Camera One. Camera Two.

I just found out that I am partially color blind!  That sound ludicrous, doesn't it?!  I'm still not a full believer that I am- you tell me.  Here's how it played out.
Me and Ken took Kole on a walk on Sunday.  Ken made me wear my winter boots.  He claims there would be a lot of puddles.  I foolishly believed him.  And ended up lugging heavy winter boots through near perfectly cleared streets.  I think he wanted to intensify the work out. 
Anyway we were walking around the neighborhood talking about if we were ever to paint the outside of our house which color we would paint it.  Ken said he would like to paint it green.  So as we're cruising we are looking for a house that is the hue of green he was picturing.  And I see a bluish gray one in the distance, "I like that gray one."  Ken said it was green and it was the green he really liked.  When we got closer it was more green than gray.  That in itself is not proof that I am colorblind- but Ken and I started talking about our differences in colors and how could I possibly think that house was green.  This is when I started telling Ken about camera one and camera two.  "You know.  You open one eye and everything is kinda blue-ish and then when you switch eyes everything is really rosy and then together it's the perfect combination.  I was just looking at it with one eye."  Ken was floored.  He had no idea what I was talking about.  All this camera one color and camera two color was so foreign to him.  I explained it over and over.  One eye everything is pale looking and the other eye everything is reddish and together they make the color everything is.  Ken disagreed. He said both of his eyes see the same color.  I was floored this time.  I honestly believed everyone was like this.  I'm 26 years old and I JUST found out not everyone sees more blue in one and more red in the other.  I consider this a disability.  I wonder if I could get one of those handicap signs for my car.  Test your eyes.  Do you see the same color out of both?  I'm dying to know.

Whoa, really? I totally see the same color in both eyes!!! I'm like Tiffany, though. One is dull, one is bright.
