What color are your eyes?

Standard

Would you believe me if I said that I didn’t know what color my eyes were until yesterday?

How is this possible, you ask? Well, I avoid looking at myself in the mirror like the plague. I don’t wear makeup, and I usually do my hair without the aid of a mirror. When I do use a mirror, I look only at the spot I need to do my hair, and then leave as quickly as possible.

Growing up, I had blue eyes. On my ID, it lists my eye color as blue. However, my eyes are most definitely green. Not blue-green, not some combination, but really and truly green. My mom said that all of her children who had blue eyes as children (which is 4) have changed to green, grey, or hazel over time.

Well, that’s pretty much the whole point of this point. I just found it odd that I didn’t even know my own eye color.
