Is Going “Green” Still a Thing?
I’m not talking ecologically-although I try to buy green and
do the “3 R’s” as much as I am able.
What I’m talking about is the actual idea of wearing
green. This week was St. Patrick’s Day
and according to tradition we are supposed to “wear green or be pinched”. I don’t know about you, but I really hated
this as a kid.
I have olive toned skin which has a lot of yellow in
it. When I wear anything green I look
sickly. Someone once asked my mom if she
had had me checked for hepatitis! I kid
Green is NOT in my wardrobe.
But now as an adult, I dare someone to try and pinch me.
Tuesday I expected to be the only one in Tai Chi not wearing
a drop of the Irish green in class. But
guess what?! Out of the 18 of us
there-only one person wore anything with green!
After class I went across to Fry’s to get some grapes and blueberries
that were on sale-honest to Pete, I didn’t see anyone in the entire produce
section look as if they were worried about not hanging on to this particular
Is it just in our little rural town or is this happening
Just in case you’re all wondering, I really did try to at

it figuring that it would have a leaf or two-nope. I had pink, red, yellow and blue outlined in
black, but there wasn’t even a dot of green to be seen.
This is more than okay by me-just having the few yellow
roses on my top was enough to make me wonder if anyone was wondering if they
should “back away from the sick woman”.
This is a rather silly post but sometimes I just wonder
about the little things.
