Cicero saw it in the eyes

After 25 years of existence I have come to realize that my eyes are of an unusual color. It’s neither black, nor dark brown, nor is it light brown! It’s a weird color between dark brown and light brown. I should have known, that’s quite typical, I can’t be stereotyped.

Now the last time that  I was distinctly aware of this, was when one of my ex’s happened to say ‘you have such Bright Brown Eyes’ which seemed to be spoken in the same tone and breath as ‘Blue Blistering Barnacles.’ Besides when men are cranky they say all sorts of things.

And it reminded me, that every time I asked a friend of mine advice on how to figure whether a certain guy was just playing with my heart (I believe the new age, hip-hop term is ‘phunk wit my heart’), he’d say: Look into his eyes. If he’s lying you’d be able to see it in his eyes. And the irony here is that in all my ex’s eyes I saw that they really liked me, except the last one. I guess somewhere deep within me I was aware of what I saw in his eyes, but was too scared to accept it.
