41, like my sister, she is considered legally blind but can still a little bit, not much. In order to play catch, we usually use a neon yellow volley ball, so she can see it, we had the same color in a soft ball before, but it was a little too small. But she bikes around confidently, I would bike with her but my legs would fall off LOL
I just hope you went over there apologised, explained what happened and talked to the guy then he cheers up, that's what I'm hoping happened...
I assumed he must've, because he found out the kid was blind. For all op knew, the kid could've just been a moron, or really, really bad with reactions! So, he had to have talked the kid but hopefully didn't say, "I know what will cheer you up- there's a super hot chick over there, look!"
I could never imagine being in the kids place. It's so sad to think about never being able to see the world. I hope you took the advantage OP and made a new friend out of an accident like that.
In this case, I assume the kid has some vision, since A. he wasn't wearing glasses. B. He looked when the OP said "hey" (if he were completely blind, he would have just slightly turned his head.). and C. most parent's wouldn't let a completely blind 8 year old go to the park by himself. (I am legally blind too, which is the only reason I look in to this one so deeply.)
