People sometimes have funny ideas about blind people. I’ve heard silly questions like “How do you eat?” and “How do you take a bath?” (with a fork and knife, and the same way you do); practical questions like “How do blind people use computers and phones?” and “How do you go clothes shopping?” (screen-reading software that reads text, and by asking lots of questions in the store).
