Today's 100 words:

When I was young, probably around six, my parents painted my bedroom walls. I remember begging them to use purple paint, as I couldn't imagine anything better than sleeping in a big purple cave. I wanted a dark, strong purple--none of those lavenders for me. I even lobbied that since the high school's colors were purple and white, painting my room purple would show school support. My parents just shook their heads, and when they opened the paint cans they'd brought from the store, I saw pink, and all my thoughts of purple dreams evaporated. I was in love.

Now that I'm older, pink just isn't one of my favorites. It's my daughter's, though, and our house is jam-packed with toys and clothes in various shades of pink. But no pink walls, though--at least not yet!


  1. It's the opposite for me! I would've been horrified by pink, but now? I don't think it would be so bad. Not my first choice, certainly! :)

  2. Deb, I was such a girly girl. I can see where my daughter gets it!

  3. i had a light blue room and now 3 boys. never been a pinkie girl. purple was my fave too =)

  4. Tara, yep, there was just something about purple back then. Nowadays, I can take it or leave it, though.
