I just learned about this fun Monday Listicles project and today’s theme is THANK YOU.
You never need to ask me twice to talk about things I’m thankful for. And also, rainbows. I’m fond of talking about them, too.
So let’s do this thing:
THANK YOU RED for finally going away. You’re usually my favorite color and all, but not when you attach yourself to me in the form of a colorful sunburn. I don’t really have a color – or a thank you – for the molting I’m doing now, though.
THANK YOU ORANGE for not rhyming with one single thing. I love that about you. Way to find your place in the crowd. A colorfully loud crowd. (see what I did there?)
THANK YOU YELLOW for being the color of the big, bright orb in the sky. I don’t really like it when you plot a conspiracy against me with red but right now, it’s about you. Not me. Thank you, for all that you do. And the vitamin D thing. Super helpful. You know, for living and stuff. (note: that says “THANK YOU YELLOW” above and I promise to never use this color for text again).
THANK YOU GREEN for being the color that could visit my wallet more often, you know, if you wanted to. You don’t call, you don’t write. Was it something I said? I have always loved you, do I not show it enough? If you come visit I promise to make you feel welcome. You can wear my favorite slippers, even.
THANK YOU BLUE for being way more fun to play with than orange. Sorry, sometimes love is tough. Oh, blue. I’ve lost my shoe and I have no clue what I should do. I feel so …. blue. Are you taking notes, orange?
THANK YOU VIOLET for your rainbow of confusion. Seriously, what’s the deal? I grew up in a time when it was all about ROYGBP. And by P I mean PURPLE. Now you go and throw yourself into the mix, and I have to worry about INDIGO, too? Next thing you’re going to tell me is that Pluto isn’t a planet. I really can’t take much more of this.
Since the rules for this game are to list 10 THINGS and there are only six colors in the rainbow (don’t start with me, violet and indigo. I’m not in the mood for your shenanigans) I’d better throw in a few extra-credit colors:
THANK YOU BEIGE for being such a good sport. Man, do you get a bad rap. One quick google search is all it took to find an article called, “Why You Should Hate Beige.” That is HARSH, people. Normally I would do the right thing and link back to the source, but in this case, come on. Poor beige deserves a break.
After all, we have beige to thank for making the rest of the world brighter. Beige, I totally meant that in a nice way. Please stop crying.
THANK YOU GRAY for being an ACTUAL COLOR and not 50 shades of a passing fad.
I am all about finding a good page-turner, but I was a fan of gray WAY before it was famous.*
*Disclaimer: I am not talking to the gray that has decided to move in for good on top of my head. Oh yeah, I am SUPER thankful for THAT gray, said no woman ever.
THANK YOU WHITE for being extra awesome in your use of negative space, but entirely a FAIL when it comes to fitting into this whole colored-text thing I’ve got going on here. I’m hopeful everyone will just look past it and appreciate the irony.
THANK YOU BLACK for all the ways you make me feel good about myself, even when the camera doesn’t get my best angle. You’ve always been there for me, so slimming and supportive, even on my most muffin-toppy of days.
What are you thankful for? I’d love to hear from you! And if you happen to have TWO things to list, feel free to save one for tomorrow because you know it will be all about gratituesday….
