Eli is one of Mason’s friends. He just had eye surgery a few days ago. His mom writes this story:
Eli has been wearing his "superfly" eyepatch for about a week (we actually took it off yesterday)and we have been noticing all of the stares that we get when in public. On Saturday we went to our buddy Mason’s birthday party at Monkey Joe’s. Monkey Joe’s is an indoor playplace with all kinds of inflatable bounce houses to play in. Dan took Eli into one and was bouncing around with him and another kid came up to Eli, looked at his eyepatch, and said, "Hello, Pirate!". How funny- if only everyone in public would react that way.
