Is that a chill on your neck?

In answer to today’s daily prompt: “You encounter a mysterious man offering you a magic potion that, once sipped, will make one of your senses (sight, hearing, taste, smell, touch) super sharp — but dull the others. Will you sip it, and if so, what sense do you choose?”

Something that I like to think is special about me (though I know it probably isn’t just me that can do this) is a special kind of intuition.  Sometimes I call it the spirit of God working within me or sometimes I call it reading people, sometimes I just call it training as a social worker, but sometimes I ‘know’ people.  As I’m talking to someone, I know what they’re going to say or when they’re telling the truth.

I work in a day program with homeless addicts and get to exercise this sense.  I have seen fights and problems before they happen, just by looking out over a group of people and watching them.  It’s helped because I’ve been able to intervene.

Does anyone else have this?

Now that I think about it, I think it’s my sense of sight that is most important for this, and so I would strengthen this.  My sight is also one of my worst senses. I have double vision, thanks to a head trauma many years ago, and I’m also getting glaucoma (odd for someone as young as I am, but I suspect also trauma-related.)

I would take the magic potion, and accentuate my eyesight.  But – only if it were temporary.  I wouldn’t want to dull my other senses permanently, even if it was a way to fix my vision permanently.
