Word Count: 348
Hearing, Sight, Taste, Touch, and Smell. The five senses. Which would be the worst one for you to lose, and why?
Sight, a CSI can not function without their sight. Although, with Grissom, and his “little” hearing loss episode it seemed he could not function well without his hearing but then again, he should have been more prepared if he knew the already present risks and consequences. Why sight would be the worst thing for me to lose? Please, really, I though people were smarter than that. As I have said a CSI can not function without their sight, there is no possible way I, in a job such as the one I am in with such a high rank as I have, could continue working if loss of sight was involved. Everyday I have to sit down and process whatever cases I put myself on, just like every other god damned person I work with I have to carefully scrutinise, with my eyes, the evidence for clues. If I completely lost my sight I could not preform such a function, work would have lost all functionality if I could not see the very object I was holding before me or running under a microscope.
It would be highly absurd if I had a high profile case, or any case at that with the Sheriff ringing me every half an hour to every five minutes, when all the while I could not even see the crime scene I was examining. But why exactly I chose sight as the worst sense to lose, other than I would be rendered incapable of performing my job? It is the worst sense to lose for myself just because of that and the fact that even if I lost my hearing, taste, touch or smell I could still function as a Crime Scene Investigator and as Supervisor of the Dayshift. Sight, if lost, is the only sense that would make me unable to do my job. As a CSI I have to find that there is more to this story than meets the blind-eye, it would be no help what so ever if I was blind myself instead it would be a huge hindrance.
