my eyes have it ... (and the HNT) ...

As many of you may have noticed, my eyes are blue.

Now they aren’t a constant blue; the shade of blue changes because of a number of factors — usually the other colors that surround me or that I’m wearing, and the quality of light. I wish that they changed because of mood, but I doubt that feelings are even the slightest factor in eye color.

I never really thought of them as “baby blues,” though I do like the term “battin’ my baby blues atcha” … heh.

The terminology I’ve preferred to go with, when I want something more specific or precise than just “blue” has been “steel blue.” I like the way those two words sound together. Anyone who has seen really shiny steel will know exactly what that color is.

But I was taking a closer look at my recently renewed driver’s license recently, and under the part that lists my eye color, instead of the usual “BLU,” I was confronted with “GRY.”

Yep, the Division of Motor Vehicles license guy decided that my eyes weren’t blue, after looking closely (I imagine) at my driver’s license photo. Nope. He decided that they were grey.

I didn’t even know that was an option. I know about green eyes, brown (light and dark) eyes, hazel eyes, blue eyes, pink eyes (Albinos, people! Keep up!) Grey eyes are new for me — both in terms of hearing about them and then finding out the DMV guy thinks mine are that color.

Better my eyes than my hair. My boss has brown hair with a few touches of gray. When he renewed his driver’s license earlier this year, they changed his hair color, on the license, from “brown” to “gray.”

Hmm … so why didn’t the guy change my hair color from “brown” to “none?” How does he know that my hair even comes in brown? I was freshly shaved, both head and face, for my driver’s license picture, after all. Hell, I could have been a redhead. I could have been a blonde. I could be naturally hairless, like one of those freaky, Mr. Bigglesworth-type felines. He trusted me when I said I had brown hair, why not when I said I have blue eyes?

Maybe he’s the new champion of gray? Maybe he changed my eyes and my boss’ hair. I wonder if some woman just found out she was gray feet, 5 inches tall.

Heh.

So ... what adjective would you put in the blank:
DZER's eyes are ___________ blue?

Hmmm... adjectives.... sexy? steely? gray-? piercing? nice? I think any of those words could go in front of blue. Actually, they all could at the same time, but you'd need to put gray at the end, or leave it out all together. Oh, and the 'stache is looking good, too!

D-I am LOVING the 'stache!

Ahh, here in my state WE area allowed to chose our hair/eye color and even our height.

My 5' mother put down that she's 5'4" on her license, my brown haired sister chose to put down Blonde hair(she thought it would help her get out of tickets. Yeah she's that stupid) and I chose to memorize the eye chart at the DMV then take the sight test with out my glasses on so I do not have the dreaded "corrective lenses" mark on my license.

DZER's eyes are B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L blue!

My dad has grey eyes. I wouldn't say yours are grey.

My eyes change with the color of the sky. Also if I cry they turn brilliant blue. I like that they change. Mr. Sign can tell when I'm getting a migrane by looking at my eyes.
