A man is in a pub talking enthusiastically and at length about his hobby, skydiving.
He turns to a woman sitting close to him and asks, “Have you ever tried skydiving?”
“Only once,” she replies. “Never again.”
The man then realises that she’s blind. “Oh, I’m sorry,” he says, somewhat ill at ease, “does it have to do with your, uhm, condition?”
“Yes,” she states, matter-of-factly.
“Was there an accident?” the man inquires, hoping he’s not overstepping his bounds.
“It got very close to one,” she replies. “You see, it really freaked out the dog.”
