This post by SD has inspired me to take on an age old complaint.
Why can't men perceive the subtleties of color? Now I'm not talking about some members of my husband's family who couldn't distinguish between an orange and a blueberry if not for their size... that's genetic.
I'm talking about guys with perfectly normal chromosomes who cannot distinguish between hot pink, baby pink and bubblegum pink.
Grass green, hunter green, celery green?
Come on fellas! Burgundy is a color! And it's not the same as cordovan.
We've actually made it easier for you by using food and flowers as a guide. You eat food, right? So you know what color an eggplant is. And it is not the same color as lavender.
You don't seem to confuse a pumpkin and a peach when you're rummaging in the refrigerator late at night, do you?
I've been wracking my brain thinking of male targeted subjects to use as color indicators, but I've found that there isn't much color in the male world. Baseballs come in only one color. Gemoros are bound in only a couple of colors. And fancy cars are available in more than one color per model, usually with very unimaginitve names....
