#BeingBrown – Red Eyes

I often tweet about the eccentricities of living in a Sindhi family but this one deserved a dedicated blog post.

Mum: Why are your eyes red?

Dolly: What do you mean?

Mum: In the photos. Your eyes are red.

Dad: Are you wearing red contacts?

Dolly: What? Why would I wear red contacts?  And it’s called red-eye, you know from the camera flash?

Mum: The same thing used to happen to Lara (our dog). Are you sure you are ok? Maybe there is something wrong with your eyes.

Dad: Yeah, and no one else seems to have red eyes. It’s only you. We are worried.

Dolly: *Pulls out her hair in exasperation*
