Fun...: I like to try to find my reflection in the other person's eyes and see if I can make out what is behind me or try to count their eye lashes...tens of minutes of fun and they never notice a thing. I just have to remember to blink because I loose track of time and staring wide-eyed is just creepy :-) If a person has nystagmus the fun is only intensified!
