My best friend and I have been friends since we were 14. She has always made little digs at me for being short and having dark eyes, and I've always just dealt with it. Every now and then she still makes comments like "I'd never marry someone brown eyes they just look like crap" My 5 year old has really pretty green eyes, with my husband and I being Greek that is pretty unique for our family, only a few have blue or green eyes. At lunch today she made the comment "aren't you glad she didn't get your brown eyes?" Why are light eyes seen to be so much better?
