When I came here to Mars I was surprised as to how much I saw the color orange. The Dutch love orange. It comes from the name of the Dutch royal house of Orange-Nassau. They have taken ‘orange’ to new hights. During any Dutch holiday or soccer game there is a sea of orange. Everything that can be made orange is; and I mean EVERYTHING! Its the tackiest ugliest thing you have ever seen. Of course its all in good fun but for me it drives me crazy.
I hate orange. That color only belongs on trees and flowers. It should never be put onto anything else. That said I have helped my children get their orange things for the holidays. I have painted faces orange, decorated bicycles orange, spray painted hair orange and bought orange shirts, hats and other paraphernalia. The only remaining question is…when can I stop?? Will I ever be able to retire from the orange bombardment?
(This post dedicated to our friend, the orange shirt guy…hee hee. Need any orange shirts I think I can manage them for ya.)
