I’ve always been a “color freak…” A brand new box of crayons, a glorious sunset, a vibrant peacock feather…even a yummy new tube of lipstick was enough to send a chill of excitement up my spine!

It wasn’t until I turned that EPT stick the  loveliest shape of magenta however that I became interested in the weird stuff… I guess it’s my darkmother side, the truly freakish side of this color freak.
It’s the side that asks weird color questions and requests my toddler bring me his used Kleenex so I “can see.” I’ve been known to analyze just about every other body secretion as well. The grossest question I ask has to come after hearing a kid cough in the other room. What color is it?” I say. Ewww…
Okay, I know I’m not alone, and I know I have good reasons, but  honestly I’d prefer to feast my eyes on a brand new box of Binney & Smiths.  Somebody pass me “Cornflower Blue.”    I really need to get out more…
