One thing I do not like about living in the DC area, is that everybody is in such a hurry. It's like - really?
Nobody has any time anymore. When I am at a red light, people are beeping at me if the light has been green more than a nano-second. It's like, yes, it takes about that much time for the signal to go from my eyes to my brain back to my foot to push on the pedal. Sheesh.
It has gotten so bad, that nobody has any time to stop for a red light. Just two days ago, some dude ran through a light - that had been red for well over a minute. He was driving - and kept on driving.
It's no wonder this country has a high heart attack rate. Nobody can slow down.
I fell into the trap just this morning. I was dyeing some wool (which I normally do on Saturday, but had no time). My husband had to wash his clothes. So, instead of waiting the entire day (which I should have done) I decided to throw everything in the wash all together. It will be fine, I thought.
Famous last words.
In the middle of the load, I saw it.
Oh boy, I got an "OH SO SQUISHABLE" green!
def OH SO SQUISHABLE - (adjective) A color different than anticipated.
Unbeknownst to Lisa. A color that cannot be replicated.
Unknown how was produced. A color so unique, it's beyond words
syn: Unique, special, and breathtaking
Antonym: Normal, regular, Anything recognizable
Well, the OH SO SQUISHABLE green is very pretty, just not what I thought it would be. It is, however a beautiful spring/summer color and will look great with my other spring colors.
Pretty colors for the spring and summer. Can't wait to make those longies and shorties!
Things always work for the best, don't they?
