So we all have talents, needs, and desires. Most that depend on at least one, or many of our five senses: Sight, sound, smell, taste, and touch.
What is your order of preference to maintain? Why? Brad

Sight, sound, touch, smell, taste.

Without eyesight there are so many things that can't be done. Without sound, there's no music, everything is silent. Without touch you'd never know the feeling of a caress or a handshake. Without smell you'd miss the aroma of good food cooking, flowers blooming, etc. Without taste you'd never know the wonderful taste of your favorite steak or ice cream or how good a cold beer tastes on a hot day.

My Mom used to occasionally ponder (?) ^^, but she generally had it narrowed down to:  ... deaf? ... or blind? Neither she nor her urchins came up with anything definitive then, and I don't think much has changed* [... other than now having to check with her via Ouija board].

* = If "shoved" hard enuff, I'd probably allow that sight would come out on top.... maybe maintain more independence that way????

So, putting the question a different way....Which sense would most want to enjoy or depend on? Or, if you lost a sense, which sense would rather it be?

I have learned that losing one's hearing is socially isolating. I'm not deaf but in a noisy environment I may as well be deaf as I cannot understand conversations, which means that I cannot participate. I do have a fear of the "Helen Keller" syndrome of being both totally blind and totally deaf. That seems terrifying to imagine.
Losing the sense of taste would probably be beneficial to my health, so I'll choose that one.

I sometimes trip up with my common sense.
