I saw it!!! … with my own eyes

I’m just sitting thinking now… Why do people say ” I saw it with my own eyes” ?? I mean, don’t you always by default see things with your own eyes? Or did someone previously pop into your body momentarily to see something with your eyes and now you feel the need to mention you are seeing things with your own eyes again? 🙂

I wonder where the saying originated from. Surely it must have been justified by a situation where someone did indeed see things with someone else’s eyes and then saw things again with their own… Or vise versa…

Maybe it is just a powerful tool used to convince the skeptic people that would not believe you otherwise lol

Anyway… Was just thinking about that, I’m so super intellectual this morning, bwhahaha 🙂
