orange could actually be blue.

so would they refer to the fruit as a blue? and then in turn they have orangeberries?

but yea i would explain that orange is not just the name of the fruit, but also a color, and that orange is the color of an orange.

I would ask him why he cared what color it was when he had no idea what color actually was.

I'd tell him it looks like it smells.
And then ask him if he's ever been laid.

would you seriously say that to a blind man?
Oh the sock-lickers....

this reminds me of an article I read,
a little girl was returned froma summer camp because she didn't knew the colors and was making fun of it.
the mother asked what color is this and that and the girl always got it wrong,
and then the father confessed he intentionally teached color names to the kid wrong because he thought it would be fun

I'd probably liken it to things you'd associate the colour with or to be like, for example the warmth of a small fire, and the tone of a brass instrument such as a french horn or trumpet. That's probably as accurate as you could get.


This was my first thought. 'Warmth' specifically came to mind.

You tell him it's an orange orange.

I think they named oranges before they named carrots.
