After noticing my two-colored eye, the pediatrician asked me if I had ever been evaluated for Waardenburg Syndrome. She stressed that I would have had other symptoms by now if I had it but just wondered if that was something that they checked for when I was a child (mom or dad, did they do this? or check for any underlying causes?). She then showed me some pictures on an ipad that the clinic uses of heterochromia iridium (two different colored irises but is also the term used for an iris with two different colors as in my case). She was very intrigued but so was the last patient we saw that day who was waiting in the hall way who felt the need to stick her face right up against mine, breath on me, and proceed to tell me that my woman was a lucky lady! It was an interesting experience nonetheless!

After Catie left this morning, I watched the documentary Freakonomics, based on the best selling book. I thought it was incredibly creative and rather refreshing. I'm about to walk down to the public library and enjoy some fresh air!
