From the moment we sat down, we learned that it was better to feel than to listen:
- At first all voices seemed so far away, we screamed. Then, after a brilliant idea to high-five, we were shocked to discover our closeness.
- To situate myself, I found it better to feel everything in the plate with my hands.
- My ears badly estimated the amount of liquid in the glass. A better tactic was to use a finger to check.
For once, my memories are about what I felt with my hands, not about what I saw or heard.
