Great things about being blind. Reading at the movies.

Yesterday, three adults, three guide dogs, and a four-year-old boy all went to the movies. I know many people don't think blind people go to movies but we do. And our guides do. We arrived at the large group of theatres. My friend and I went to see the last Harry Potter movie which we both liked. My guide dog Tulia snored very loudly through much of it. My friend's husband and young son went to the smerfs. The boy liked it. the man was not so impressed. So, while his son was enjoying the movie, he read his audio book, checked his e-mail and twitter feeds. I thought this was great. Only a blind person could do this at the movies. He used his iphone that is totally accessible with screen reading software built in.
