Text received from a friend: See you there at 1, I will be wearing a pink jacket to celebrate the continuing fine weather.
Upon her arrival, I said, “That jacket is more fuchsia than pink.” She replied, “Yes, I know, and I was going to say fuchsia but then I wasn’t sure how to spell it and I went to google it and then I just thought this is getting ridiculous and it’s too pretentious anyway, I’ll just say pink.”
Don’t feel like the Lone Ranger. I can’t spell “that pink color that starts with an F” either.
You’re right – it’s because all men know how to spell fuchsia.
But, WOL, is it pink?
Praxis, isn’t it clear that that was what I meant?
But did you have to google fuchsia to work out how it was spelt for this blog? Enquiring minds want to know.
I’d say it was pink but a specific kind of pink.

It was probably more cerise. As that’s one of the new blacks… or so I’m told by one of those who understands how to get money out of women for this type of thing.
