Choosing the first word that comes to my mind isn't going the way I want. When I thought of A words, a lot came to mind. Now as I tell myself to think of B words, a lot are coming to mind...
Random.org has spoken and Blue is the winner.
I'm not sure what to talk about though. Blue is my favorite color. It's the color of my pants right now. It's on my cup and a shade of blue is on my mouse. A cart to my left has two blue drawers in it. There's a box of craft sticks across from me that is blue. My gluten free Chex granola is in a blue (and yellow) package. The hand towel is blue, my blanket is blue, there's a list on the door that's written on blue paper.
But blue isn't just a color I guess. Blue can be a feeling, one I've felt many times in my life. One I've felt very recently actually. One I feel a little every time I think of the kids and coaches at the gymnastics studio that was ruined by the tornado last week. It's a feeling I have to (unfortunately) watch every time my kids think of their dad who decided to blame everyone else for why he's crap at being their father.
That's something about blue that sucks though. It's not very often that people think of a pretty blue sky. The calming waves of a blue ocean. A beautiful blue butterfly. Yummy blueberries (even though they don't really look blue). Cinderella's wonderful blue ball gown. Or sexy Captain America in his blue uniform. :p
So although blue sometimes gets associated with sadness or with items that are just blue items, it also can be a very beautiful thing.
