Sometimes, a new aquaintance will ask me about my eyes. I ask them:
Are you sure they're blue?
They look again, and start to waffle.

Sometimes, a distant relative will say:
'Sara, I do believe you're the only one in your family with blue eyes, right?
I gently point out to them that they just used my sister's name instead of mine.

Anyway, Mom's got blue eyes, remember?

I think I'm going to start telling people that they're brown, and I'm just wearing tinted lenses. I wonder how that will go over.
