The other day, I was trying to buy a pack of cigarettes from someone who just wasn’t getting the concept. Usually I say, “American Spirits mediums” and if they don’t get it, I say “the light green ones.” This was too much for the poor clerk to handle, so I was having to point vigorously while thinking up other ways to describe them. While I was explaining, “no, not the green menthol ones, the lighter green ones…” I thought, “it’s exactly the same color as the background color of my website.”
Whoa. That was completely unintentional; I just like the color green. Or do I?!?
